All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You – Heart

(facts about the song provided after the video at the end)

It was a rainy night when he came into sight
Standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat
So I pulled up along side and I offered him a ride
He accepted with a smile so we drove for a while
I didn’t ask him his name, this lonely boy in the rain
Fate tell me it’s right, is this love at first sight
Please don’t make it wrong, just stay for the night

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will you want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel, it was a place I knew well
We made magic that night. Oh, he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me, so many times, easily
And in the morning when he woke all I left him was a note
I told him I am the flower you are the seed
We walked in the garden we planted a tree
Don’t try to find me, please don’t you dare
Just live in my memory, you’ll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

Oh, oooh, we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day, we came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise when he saw his own eyes
I said please, please understand
I’m in love with another man
And what he couldn’t give me
Was the one little thing that you can

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Come on, say you will, you want me too

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Say you will, you want me too

 

All night long …

 FACTS ABOUT THE SONG

“All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You” (also titled “All I Wanna Do”) is a song recorded by American rock band Heart. It was composed by veteran songwriter and producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange and released as the first single from the band’s tenth studio album Brigade, as well as their first hit single of the 1990s. The song was first recorded as “All I Want to Do Is Make Love to You” by Dobie Gray in 1979, though with completely different lyrics.[2]

In the track, singer Ann Wilson sings of a one-night stand with a man, only to reveal later in the song that her intent all along was to use the encounter as a way to become pregnant. The lyrics explain later, when she reunites with the one-time lover by chance, that her child is the result of their encounter and she did it only because the man she really loves is not able to give her children.

“All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You” was a success, spending two weeks at number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number eight in the UK Singles Chart, and reaching number 1 in Canada and Australia. It reached number 1 in Sweden in May 12, 1990. It was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Group Pop Vocal Performance, and is the only one of Heart’s singles to have been certified Gold by the RIAA. On the Adult Contemporary chart, the song climbed to number six, becoming the third of Heart’s four top-ten AC hits (after “These Dreams” and “Alone”).

In the liner notes of Heart’s album The Road Home, Ann Wilson commented on the band’s dislike for the song, stating, “Actually we had sworn off it because it kind of stood for everything we wanted to get away from. It was a song by “Mutt” Lange, who we liked, and it was originally written for Don Henley, but there was a lot of pressure on us to do the song at the time.”[Reference: Feldman, Christopher G., The Billboard Book of No. 2 Singles, ISBN 0-8230-7695-4.]

The single was Heart’s last pop chart top ten hit. The band had one more top ten Adult Contemporary chart hit with the follow-up, “Stranded”; “Stranded” and 1994’s “Will You Be There (In The Morning)” were also top 10 Album Rock hits.
