"Accidents Will Happen" is a song by Elvis Costello. It first appeared on the 1979 album Armed Forces, which he recorded with The Attractions. In reference to the song title, the cover of the single was printed inside-out, and the run-out groove on side A reads "Porky Prime Cuts Will Happen" (trademark signature of cutting engineer George Peckam). The record had a double B-side, "Talking in the Dark" and "Wednesday Week". Released as the second single off the Armed Forces album, it reached No. 28 on the UK Singles Chart in June 1979. The accompanying music video, by Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton, was one of the 35 videos selected for the Museum of Modern Art's prestigious "Golden Oldies of Music Video" exhibition in 2003. In 2004, Entertainment Weekly voted it as one of Costello's top 10 greatest tunes.
