All You Need Is Love – The Beatles

I was making a list of all the songs I featured in 2010 and I was shocked that I haven’t featured a Beatles song yet for my monthly music post.

The Beatles were an inspiration to me as a kid. I was probably in second grade when I started listening the Beatles all the time. I loved listening to the orchestration that they brought into their music. The songs were so dimensional even to my grade school head. I can’t fathom the numbers of times I listened to Abbey Road.

I was just telling someone this week that till this day when I listen to “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” I still think there is an extra beat in the song (you see my album had a scratch in it and would skip right on beat). Not to worry, my reader. I’m not losing it. “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” is not the inspirational song of the month.

The song I picked is “All You Need is Love.”

Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.

Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game

It’s easy.

There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made.

No one you can save that can’t be saved.

Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you

in time – It’s easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,

All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.

All you need is love, all you need is love,

All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Love is the passion that you feel. The drive for that certain project that makes you able to stay up all night writing, painting, designing, whatever. All you need is that love. Use that feeling as your compass, because if you love that thing that you want to do, want to be, it’s easy.
