Come Upstairs is the 9th studio album by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon, released by Warner Bros. Records, on June 16, 1980.

It was the first of her three albums for Warner Bros. and it has a harder, more rock-oriented sound than her previous albums. Whereas those earlier records were prime examples of the singer-songwriter genre, with soft-rocking arrangements primarily built around piano and/or acoustic guitar accompaniment, Come Upstairs uses electric guitars and synthesizers prominently.
