"Anything" is a song performed by Eric Burdon & the Animals in 1967. It was featured on their psychedelic rock album Winds of Change. While the singles "San Franciscan Nights", "Good Times" and the album were released, "Anything" was also released as a single, peaking #80 on the United States pop singles chart. Allmusic critic Bruce Eder described it as a "relatively straightforward, brooding, moody rocker."
The song is credited to Vic Briggs, Eric Burdon, Barry Jenkins, Danny McCulloch and John Weider. This song is the one Burdon is most proud of writing. He described it as a "love-generation song". He explained; "It's more than just a song about a love for your woman; it's about love for everything, from the Earth, to your friends, and even your enemies." In 1995, Burdon re-recorded the song. It was featured on Absolutely the Best (1999).
