"Round the Clock Lovin'" is a song written by Rory Michael Bourke and K.T. Oslin. It was recorded by American country artist Gail Davies and was released as a single via Warner Bros. Records in 1982.

K.T. Oslin co-wrote the song and in later years would become a major country music artist herself. "Round the Clock Lovin'" has often been described as a catalyst for Oslin's early career.[2] The song was recorded in July 1981 at the "Producer's Workshop" in Hollywood, California, United States. The session was produced entirely by Davies among previous sessions.[1]

Released as a single in January 1982, "Round the Clock Lovin'" reached a peak of number nine on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. The song would become Davies' final top-ten hit on any Billboard chart.[3] Additionally, the single peaked within the top-twenty on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart in 1981.[4]

Cover versions[edit]

  • Oslin recorded her own version of the song on her 1988 album This Woman.
