Surprise Surprise is the 1982 studio album of Mezzoforte on Steinar. Their fourth album – originally released in Iceland as 4 with a different cover – made the band famous worldwide when, after the international release, the single Garden Party hit the charts. Earlier in 1982, the second keyboard player, Bjorn Thorarensen who's been with them for their previous two albums, left Mezzoforte

Surprise Surprise was recorded at PRT Studios, London in July–August 1982 and mixed at Red Bus Studios in September. It was the second time the band worked with producer Geoff Calver in London after the recording of their second album Í Hakanum – released internationally as Mezzoforte and re-released as Octopus in 1996 – in 1980. Despite gaining some popularity and playing concerts in the UK, the album was first released in Iceland in 1982 simply named 4 and then renamed Surprise Surprise for the international release.

Surprise surprise Lyrics. My conscience finally got to me Workin' sixty hours a week Leavin' her alone, bored to death at home So, one day, I asked off earlyI dropped that bottle of wine When I flipped on the light You can't imagine mySurprise, they were havin' a real good time Yeah, I nearly lost my mind When I saw the leather an' spikes around. At the place he lived before Guess who answered the door?Surprise, I hooked up with his ex-wife Who's prettier an' sweeter than mine Now, we're livin' his XRI Jacuzzi bathYeah, we just sit back in them bubbles an' laugh While they're livin' in my run down shack Yeah, serves 'em right, surpriseSurprise, surprise, yeah, that trip to Mali.
