Breakfast in America is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Supertramp, released by A&M Records on 29 March 1979. Billboard hit singles: "The Logical Song" (No. 6), "Goodbye Stranger" (No. 15), "Take the Long Way Home" (No. 10) and "Breakfast in America" (No. 62). In the UK, "The Logical Song" and the title track were both top 10 hits, the only two the group had in their native country.

Breakfast in America is consistently one of the most popular songs in the set and it just seems to ignite a wave of joy in the audience when they hear the first chords. I was dreaming and having fun one day and this song just flowed out. I think the lyric was written in about an hour, so I didn't even stop to think what I was writing; it just came out of me. Never could I have imagined when I wrote this song at age 19 that it would be gaining in popularity, if that is even possible, over 40 years later. Roger's Breakfast in America, the title track off the blockbuster album, was ruling the radio airwaves around the world in 1979. Breakfast in America" is one of the most successful and beloved albums in all of rock history. It went on to sell over 20 million copies and still selling today. The album hit in almost every country around the world and stayed at the top of the charts in many countries for a full year.

With Breakfast in America, Supertramp had a genuine blockbuster hit, topping the charts for four weeks in the . and selling millions of copies worldwide; by the 1990s, the album had sold over 18 million units across the world. Although their previous records had some popular success, they never even hinted at the massive sales of Breakfast in America. Then again, Supertramp's earlier records weren't as pop-oriented as Breakfast

In a prescient way, the Englishmen of Supertramp sing about the possibility of achieving success across the pond – which the album titled after this song helped them get. Per Roger Hodgson: Well, when I wrote Breakfast in America, I mean obviously, I had a lot of dreams. One of them was to go to America, and the America that we saw on the television was very different to the America that we’re very much more connected to today. I mean, it was very archetypal in a way, everyone in Texas is a millionaire, for example. So a lot of my thoughts, you know, want to see the girls in California,.

Breakfast in America" is the title track from Supertramp's 1979 album of the same name

Supertramp's largest success came with Breakfast in America, spawning 4 huge hits. Supertramp manages to create enjoyable pop music. Disco, at the time, was just beginning to fade away, as 1979 was "the year disco died. In more up-tempo songs, disco influenced bass fills occur all over the place. However, the real instrumental standout on this album is the keyboard. Of course, as this is essentially a pop album, the singles are generally best songs on the album, as they are mainly the only songs that are able to make the catchy hooks needed to make a good pop song. The 4 singles, The Logical Song, Goodbye Stranger, Breakfast in America, and Take The Long Way Home, all have a voice of their own and are instantly recognizable. There are a few hidden gems on the album, such as Just Another Nervous Wreck, but mostly, the singles take the cake.

The Breakfast In America album was very different from Supertramp's previous albums, which were more conceptual and elaborate. Breakfast was designed to have pop appeal, which is why they included this song that Hodgson had written eight years earlier. Hodgson and Davies had a specific disagreement over the first line in the song: "Take a look at my girlfriend, she's the only one I go. Hodgson explained to Melody Maker in 1979: "He never liked the lyric to 'Breakfast. It's so trite: 'Take a look at my girlfriend
