Song informationEdit

"For All That You Want" became Barlow's final official release under Sony BMG. The following release, Lie to Me, was originally due to be released as the second single,[1] but was pushed back due to work on the track being incomplete. "For All That You Want" was first recorded in 1997, and released in the United States under the title "Superhero". It was Barlow's second American release, failing to crack the American Market. "Superhero" appeared on Barlow's debut album in the States. "For All That You Want" is a basic re-write of "Superhero", albeit with a few different lyrics and a slightly slower beat.

Music videoEdit

The music video was revealed in September 1999 and features Barlow and friends going to an amusement park and going on the rides. The music video was filmed on location at Tottenham house in Savernake Forest and was aided in its filming by residents at the house, Darren Shepherd, Alan Nelson and Janna King. It finishes with Barlow and friends on the roof of the 18th century mansion house. A copy of the original production video was sent in appreciation to Martin Lawrence Manager of Tottenham House for his daughter Charlotte
