I don't think George was ever on a Sitar kick as mentioned above. He truly enjoyed the instrument. After the 'The Inner Light' he felt it was time to move on and also he never felt he could master it. I play Sitar and believe me it is no easy instrument to learn.

Those of us who are true fans always felt he was special and appreciated. He played an important roll in the group and was essential to the group's success.

What I meant by that was his interest in the instrument in that period of time. What he did write that wasn't on sitar wasn't even on Pepper and held off until Yellow Submarine in '69. A lot of people don't appreciate his sitar songs (because apparently there's a big following in the skip Love You To club). He is appreciated in a different way, though. Or as they said themselves, Ringo had the moms, George had the mystics, Paul had the girls, John had the intellectuals.

Why would anyone skip Love You To? The intro itself is worth taking the time over to appreciate never mind what else is going on in there. Its like Within You, Without You which might not appear to be that interesting a track but take the time to breathe it in and you will be left amazed and deeply rewarded.

I am disapointed to see that so many people skip "Love You Too." I always thought this song showed a big leap in George's writing and sitar playing. The sitar seems like a challenging instrument to play, so maybe more people would appreciate George and the song if they tried to play a sitar. I am sorry if I seem angry, I'm not. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Both, excellent comments! There is just something about his songs that move your soul.

I swear to you I was on YouTube, which was a full album video of Revolver, and the top comment pertained to skipping Love You To. This was when I knew nothing about the Beatles and was listening in to see what the fuss was about, so I have no idea if I could find the comment now. These days only the mono ones are still up. Since then I've seen comments specifically saying they've changed their mind about the song. I guess it really depends, because a lot of the more sophisticated Beatle fans use the mono versions, or those who have one earphone.
