I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings-s
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her
Mm-mm-mm...

emiliano you pretty much summed up how I feel about the Beatles, which is a VERY hard thing to explain to folks since MOST everyone is a "fan" of their music. It's also hard to say "I don't like them much" and then say "although I do like such and such" because then you'll be called out for talking out of both sides of your mouth. Ultimately, for me, I appreciate the ground they broke (like the Beach Boys in the US did around the same time) and tip my hat to them for that. And yet I find I prefer other artists from the same period more (BB, Bob Dylan, PF, etc.) - I appreciate iconoclasm (like John in his later years) and esp. like Bob Dylan.

BCarn - I really appreciate your reply, and find it funny that even when you're trying not to insult the OP it still comes out sorta like an insult. It really does come down to tastes, and to each their own. What I can say as both someone born after the musical revolution started (me in 1977) and someone who only mildly likes the Beatles, is part of my dislike comes from the RABID nature of the fans in the early years, like lemmings jumping off a cliff, liking something because everyone else likes it. Heck, I bet my fave Beatles tunes are not what others would consider, and I have listened to the entire catalogue from beginning to end, at least once.

To all of the true Beatles fans out there....feel free to tell us non fans why you enjoy their immense catalogue and massive impact on culture in the (1st world esp.) entire world.

Note to self: try and find some time while not at work to articulate this position on the Beatles better. Doing it at work just doesn't get the point across as well as you'd like.

LONG LIVE RP! and here's to all the positive impacts that music/musicians have on the world! PEACE

PS - I've rated this early Beatles tune as a 4


LK - Fair enough! Comment edited out. But still not meant to be an insult.  Unfortunate that the word "ignorant" is now solely an insult. Not sure if there's a better euphemistic term; Unaware perhaps?

Speaking mainly for myself, although I suspect some others, at least, may share similar views, my appreciation for this song and most of the rest of the Beatles's work is certainly not BECAUSE  of nostalgic associations, but it is also true that they do evoke the feelings of the time very strongly.

I believe this to be because of the strong emotional heft of these often beautiful songs. This one in particular is at the same time simple, with relatively sparse instrumentation, but clever, with some beautiful interplay and counterpoint between the guitar and the vocals. I find that very affecting and emotionally powerful.

Added to this we have Paul McCartney's strong yet characterful vocal performance, and it is all very well produced which brings it all together into what, for me, is a delicately exquisite song.

The Kinks, Creedence, Doors, Pink Floyd, The Who, Cream, Grateful Dead and many others band of that time (late sixties) have a lot of songs that I don't enjoy, but at least they don't hurt my ears and other senses. Beatles sound and voices are not armonic, lyrics are cheesy and silly.

Just perfect. Perhaps the best thing Paul ever wrote. Of course John added the middle.

I hear you.
You had to be there.
Not just the greatest — and still going — pop music juggernaut of all time. 
But one of the cultural embodiments of an entire era. 
Which despite all the horrors of Vietnam and civil strife and cold war becomes more innocent and golden with each passing day, out here in this endlessly cynical cutthroat bullshit. 
Adios! 
Always nice to hear the band that has influenced music in such a profound manner
A cut above anything else out there.

 DITTO!

Same here, I used to listen to radio station called RTL from Luxembourgh on MW that you could receive very well only during the night hours. Far away in Slovakia where the radio space used to be infested with a nasty dancefloor pop, early nineties probably. That RTL played only oldies and language spoken was german I think.  Sometime the signal would be very strong. There was an indicator of signal quality, a green lamp that we called "Magic eye". Radio itself was a wooden box my father's got in sixties, with lamp tubes and wonderful sound, bass and all.

I am not one to post because it is pointless from a pragmatic standpoint.  Nonetheless, I am amused (and sorrowed) by the angst some have in just accepting musical brilliance in its purest of forms.  But, those who struggle with the genius behind this song are used to twisting themselves in all kinds of gyrations when it comes to just enjoying the simplest of things.  To the tormented souls who can't enjoy anything, I feel for you because it is a great song and am sorry you walk through life looking for reasons to be disappointed.  
There's a nice moment in the George Harrison documentary where Paul talks about writing this song but struggling to come up with the right guitar riff/hook. George just happened to stroll by playing the 4 notes that would become the song's main theme.
Ten years old, sitting by the radio all night long waiting for this song to come.
And then.
Heaven.
Never the same.
I was too young to understand what romantic love was but I didn't need to to love the song. How do you explain Beatlemania to people who didn't go through it; kind of hard to get it across.
Immortal brilliance...brings tears to my eyes to recall the mix of joy and pain in my heart looking out the window at rice fields below and Fuji-san in the distance while this played in a nearby classroom lesson, feeling guilty for following my dream; the cost of which was to leave my love behind for two years... Wish I'd have known what she'd pull after 9 years of marriage; oh, the blessing and curse of Love

Oh Lordy, it must suck to be alive in a world where they will never stop playing Beatles songs. Not only that, but a surprisingly large number of people, some of whom actually know what they are doing, like the Beatles! Sort of like living through the Reagan years, I suppose, although one could dismiss Ronald Reagan as a tool of entrenched interests who knew quite well what they were doing as way too many people in the country swooned. Whereas, the Beatles contributed a great deal to the National Happiness Index, and still do. Not quite clear what the value might be of being born in 1965, but you surely know why this matters.

