“All My Love” is the sixth song on Led Zeppelin’s 1979 album In Through the Out Door. Credited to Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, it is a rock ballad that features a synthesizer solo by Jones. It was written in honour of Plant’s son Karac, who died while Led Zeppelin were on their 1977 North American tour.

“All My Love” is one of only two Led Zeppelin songs that Jimmy Page had no part in writing (the other being “South Bound Saurez”, also from In Through the Out Door).

“All My Love” is a mid-tempo rock-style ballad, that biographer Nigel Williamson describes as “underpinned by a semi-classical arrangement of the kind popular at the time with the likes of Genesis and ELO”. The original working title was “The Hook”. The song was recorded between November and December 1978 at Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. A studio outtake of an extended version of the song exists timed around 7:55 (the song itself would be timed around 6:57). It has a complete ending, with Plant extending the last chorus with much ad-libbing and a twangy B-Bender guitar solo by Page. This version is found on several Led Zeppelin bootleg recordings.

Led Zeppelin performed the song during their concert tour of Europe in 1980. “All My Love” is also included in the Led Zeppelin compilations Early Days and Latter Days, Remasters and Mothership.

In a review for In Through the Out Door (Deluxe Edition), Andrew Doscas of PopMatters described “All My Love” as “the saddest and most heartfelt Zeppelin song.” Doscas described the song as “a fitting ode to Plant’s son, which hauntingly enough sounds like a foreshadowing of a band on the path to an impending and unforeseeable dissolution.


Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end
For many hours and days that pass ever soon
The tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin?
All of my love, all of my love
All of my love to you, oh
All of my love, all of my love, oh
All of my love to you
The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Arianne one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin, oh
All of my love, all of my love, oh
All of my love to you
All of my love, all of my love, yes
All of my love to you
Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
His is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind, oh
All of my love, all of my love, oh
All of my love to you
All of my love, ooh yes, all of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
All of my love, love, sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes, oh love
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Ooh yeah, it’s all my love
All of my love, all of my love, to you now
All of my love, all of my love
all of my love to, to you, you, you, yeah
I get a little bit lonely
