"Breakfast in Bed" is a soul–R&B song written by Muscle Shoals songwriters Eddie Hinton and Donnie Fritts for Dusty Springfield. It takes a knowing spin on the line "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me", the title of a song which had previously been a number one hit for her in the UK. After being released on her 1969 album Dusty in Memphis, it was later in the year recorded and popularized by Baby Washington on Cotillion.

Harry J produced three reggae versions in 1972: Lorna Bennett; Scotty; Bongo Herman (see list below).

Springfield's version was featured in the 2014 movie Godzilla.
