"Gimme All Your Lovin'" is a song by ZZ Top from their 1983 album Eliminator. The song was released as the album's first single in 1983 (see 1983 in music).

Initially unsuccessful in the UK upon its early 1984 release, in the wake of the band's American success (the single reached no. 37 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart), it was promptly re-released, and reached no. 10 on the UK Singles Chart. It ties with the band's 1992 cover of Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas" as their highest-charting single in the UK. The song was produced by band manager Bill Ham, and recorded and mixed by Terry Manning.

Structure[edit]

The song is entirely written in the C minor pentatonic.

Music video[edit]

The video features ZZ Top playing at a gas station, and introduces classic ZZ elements such as the red ""ZZ Eliminator Car," the "ZZ Keychain" and the "Three ZZ Girls" as heroines. It is the first of a ZZ Top music video series. It was directed by Tim Newman.

Album appearances[edit]

In addition to Eliminator, "Gimme All Your Lovin'" appears on the following compilations:
