“Breakfast in America” Written & Composed by Roger Hodgson, formerly of Supertramp.

“When I wrote Breakfast in America, 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 – want to ‘see the girls in California,’ – it was just a playful song – dreaming of going to America. I think the Beatles had just gone. Maybe that affected it. But, again, 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.” ~ Roger Hodgson
