"Everything I Wanted" is a song by female band The Bangles. The song, with lead vocals by Susanna Hoffs, had been recorded for the band's 1988 album Everything but did not make the final tracklisting. It was co-written by Susanna Hoffs with Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro of Lowen & Navarro.

The Bangles broke up in late 1989, and a Greatest Hits album was released in 1990 to fulfill the band's contractual obligations with Columbia Records. Everything I Wanted was added to the release, where it was its sole new recording, and was released as a single to promote the album in continental Europe and Australia. In the UK, a new remix of Walk Like an Egyptian was released instead.

With the band no longer operative, the single relied solely on radio play and its music video for promotion and performed poorly on the charts, only charting in the Netherlands at #41. This would be the band's last official single for 13 years.

Music video[edit]

A music video was created for the song, which consisted of an amalgamation of different shots from the band's earlier videos for Columbia Records.
