Touch Me was released in 1991 by British singer-songwriter Cathy Dennis. The song is included on her debut album, Move to This, where it is listed as either "All Night Long (Touch Me)" or just "All Night Long". Dennis's version contained some rewritten lyrics in the verses.

The song was a worldwide hit peaking at #5 on the UK singles chart, #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #16 in Australia. In addition, the song spent one week at the top of the dance chart in March 1991. It is probably her best-remembered, most successful single to date. The single was also released in New Zealand and Japan.

The video was directed by Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel.

Dennis performed the song on the season 3 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, "A Night to Remember", in 1993.[1]

Other versions[edit]

Touch Me was released in 2004 by electronic dance group Angel City. The band was formed by Zentveld & Oomen. Touch Me was the follow-up to the group's 2003 hit Love Me Right (Oh Sheila). It reached #2 on the UK dance charts and #18 on the UK Top 40. It shares the chorus from Cathy Dennis's 1991 UK #5 & US #2 hit single, Touch Me (All Night Long), but has different verses. It is taken from Angel City's album, Love Me Right.

The song was also covered by a Japanese singer Bonnie Pink and was included in her 2003 single Tonight, the Night.
