"Trouble" is a song by Lindsey Buckingham. It was the biggest hit off the album Law and Order, which was released in 1981. It was also Buckingham's first hit as a solo artist.

"Trouble" was the only song on the album that Buckingham didn't play bass or drums on; his Fleetwood Mac bandmate Mick Fleetwood was brought in to do the drums. Things didn't work out very well in the recording session, and a taped loop of the drum track, about four-seconds long, was used over and over for the song.[1] The song is sung in a light falsetto.

The single would become a #9 hit in the US in early 1982. It topped the charts in Australia for 3 weeks.

In the UK, it was released on the Mercury Records label. It entered the UK singles charts on 16 January 1982, rising to a high of number 31, and it remained in the chart for 7 weeks.[2]

The distinctive music video for "Trouble" features a multi-instrumental "big-band" of male musicians (five as guitarists and one bassist, besides Buckingham, and six as drummers, including Mick Fleetwood). Walter Egan also appears in the music video as the second guitarist from the front. The video also includes Bob WelchDwight TwilleyJimmy Iovine, and Andy Ward (the drummer from Camel).

The song appears in the film Just One of the Guys during the blind date.
