Summer 1967: The Beatles and “All you need is love” was on the radio

This is a summary of “All you need is love“, a Lennon-McCartney song that hit # 1 all over the world back in the summer of 1967:

“It was first performed by The Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link. Broadcast to 26 countries and watched by 400 million, the programme was broadcast via satellite on June 25, 1967.

The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the UK’s contribution.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked it at #362 in their 500 greatest songs of all time.”
Later, the song was added to the movie “Yellow submarine”.

All you need is love” was the first single released after “Sgt Pepper’s“.

It was eventually included in the US LP “Magical Mystery Tour” and the animated movie “Yellow submarine“.

My favorite part of the song is the last minute when John & Paul go back and forth.  

P.S. The B-side was the fun “Baby you’re a rich man“.
