All I Ever Wanted (Basshunter song)

"All I Ever Wanted" is a song by Swedish 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]

Chart performanceEdit

On 6 July 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 number 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 18 weeks, selling over 7,500 copies.[5]
