"All I Want Is You" is the 4th and final single from Carly Simon's 1987 album Coming Around Again. The song was co-written by Simon and frequent collaborator Jacob Brackman.[1] The song is also featured on Simon's 1988 album Greatest Hits Live.[2]

The song is one of Simon's biggest latter period AC hits, and as a result is included on multiple compilations of her work, which include 1995's 3-disc box set Clouds in My Coffee, the UK import The Very Best of Carly Simon: Nobody Does It Better, the 2-disc retrospective Anthology, 2004's single disc Reflections: Carly Simon's Greatest Hits, and 2014's Playlist: The Very Best of Carly Simon.
