by Mark Nobes, chief editor
The video clip above features ZZ Top performing "Gimme All Your Lovin'" live on the Channel 4 music show The Tube in 1984. You can watch the official video further down the page.
The U.S. Rock Band had a whole string of rock hits in the 80s. "Gimme All Your Lovin'" was a No.10 hit in the UK, and was the first single to be lifted from the multi-platinum Eliminator album. Initially, the song failed to chart in Britain, but after experiencing success in America, ZZ Top were quick to re-release the tune and it soon became a Top Ten hit.
The track was ZZ Top's 14th single release, with their first ever single being Salt Lick in 1970.
The band had two more UK hit singles from the Eliminator album, Sharp Dressed Man (#22) and Legs (#15). TV Dinners and Got me Under Pressure were also hit singles from the album in the U.S.
The video is one of the band's most memorable, and features the trio performing at a petrol station, or should I say gas station if you're American!
