All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love

The Beatles

Originally a non-album single that ultimately ended up on the Magical Mystery Tour album, “All You Need is Love” was created for and performed on Our World, the first live, international television production.

This song has become one of Lennon’s most iconic hippie anthems, alongside such classics as “Give Peace A Chance” and “Imagine”.

The opening orchestrated part is also the opening of the La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem. Obvious reference to the French, the self proclaimed world true “lovers”.

Among the background singers were Mick Jagger, Donovan and Keith Moon.
