"All I Ever Wanted" is a song by Swedish eurodance musician Basshunter. It is similar to his previous single "Now You're Gone" in that it is an English remake using music based on a previous Basshunter track, without any lyrical connection. The melody for "All I Ever Wanted" is largely a remixed version of "Daddy DJ", as is Basshunter's earlier song "Vi sitter i Ventrilo och spelar DotA".[3]

"All I Ever Wanted" uses the melody from the song "Daddy DJ", created by the French dance act of the same name.

Music video[edit]

The video clip was recorded in Málaga, Spain, featuring Aylar Lie and Lucas Thorheim.[citation needed]

Chart performance[edit]

On July 6, 2008, the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number three, climbing to number two the following week. It had a long and successful chart run in the UK and a year and a half after its release it re-entered the UK top 100 at #98 due to Basshunter being a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother 7 and it often being played on the spin-off shows.

In New Zealand, the song debuted at number 27 and peaked at number seventeen. It was certified Gold after eighteen weeks, selling over 7,500 copies.[4]