Before they made it big, these guys did a hideous amount of time in clubs in Hamburg. Runs like 90 days straight, playing for 8 hours @ day, over a period of years.

Main point being, one of the reasons these guys were so good was the discipline & practice that experience gave them.


 
Yes! Your comment is right on! The band starts together, ends together, harmony is perfect, lyrics are moving (well       there's Rocky Racoon).  No missed notes, even their fun is clearly reaching the audience. Hamburg was hell, but it made the Beatles.
Nice!

It's interesting reading all the positive and negative comments about this Beatles track. I find myself sort of agreeing with all of them in some way, shape or form. When you compare this to the entire Beatles output...it's still good, but maybe not as deep or thought provoking as some of their other work. That being said, the simplicity of the arrangement and the flowing melody throughout really make this shine. I've always liked the title of this tune. The whole "...and I love her" feel is appealing an unusual. Especially to use as a title of the song. It gives the potential listener who's never heard this a chance to wonder where this is going to go and how it will fit as a title. Though it would be difficult to find someone who has never heard this...for sure.

Surely, I agree, everything is out there and it seems easy, but is radically different when it is mentioned here in the forum, because of the prominence, accessibility, relevance, and it is important differentiating factors, i think. The same way that it is important to you, the prominence given to the songs on RP-air-play, and songs that are ignored or passed over, and all are "out there" within reach of a click.

Another great song from them.  Their early stuff was different from their later stuff but still excellent and ahead of its time.  Early on, they even used key changes in songs (If I Fell).  And I Love Her was a simple yet beautiful tune.

I feel bad. I feel happy. I feel sad.

I feel rich (ooh, la la-la) I feel poor (ooh, la la-la)
I'm in doubt (ooh, la la-la) I feel sure (ooh, la la-la)
Am I in love? (Ah-ah) I must be in love.
Anytime of the day I can see (I can see) her face when I close my eyes (woo).
She's a dream (she's a dream) She is real (she is real)
Can't explain (can't explain) How I feel (how I feel)
Am I in love? (Ah-ah) I must be in love.

I agree with you, somewhat. We must remember, however, that the Hells Angels and too much free beer gave us the joy that was Altamont. What a way to end a decade. {#Drunk} {#Beat} {#Skull}

That doesn't take a single thing away from this track, though. Excellent song.

Stingray, I don't know how old you are but I was born in 1950, I knew the 60's quite well and survived them unlike some friends and relatives. We lost 50,000 in a war that wasn't needed, millions died in Viet Nam and Cambodia, we wasted untold resources fighting the "cold war" as two countries had a space and bomb race, in Texas you could get "life" for two joints, the Klan was real "busy", yes we had some great music and some great times which probably was because of the great adversity we faced and the uncertainty of the future so take it easy on Bitbanger unless you faced a draft, a war, having your head beat in or not know if two countries might just blow up the world.

In the movie "Hard Day's NIght," Paul performs this song to a cinematographic first.  Paul is performing the song while the camera is revolving around him.  This camera technique has been used many times since this movie.

Be careful what you wish for, the 60ᅵs werenᅵt that great, in fact, for the most part, they were a mess. There were some good that came out of it but on the whole, socially and politically, the thing came unglued. The cold war, in particular, was hard on the species. The historical cost of defeating the great 20th century tyrannies (fascists, communists, monarchists, tin pot despots, and etc.) was very, very high. The 60's were part of that price. We are trying to come to grips with it even now. For silver linings, at least we had some great music and art to help us through it.

Be careful what you wish for, the 60's weren't that great, in fact, for the most part, they were a mess. There were some good that came out of it but on the whole, socially and politically, the thing came unglued. The cold war, in particular, was hard on the species. The historical cost of defeating the great 20th century tyrannies (fascists, communists, monarchists, tin pot despots, and etc.) was very, very high. The 60's were part of that price. We are trying to come to grips with it even now. For silver linings, at least we had some great music and art to help us through it.
:hearteyes: pure Romance for all ages..

I will never grow tired of listening to The Beatles.

Just a fabulous song!
Damn, they were good. Nice to hear this lovely classic
great to hear some early Beatles, would be good to get some of the less played stuff too.
I'd rate it up there as one of the most beautiful love songs ever.
Desert island music.
the first song I learned when I started taking guitar lessons.
I love this song. :)
This is such a beautiful Paul McCartney song from 1964 written about his then girlfriend beautiful young British actress Jane Asher.This song rates a 10! :clap: :notworthy: :D
