"All You Need Is Love" is a song written by John Lennon[3] and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was first performed by the Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link. Watched by 400 million in 26 countries, the programme was broadcast via satellite on 25 June 1967.[4] The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the United Kingdom's contribution.

All You Need Is Love is one of most known and most symbolic songs of the career(quarry) of Beatles, and becomes durably the anthem of the Flower power. She will be associated also always with John Lennon, her author, who has never stopped up to his death to promote its message under all the possible forms. In the context of its publication in 1967 (in particular the Vietnam War which rages) the song, which insists on the ideals of love, peace and unity(unit) conveyed by the counterculture, accompanies the development of the movement hippy, and becomes the sound track of Summer of Love Californian. She pursues her career(quarry) for more than forty years, having been interpreted in particular simultaneously in 156 countries, on December 7th, 2009, within the framework of a campaign(countryside) against the AIDS in Africa.

The lyrics talk most of the time about love :

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.

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.

John Lennon's message develops on this theme: whatever you say, make, know, see or save, nothing belongs exclusively to you, and the only thing which counts(matters), it is the love, universal, timeless

We can also hear choruses which say "love" or "love is all you need" during the song.

Bilan :

- One of the most famous Beatles' song

- The song was reinterpreted by many artists and used for many films and campaigns
