You’re All i Want (a.k.a. U’re All ns Want) is a song taped on 11 January 1982 in ~ Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California (the same day as Gigolos acquire Lonely Too, a day prior to Bold Generation). In a 2019 interview, engineer Peggy McCreary speak to Jon Bream about the record session:

Usually dressed in his customarily stylish manner, Prince showed up this time through a completely different look: bluejeans, white T-shirt, black leather motorcycle jacket, black color leather boots.

You are watching: I want you prince

He reduced a rocker billy song dubbed “You’re All i Want.”“It made sense since of the way he was dressed,” McCreary said. “After functioning 12 hours, i made him a cassette. He to be standing in ~ the door and also he tossed me the cassette and also said, "Happy birthday." ”He gave her his jacket, too.“I have actually an unreleased Prince song,” she said. “For him, that was one of the greatest presents he can have ever before given me. At the time, I wanted my birthday off.“That was him.”’"

The track contains facets that Prince would later revert to in Delirious, which provides a comparable bassline, and Horny Toad, where the lead synth heat is not unlike the repetitive rockabilly motif of you All ns Want.

In a session, likely at at a later date, Prince update his vocal to song the tune in falsetto and vocalize together with the melody line. He also had his (girl)friend Kim Upsher document lead vocals on the song. The song’s initial recording date and also overdub day possibly fall before Vanity was taken into consideration for the girl group The Hookers that he was emerging ideas for, and also ultimately ended up being Vanity 6. Therefore the truth he had Kim Upsher record vocals for it can indicate Prince taken into consideration using it for The Hookers.

In 2000, that was detailed (as U’re all Eye Want) as among 22 tracks Prince: A celebration event attendees can vote on for inclusion in the Crystal round Volume II release, and was preferred as one of the 17 last selections.
