The Beatles: The Truth Behind Some Of The Songs Which Made The Group Famous


 All You need is Love

All you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need

There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
It’s easy

All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need

The concept of the song was born out of a request to bring a song that was going to be understood by people of all nations.  “All You Need Is Love” was a popular saying in the ’60s anti-war movement.

The writing began in late May of 1967, with John and Paul working on separate songs. It was decided that John’s “All You Need Is Love” was the better choice because of its easy to understand message of love and peace. The song was easy to play, the words easy to remember, its message perfectly optimistic mood of the Summer of Love, with a simplicity perfectly judged for their global audience. The sound produced by these songs is inspiring, driving us all to believe we too can achieve what we want when we believe and trust in the power of’ LOVE!’
