Song Of The Week - All My Loving
« on: June 18, 2014, 01:26:14 AM »

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 ooh
 All my loving I will send to you


"All My Loving" is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney (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.
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 The Ed Sullivan Show on 9 February 1964

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.

Lennon expressed his esteem for the song in his 1980 Playboy interview:

LENNON:"All My Loving" is Paul, I regret to say. Ha ha ha.
 
PLAYBOY: Why?

LENNON: Because it's a damn good piece of work. ... But I play a pretty mean guitar in back.
 

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



Personnel

Paul McCartney – double-tracked vocal, bass, harmony and backing vocals
John Lennon – backing vocal, rhythm guitar
George Harrison – backing vocal, lead guitar
Ringo Starr – drums

This is a great one. Terrific feel, melody.  Simple but well formed lyrics.  Excellent instrumentation.  Neat guitar solo.

Three thumbs up.

I always think of that fact when I hear this wonderful song. But I also think of something else. I found a "Meet the Beatles" 8-track at a yard sale when I was in college and I literally wore it out driving back and forth on the weekends. It was always difficult to hear "All My Loving" as my fiancé and I drove off in opposite directions on Sunday nights. Years later we drove off in opposite directions again but fortunately we both turned around before it was too late.

This song is an early example of how Jane Asher served as the muse for Paul's love songs.  George is playing the guitar solo in the style of one of his idols, Chet Atkins.  And this song is special in that the bridge is written for a solo and is completely different than other parts of the song.

All My Loving was one of The Beatles songs being played frequently on New York City radio just prior to their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.  It was nice to see them play this song after being introduced by Ed Sullivan for the first time...

'All My Loving' is another of the received Top 50 Fabs' tunes that wouldn't get in my own Top 50; my wife loves it though!
Likeable enough, I simply prefer many others from '62-'64, though it's interesting to hear an American perspective on it.

I do like the way an instrumental version is used in 'Magical Mystery Tour' (in the beach scene I think).
All this chat about mono LPs is all very fine, but I'd value more a proper 'Magical Mystery Tour' soundtrack CD with all the incidental music included.

A buoyant, wonderfully crafted pop gem; the outstanding "single-that-never-was" from their early canon of work and a great choice as the benign battering ram with which to announce themselves Stateside.

There is a refreshing momentum to this track, fuelled in large part by John's terrific guitar triplets which serve to underline the fact that he always was an underrated player. George's goofy C&W style solo is brilliant. Lennon & Harrison combine well to provide a fine backing vocal behind Paul who handles the stridently ascending/descending lead vocal and rolling bassline with panache. The whole thing is underpinned by Ringo's sublime, shuffling backbeat.

Brimming with charm and confidence, it's a tour-de-force effort from all four lads and that magical chemistry is firing on all cylinders.

No wonder the Yanks surrendered.  ;)

Isn´t it rather strange that such a strong and catchy song wasn’t issued as a single in Britain or America?!

I feel that way about 'I Saw Her Standing There' from the first album. 'Love Me Do' and 'P.S. I Love You' are snoozers in comparison. As lovely as they are, of course.

I agree, but they didn't (until Abbey Road) release singles from albums after the album was released on Parlophone.  Capitol was smart by making it the b-side of I Want To Hold Your Hand.

Couldn't agree more! Love this song.

Its a good song, but I've always been lukewarm with it for some reason. Just one of those that never knocked my socks off. I'm not sure why.

Yes!  A poignant scene, beautifully orchestrated...

Very nice version. Shows how well it works even stripped of the beat group tempo.
