The beginning always sounds like hesitation to me what with all the stop start bits, kind of like working up the guts to go for it. Thankfully someone does and its off with no one having a dickiebird hope of stopping it.  It was kind of new to the western world at the time, Indian Music in popular music.

Have heard that Paul really doesnt like this song.

Glad to find this topic already exists because I've wondered it myself from time to time over the years, including as recently as two minutes ago! (Don't know myself how come I didn't reply to the thread originally in August of '11; presumably I was on vacation that week.) For much of the time, I just assumed it was a cryptic George-type title – "Love You To…something" – it took me a long time to make the "(I'll make) love to you" leap and suspect that the arrangement of the words was messed up somehow.

Sure wish that George had had the chance to clarify it…then again, any song that begins with the title "Laxton's Superb" pretty much indicates that he really didn't give a toss WHAT the title was.

I do know that some guy made a Youtube video, four or five minutes long, that consists of nothing but ALL the Beatles song titles being sung, chronologically from "Love Me Do" thru "The End" and edited all together. And yeah, he used the "I'll make love to you" to represent that song. (For "Flying", he had to settle for "La la la la laaaa"; don't remember what he did for "Tomorrow Never Knows" or "The Inner Light".)

Hm… that brings up a good (yet irrelevant) question: What Beatles songs don't use the titles in the lyrics?

Anyway, I agree with Von; it's "a cryptic George-type title".  I mean, I guess it's possible that the words were switched around. But I still think it seems George-ish. I suppose that, even if the words were switched around, he liked it that way. Or something like that.

Think of it as a typical answer to a question:  "Would you like me to do it?"

"[I'd] Love You To."

Always thought it was supposed to be ''Love to you'' like most people thought. At the beginning I used to misread it as ''love to you'' too.

It's not that bad though. It's working-title was ''Granny Smith''. Imagine if it had stayed that way. Hmm Laxton's Superb..Granny Smith..George sure liked apples!apple01ahdn_george_06

Yet it was an Apple that caused him a lot of headaches.

It's never bothered me the title or made me think why. A rose called by any other name…

Egroeg Evoli said Hm… that brings up a good (yet irrelevant) question: What Beatles songs don't use the titles in the lyrics?

There are quite a handful of Beatles songs that dont have the titles in the lyrics, a few being The Ballad Of John And Yoko, Revolution 9, Wild Honey Pie (we don't get Wild) & A Day In The Life.

 

Apologies for the layout, the post went loopy with embolding of everything, refusals to quote and refusals to alter anything. And now getting a message reading "unable to save. No post content entered." There is content, I'M FECKING TYPING!!!!

If those what you said count, "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey' counts as well.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Tomorrow Never Knows is the first one that comes to my mind when you ask that question.

Why would that count? Does John sing "except FOR" every time?

He sings "except for" but this did not appear on the title.
