The song All You Need is Love came from the Beatles album Magical Mystery Tour. It was written for the purpose of creating a song that was easily understood by all. It was a song to bring peace and unity in a turbulent time. The song was released in July 1967 and was relevant and influential during major events such as the Vietnam War and The Summer of Love. The song is very straightforward in it’s meaning; which is all you need is love.
The lyrics in the song are very repetitive to drive home it’s message. The song is very catchy and it’s overall tone has a feelgood sound. You want to feel the way they’re telling you because the sound of the music is so heartwarming.
The song is saying that you can achieve anything, through love. Loving others, loving yourself. You can save anybody, make anything.
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
The line ‘It’s easy’ is repeated and emphasized because if you have love you can achieve all of these things.
My personal connection to this song is that I grew up on Beatles music. My parents introduced me to the Beatles at a young age and I have always loved their music. I love this song because of it’s message. Anything is possible if you just believe and all you need is love.
