BONUS - All My Loving - The Beatles
|"All My Loving" is a song by
the Beatles, written by
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,
to issue it as the title track of an
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.
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, though McCartney told biographer Barry Miles that he wrote them while on a tour bus. 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." The lyrics follow the "letter song" model as used on "P.S. I Love You", the B-side of their first single. After arriving at the location of the gig, he wrote the music on a piano backstage.
McCartney originally envisioned it as a country & western song, and George Harrison added a Nashville-style guitar solo. 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. McCartney added a walking bass line...
"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. 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...
