"All You Need Is Love" is a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon-McCartney. It was first performed by the Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link. Watched by over 400 million in 25 countries, the programme was broadcast via satelliteon 25 June 1967. The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the United Kingdom's contribution.
The Beatles were asked to come up with a song with a message understood by everyone. "It was an inspired song and they really wanted to give the world a message," said Brian Epstein. "The nice thing about it is that it cannot be misinterpreted. It is a clear message saying that love is everything." According to journalist Jade Wright, "Lennon was fascinated by the power of slogans to unite people and never afraid to create art out of propaganda. When asked in 1971 whether songs like "Give Peace a Chance" and "Power to the People" were propaganda songs, he answered: 'Sure. So was All You Need Is Love. I'm a revolutionary artist. My art is dedicated to change.'"
Alan J was first, and correct, with:
All You Need Is Love.
Well, I don't know. So I consulted the great Googly-moogly, which tells me that song is "All You Need is Love."
Happy weekend, people!
"Why Don't We Do It In The Road"! (Joking)
In reality, "All You Need Is Love."

Donald Trump always boasted about his ratings for "Celebrity Apprentice." Now he can say the same thing about his first presidential debate, even if he didn't like the show very much.
Thursday's prime-time GOP candidates' forum on Fox News Channel reached a stunning 24 million viewers, by far the largest audience ever for that network and any cable news event. The closest was the 1992 "Larry King Live" debate between Al Gore and Ross Perot on CNN, which was seen by 16.8 million people, the Nielsen company said.
In fact, it stands as the most-watched television program of the summer so far, beating the last game of the NBA Finals and the women's World Cup soccer finals, Nielsen said.
The debate left front-runner Trump singed by the aggressive questioning of Fox's moderator team of Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace. Trump tweeted out criticism of the moderators as "not very good or professional" and retweeted a message from a supporter who called Kelly a "bimbo."
A Maine man who travels the nation to document the final resting places of poets has completed a summer tour in which he visited his 500th grave.
Dead Poets Society of America founder Walter Skold wrapped up Friday at the graves of Philip Pendleton Cooke in Millwood, Virginia, and Marianne Moore in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He also visited his father's grave in York, Pennsylvania. He's heading back home to Freeport, Maine.
He says the most memorable event was a memorial to four girls killed in a church bombing in 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama, where he read Dudley Randall's "Ballad of Birmingham."
The society's name was partly inspired by the 1989 Robin Williams movie "Dead Poets Society."

North Korea announced Friday it was moving its clocks back 30 minutes to create a new "Pyongyang Time" -- breaking from a standard imposed by "wicked" Japanese imperialists more than a century ago.
The change will put the standard time in North Korea at GMT+8:30, 30 minutes behind South Korea which, like Japan, is at GMT+9:00.
North Korea said the time change, approved on Wednesday by its rubber-stamp parliament, would come into effect from August 15, which this year marks the 70th anniversary of the Korean peninsula's liberation from Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule.
Standard time in pre-colonial Korea had run at GMT+8:30 but was changed to Japan standard time in 1912.
South Korea had similarly changed its standard time in 1954 -- again to reflect the break from Japanese rule -- but reverted to Japan standard time in 1961 after Park Chung-Hee came to power in a military coup.
A top forest service official in Arizona on Thursday halted a proposed roundup of about 100 wild horses roaming on public lands near Phoenix, following a public outcry and a legal challenge filed by conservationists.
Neil Bosworth, supervisor of the Tonto National Forest, said he will take "another look" at the proposal to oust the horses from their long-standing home there, some 75 miles (120 km) northeast of Phoenix.
Forest managers, citing fear for public safety, had issued a notice of intent to remove the equines from the well-traveled recreational area of the Tonto forest, which they said has seen an increasing number of visitors and vehicles in recent years.
Plans called for the horses to be auctioned by the state or at a private sale, and that the remaining horses may be "condemned and destroyed, or otherwise disposed of."
The planned removal sparked public outrage by horse lovers and conservationists and prompted the non-profit Salt River Wild Horse Management Group to seek a federal court injunction on Wednesday to try to block the Forest Service's plans.

