All I Need is a 1984 song by American actor and singer Jack Wagner.

Wagner became known for his role as Frisco Jones on the soap opera General Hospital prior to recording the song; he has since had roles on other television programs, such as The Bold and the Beautiful and Melrose Place. "All I Need" was written by Glen Ballard, David Pack and Clif Magness and produced by Ballard and Magness. The song proved to be Wagner's only Top 40 hit, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1985. It remained at the runner-up position for two weeks, behind Madonna's "Like a Virgin".[1] The single did spend two weeks atop Billboard's adult contemporary chart.[2] The ballad is the title-track to Wagner's 1984 debut album. The song is a romantic plea from Wagner to the one he loves: All I need / Is just a little more time / To be sure what I feel.

In 2007, the song was covered by Filipino rock band Shamrock for the Filipino romantic comedy movie My Best Friend's Girlfriend.

In 2009, VH1 ranked "All I Need" No. 71 on its program 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s.[citation needed]
