The Beatles All My Loving

The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show 1964

Rock and Roll

On February 9, 1964, The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, and the Sixties British invasion began. It is estimated that 73 million Americans watched. The audience went wild, of course. The Beatles sang the following songs:

  • “All My Lovin'”
  • ‘Til There was Was You”
  • “She Loves You”
  • “I Saw Her Standing There”
  • “I Wanna Hold Your Hand”

The other acts included the magician Fred Kaps, a troupe of comic acrobats called Wells & the Four Fays, and a member of the Broadway cast of Oliver!, who sang “I’d Do Anything.” The singer was a young Davy Jones, later of The Monkees, who played the Artful Dodger. And the rest is history…

The song “All My Loving” was written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon-McCartney. It was released on their 1963 album Meet the Beatles. Although the song was not released as a single in the U.K. or the U.S., it was in Canada, where it went to #1 on the charts. McCartney has said that it was the first song where he wrote the words before the tune. He envisioned it as sort of a Country & Western Song. George Harrison on lead guitar gave it a Nashville-style solo. John Lennon’s guitar work paid tribute to “Do Doo Ron Ron,” which was popular at the time. McCartney has a nice walking bass line. Ringo on drums is rock solid.

Of course, the Fab Four were Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harriosn, and Ringo Starr.

Here are the lyrics to “All My Loving” by The Beatles:

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…