Another federal appeals court Friday ruled against Catholic church-affiliated groups that oppose being required to provide contraceptive care to employees through a third party.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a Brooklyn judge's ruling affecting over 25,000 employees at two high schools, six hospitals, three nursing homes and several nonprofits.
The appeals court in Manhattan said an Affordable Care Act provision that lets religion-related entities put the burden for providing contraceptive care services on third parties does not erode religious rights.
In a decision written by Judge Rosemary Pooler, the 2nd Circuit noted that six other appeals circuits have rejected similar cases brought for religious reasons since Judge Brian Cogan ruled in Brooklyn in December 2013. Four of those cases have been appealed to the Supreme Court.

Nearly 70 years after they were uprooted to make way for United States' nuclear tests, Bikini Islanders have approved two new resolutions seeking Washington's aid to relocate again -- including one citing the "psychological toll" of leaving their atoll.
For decades, Bikini islanders have struggled to survive on Kili, an inhospitable and isolated island with no lagoon for fishing or calm anchorage for boats.
Their hardship has worsened in the past four years with ocean water repeatedly flooding the land, and an airport runway that turns to mud when it rains.
It has reached an intolerable stage for the Bikini Council, which has now requested Washington's assistance with relocating the people who have lived in exile since the start of the nuclear testing at Bikini atoll in 1946.
Added to the problem of subsistence is the impact of rising sea levels on Kili and Ejit Islands, also home to people relocated from Bikini Atoll, which are "covered by high waves at least five times in the last four years, resulting in contamination of all wells on both islands", the resolution said.

A Faroe Islands court on Friday found five activists from the militant conservation group Sea Shepherd guilty of disrupting the region's traditional whale hunt, one of the activists said.
The five were arrested on July 23 in the Faroe Islands -- an archipelago of 18 islands that make up an autonomous province of Denmark -- as they attempted to stop and document the annual pilot whale cull.
The court found Marianne Baldo of Italy, Kevin Schiltz of Luxembourg, Christophe Bondue of Belgium, Xavier Figarella of France and Rosie Kunneke of South Africa guilty of contravening the Faroese Pilot Whale Act, Kunneke told AFP.
The court handed down sentences ranging from 5,000 kroner (670 euros, $735) or eight days in prison to 35,000 kroner or 14 days in prison. The Sea Shepherd organisation was also fined 75,000 kroner.

A 20-year-old East Texas man jumped into a quickly arranged marriage after a judge told him last month he had a choice of getting hitched or spending 15 days in jail on an assault charge.
According to court documents obtained on Friday, Smith County Judge Randall Rogers gave the option to Josten Bundy, of Tyler, Texas, who was arrested in March on a charge of assault causing bodily injury, a misdemeanor. Bundy had gotten into a fight with the ex-boyfriend of his then girlfriend and now wife.
The judge said he would grant probation if Bundy married his 19-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth Jaynes, within 30 days, write Bible verses and attend counseling. If he declined, he would go to jail, according to a transcript of the proceedings obtained by Tyler TV broadcaster KLTV.
The bride's father was angry at the judge for pressuring the pair into marriage and was looking into whether this was judicial misconduct, he told KLTV.
The couple, who had talked about eventually getting married but did not have immediate wedding plans, is happy that they have tied the knot. But did not appreciate being forced into it, they told the broadcaster. They were not immediately available for comment.
Frances Kelsey, a Canadian doctor known for her tenacity in keeping a dangerous drug off the U.S. market, died Friday morning at age 101.
She died less than 24 hours after receiving the Order of Canada in a private ceremony at her daughter's home in London, Ont.
Kelsey was a medical officer for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the early 1960s when she raised concerns about thalidomide, a drug that was being used in other countries to treat morning sickness and insomnia in pregnant women.
Despite pressure from the makers of thalidomide to approve the drug, she refused, and as a result, thousands of children were saved from crippling birth defects.
Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lt.-Gov. of Ontario, presented the insignia of Member of the Order of Canada to Kelsey on Thursday on behalf of Gov. Gen. David Johnston.
Kelsey's daughter, Christine Kelsey, says the ceremony had originally been scheduled for September but was held earlier due to her mother's deteriorating health.
