"All My Love" is the penultimate song on English rock band Led Zeppelin's final studio album, "In Through the Out Door", released in 1979. Written by Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, it is a slow-tempo song which was composed in the style of soft rock, featuring a synthesizer solo by Jones and sensitive lyrics by Plant. Plant wrote the song as a tribute to his son, Karac, who died from a stomach infection in 1977 at the age of five. He did the vocals all in one take, and the song changes key on the last chorus.

At approximately 2:50, during Jones' synth solo, he hits two notes at the same time by accident. Some argue that this was intentional, meant to be a dissonant.

A studio outtake of an extended "All My Love" exists, timed at 7:02 minutes. It has a complete ending, with Plant extending the last verse and a twangy B-Bender guitar solo by Page.Dave Lewis (1994), "The Complete Guide to the Music of Led Zeppelin", Omnibus Press, ISBN 0-7119-3528-9.] This version has been made available on a number of Led Zeppelin bootleg recordings.

The song was played live on Led Zeppelin's concert tour of Europe in 1980, being the only untried number to be inserted into the tour.Dave Lewis (1994), "The Complete Guide to the Music of Led Zeppelin", Omnibus Press, ISBN 0-7119-3528-9.] It was one of the most well received performances of the tour. It is also included on the Led Zeppelin compilations "Early Days and Latter Days", "Remasters" and "Mothership".

In an interview he later gave to rock journalist Cameron Crowe, Plant stated that this song was one of Led Zeppelin's "finest moments".Liner notes by Cameron Crowe for "The Complete Studio Recordings".] However, guitarist Jimmy Page has expressed less fond sentiments for the song. In an interview with "Guitar World" magazine in 1998, Page stated that he and drummer John Bonham

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

Led Zeppelin parody cover band Dread Zeppelin recorded a version of this song on their album "Hot & Spicy Beanburger".

The alternative rock band Ween also covered this song live, on their DVD Ween: Live in Chicago.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra and Peter Scholes recorded a symphonic version of this song.
