The Best Years of Our Lives is the third studio album by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, released in 1975. It was the first album that featured Harley's name ahead of the band's (the band was previously known simply as Cockney Rebel). The album contains the band's only UK number one, the million-selling "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)". The album was produced by Harley and Alan Parsons.

The original Cockney Rebel line-up split up during 1974. After an extensive tour promoting the band's second album The Psychomodo, the band members, with the exception of drummer Stuart Elliott, confronted Harley on songwriting issues. The members left Harley, who then had to assemble a new line-up. Harley announced in the Record Mirror of 3 August 1974 that he was going to return with "the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever heard. In the meantime, to keep the momentum going, Harley released his debut solo single "Big Big Deal". The band, now under the name Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, were made up of guitarist Jim Cregan, bassist George Ford, keyboardist Duncan Mackay, and Stuart Elliott on drums. The band went into the studio during November and December 1974 to record the third Cockney Rebel album.

The front cover features a photograph of the original Cockney Rebel line-up, while the back sleeve features a photograph of the Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel line-up.

Since the last time we met I've been through About seven hundred changes and that's just a few And the changes all tend to be something to do But you've got to believe that they're all done for you For you. Oh you'll think it's tragic when that moment first arrives Oh but it's magic It's the best years of our lives. Lost now for the words to tell you the truth Please banter with me the banter of youth
