All My Loving

You can't stop loving or wanting to love because when its right it's the best thing in the world.
When you're in a relationship and its good, even if nothing else in your life is right,
you feel like your whole world is complete.”

 - Keith Sweat
(b. 22 July 1961)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   This was the only possible theme for today's Newsletter (as, if you don't remember, you shall soon learn)! 

BONUS - All My Loving - The Beatles


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_My_Loving:  

"All My Loving" is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney[2] (credited to Lennon–McCartney), from the 1963 album With The Beatles. Though it was not released as a single in the United Kingdom or the United States, it drew considerable radio airplay, prompting EMI to issue it as the title track of an EP.[3] The song was released as a single in Canada, where it became a number one hit. The Canadian single was imported into the US in enough quantities to peak at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1964.[4][5] It was the first song most Americans ever heard the group sing as it was the opening song on their debut on Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

According to journalist Bill Harry, McCartney thought of the lyrics whilst shaving,[6] though McCartney told biographer Barry Miles that he wrote them while on a tour bus.[2] He also said, "It was the first song I'd ever written the words first. I never wrote words first, it was always some kind of accompaniment. I've hardly ever done it since either."[2] The lyrics follow the "letter song" model as used on "P.S. I Love You",[3] the B-side of their first single. After arriving at the location of the gig, he wrote the music on a piano backstage.[2]

McCartney originally envisioned it as a country & western song, and George Harrison added a Nashville-style guitar solo.[2][3] John Lennon's rhythm guitar track uses quickly strummed triplets similar to "Da Doo Ron Ron" by The Crystals, a song that was popular at the time.[3] McCartney added a walking bass line...[7]

It has been hypothesized that the piece draws inspiration from the Dave Brubeck Quartet's 1959 song "Kathy's Waltz"...[9]

"All My Loving" has been praised by multiple critics. Ian MacDonald said, "The innocence of early Sixties British pop is perfectly distilled in the eloquent simplicity of this number" and described the song as helping McCartney be seen as more of an equal to Lennon.[3] Richie Unterberger of Allmusic said it "was arguably the best LP-only track the Beatles did before 1964" and that if it had been released as a single in America it would have been a huge hit...[18]

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 02/08/15:

“Let us not treat lightly the great things we have received from the hand of the Lord! His word is one of the most valuable gifts He has given us. I urge you to recommit yourselves to a study of the scriptures. Immerse yourselves in them daily so you will have the power of the Spirit to attend you in your callings. Read them in your families and teach your children to love and treasure them.”

- Ezra Taft Benson
(04 Aug 1899 - 30 May 1994

All My Loving

Written by Paul McCartney (18 June 1942) (credited to Lennon–McCartney)

Recorded by the Beatles, 1963
 

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true
All my loving, All my loving
Woo, all my loving, I will send to you
