"Do It All Night" was the lead single in the UK to support Prince's third album, Dirty Mind.[1] The song is an ode to sex, and Prince exclaims that he wants to do it all night. The song opens with a simple keyboard hook before a prominent bass guitar kicks in, along with rhythm guitar and live drums. The song consists of two verses and several repeats of the chorus. Also featured is a keyboard solo in the bridge. The song opened Prince's Dirty Mind tour. The B-side of the track was the controversial Dirty Mind ode to oral sex, "Head".
