"In My Bed" is a song by English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse from her debut studio album Frank (2003). It was released on 5 April 2004 as the album's third single (double A-sided with "You Sent Me Flying"), reaching number 60 on the UK Singles Chart.

"In My Bed" samples the beat of rapper Nas' 2002 song "Made You Look", which in turn contains a sample of the Incredible Bongo Band's 1973 cover of "Apache". Both "In My Bed" and "Made You Look" were produced by Salaam Remi.[1]

A rare live session of Winehouse performing "In My Bed" in 2003 was included in the documentary film Amy (2015), which depicts the singer's life and death.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "In My Bed", directed by Paul Gore, begins with Winehouse in a hotel saying goodnight to a young man, presumably her boyfriend, leaving him to his room. Upon their parting, Winehouse begins the song as she walks through the hotel. She is then seen in the hotel ballroom for a short segment performing the chorus of the song onstage with a backing band. Winehouse goes upstairs to her own room while carrying a guitar case. Upon entering her room, she takes a seat on her bed and waits as an unidentified man enters the room and they embrace. The video ends with Winehouse covering the camera with her hand as she prepares to commit infidelity.
