The cover of the album depicts the posterior of someone wearing tight red leather pants, with a man's arm and hand in the foreground with index and middle finger crossed. The model wearing the leather pants was year-old Tymara Kennedy, daughter of photographer David Michael Kennedy who shot the cover. Until , various claims about the identity of the person wearing the leather pants were made.
These included Mike Reno , the band's lead singer, who "just went along with" such claims,  and Paul Dean , both of whom wore red leather pants during the concert tour for the album. At other times, both were ambiguous about the identity of the model. They fit none of the band members or models on the set. At home later that day, his daughter returned from school, saw the pants, and asked to try them. This canny combination of AOR hooks and new wave production gloss boasts some memorable radio-ready tunes but isn't as solid an album as its success might lead one to believe.
The best tunes on Get Lucky were the songs that became its hit singles: "Working for the Weekend" is a party anthem that blends some gutsy hard-rock guitar riffs with a synthesizer-drenched new wave rhythm arrangement to become a huge hit, while "The Lucky Ones" layers clever lyrics about the jealousy that success inspires in others over a song that mixes pomp rock grandeur with a punchy AOR arrangement full of gutsy yet slick guitar riffs.
Loverboy got additional airplay with "When It's Over," a moody power ballad that boasts a show-stoppingly emotional vocal performance from Mike Reno , and "Take Me to the Top," a sleek mid-tempo piece built on a hypnotic synthesizer arrangement. The rest of Get Lucky isn't as impressive as these hits because it relies on filler to pad the album out: "Gangs in the Street" is an overwrought song about street tensions whose lyrics are melodramatic to the point of being unintentionally funny, and "Emotional" is a sloppy bar band jam with annoyingly sexist lyrics and an awful vocal from Paul Dean.
Due to this overabundance of less than stellar tracks, Get Lucky fails to be as consistent a listen as Loverboy or Keep It Up , but offers enough solid tracks to please the group's fans and AOR fanatics. Other listeners may want to check out the album's highlights on a compilation before picking it up.
