Fanny – All Mine

This song has a pop sound that is really catchy. Al Mine would have fit the top 40 at the time perfectly. The more I’ve listened to this band the more I’ve become a fan. This song was the B side to the single with Summer Song as the A side.

Fanny played hard rock, soul, some Motown-ish music (like this one), and just rock and roll. I did get a comment from someone who saw them live in the 1970s. The comment was LOUD and very good as they opened for bands such Procol Harum, Humble Pie, Deep Purple, and David Bowie.

When you are an all female band opening up for these bands…you are not a novelty…you are the real deal. They were more successful in the UK and Europe, where audiences appreciated their music and respected their work.

Did the public ignore them because they were all female? If so, the public missed out.

They fit in with different genres and they deserved more attention. This song was written by the sisters June and Jean Millington. It was on their Mother’s Pride album.

Fanny released a studio album in 2018 called Fanny Walked the Earth. Their last  album before that one was Rock and Roll Survivors released in 1974.

June Millington:  “We knew we had to prove we could play and deliver live. Otherwise, no one would believe it.” 

All Mine

Oh, when you’re looking for someone to love
It isn’t easy to live without love
And when you’re lonely, it’s harder to laugh
You made it easy, that’s all in the past

Oh baby, I love when you give to me; you’re all mine, all mine

It’s hard live when you’re by yourself
We need to give to somebody else
You need a lover to rock you to sleep
And lend a shoulder when you’re dead on your feet

Oh baby, I love when you give to me; you’re all mine, all mine
Oh baby, I love when you give to me; you’re all mine, all mine

It’s hard live when you’re by yourself (by yourself)
We need to give to somebody else (somebody else)
You need a lover to rock you to sleep (rock you to sleep)
And lend a shoulder when you’re dead on your feet

Oh baby, I love when you give to me; you’re all mine, all mine
All mine (mine, all mine)
I’m in love with you, say you love me, too etc

    1. Yes it is more of a pop song than some of the other blue’s songs I’ve posted. I guess they were trying to get that elusive hit on some of their more pop songs.

  1. I like it. Probably a little more than some of the other ones you’ve posted by them, it certainly had a radio-friendly pop sound. When was it – ’74 or 75? Should have had at least a little success.

    1. The last Randy Newman song I liked a lot but yes…this fit in with the time and I would imagine it was a swing for a pop hit. It was 73…I should have listed that! As Bruce said in the comments…it’s more tame than the others I’ve posted.

      1. I know…I’m not sure why. The only thing I can think of is they sound better live than they did on record. Live they sound more full.
