All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You

First recorded (as “All I Want to Do is Make Love to You”) by Dobie Gray (1979).
Hit version by Heart (US #2/UK #8/CAN #1/AUS #1 1990).

From the wiki: “It was composed by veteran songwriter and producer Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange. 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.

“Of the song, Heart guitarist Ann Wilson says “[W]e had sworn off it because it kind of stood for everything we wanted to get away from. [But] it was a song by ‘Mutt’ Lange, who we liked, and it was originally written for Don Henley, [and] there was a lot of pressure on us to do the song at the time.'”
