Simple words with a powerful message. That was the magic of John Lennon. Commissioned by the BBC nearly 50 years ago for Our World, the first live global link television event ever, The UK asked the Beatles to create a song which would be universally appealing and understood. And so it was. Seen by more than 400 million people in 25 different countries on June 25 1967, All You Need Is Love was performed by The Beatles. The song went on to the top of the charts in the US and GB and then down in history where it remains as one of the all time greats.

 
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.

 

 

All You Need is Love

Written by John Lennon, Paul McCartney
 

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say, but you can learn
How to play the game
It’s easy.
Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do, but you can learn
How to be you in time
It’s easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
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.
All you need is love. (All together now).
All you need is love. (Everybody).
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.
Love is all you need.
Love is all you need

(Yesterday)
(Oh yeah)
(She love you, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(She love you, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Oh, yesterday)
