I can't figure out if George's title is misspelled;  Did he mean "Love you as well [too]" or "[I'd] Love You To . . . .[insert verb to complete the infinitive]"  

Or, maybe I just need to get out more.  Either way, great song.

That's always made me wonder as well. I used to misread it as "Love You Do" -- you know, a reference to "Love Me Do." But then I realized it was "Love You To." Grr. 

Whatever it is, everyone can agree that the intro is epic. 😀 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I'm glad this was brought up becuase it's one of those little rock & roll mysteries that has not been fully explained. I always interpreted it as Flaming Pie's second offering;"[I'd] Love You To . . ."   

The only problem with that is, it doesn't really fit the lyrics. I will admit the title fits the lyrics better than the original title.

This has always bugged me. Like Zig, I have taken the title as "I'd Love You To" of late, though I used to think someone had missed an "o" off and it was supposed to be "too". I think Joe's explanation is a good one.

I love the song itself. George isn't a great sitarist per se, but he gets a good sound out of it, and the result is a lovely blur. I think George's contributions with guitar and sitar are what makes Revolver so fantastic, and Love You To is a prime example.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I've always pronounced it as Love You Too as well. But I like Joe's explanation. It makes sense. Again George has wording problems along with I Want To Tell You.

It's one of my favorite songs though. I dig the sitar. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I've often wondered where this title came from but I think I got it one day ! a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Listening again and again to Paul's terrific rendition of Larry Williams' "She Said Yeah" on Run Devil Run, a track they used to play in Hamburg in the early days, I was suddenly struck by the last line of the chorus... he he... Just play it again to yourselves, brothers !

I'm pretty sure there is no better explanation than this little disguised tribute to Mr. Williams.
