Repeat When Necessary is an album by Welsh rock musician Dave Edmunds. Produced by Edmunds, it was released in 1979 by Swan Song Records (see 1979 in music). It was recorded and released at the same time as Nick Lowe's Labour of Lust, and features the same lineup of musicians: Edmunds, Lowe, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams, collectively known as Rockpile.

"Girls Talk," written by Elvis Costello, Graham Parker's "Crawling from the Wreckage," and the Hank DeVito-penned "Queen of Hearts" are among the highlights of this album. Juice Newton would cover "Queen of Hearts" in an arrangement virtually identical to Edmunds' on Juice, her 1981 breakthrough album.

Among the more obscure covers on the album are "Dynamite" (originally recorded by Cliff Richard), and "Take Me For A Little While" (originally recorded by Evie Sands and, later, covered by Dusty Springfield and the Vanilla Fudge). "Home In My Hand" had been recorded seven years before by Nick Lowe's old band, Brinsley Schwarz. "Bad is Bad," written by Huey Lewis, would later be recorded by Lewis' band the News for their 1983 multi-platinum album Sports.
