"Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" is a song by English singer Samantha Fox from her debut studio album, Touch Me (1986). Written by Mark Shreeve, Jon Astrop, and Pete Q. Harris, and produced by the latter two, the song was released on 10 March 1986 as Fox's debut single and the lead single from the Touch Me album.

"Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" was a worldwide success, peaking at number three on the UK Singles Chart and number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, while topping the charts in Australia, Canada, Finland, Greece, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland.

Lyrics and music video[edit]

The song is about her searching for a man. The accompanying music video featured Fox performing to a packed crowd wearing ripped denim jeans. During the song, she pulls a young man from the crowd and teases him before moving on to someone else. A stand-out scene from the video is the close-up shot of Fox as she is heard moaning in a sexual manner. The song itself is layered with sexual lines, including: "Like a tramp in the night, I was begging for you, to treat my body like you wanted to" and of course the chorus itself, "Touch me, touch me, I wanna feel your body, your heartbeat next to mine, touch me, touch me NOW!"
