“It was an inspired song and they really wanted to give the world a message” commented Brian Epstein, band manager of the Beatles. The first performance of All You Need Is Love was in 1967 on Our World, the first live global television link, and watched by 400 million people in 26 countries via satellite.
What made this hit so popular? Epstein concluded “The nice thing about it is that it cannot be misinterpreted. It is a clear message saying that love is everything.”
