"All You Wanted" was Branch's second single, following "Everywhere
." It climbed to #6 in the US and helped The Spirit Room
sell over 2 million copies.
Branch's producer on the album was John Shanks, who had worked with Melissa Etheridge and Rod Stewart. He and Branch worked very well together; when Michelle played him "All You Wanted" in demo form, he knew it was already a great song and he just had to frame it. The final product ended up being very similar to the demo.
