The Beatles Love Songs

About The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band made up of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. They were formed in 1960, and their career lasted just a decade. At that time, the Beatles literally changed the sound of modern music forever.

With McCartney and Lennon as the principal songwriters, the Beatles combined elements of classical music and 1950s rock and roll to create songs of great lyrical and musical depth. Guitarist George Harrison also contributed a few songs that helped to identify him as the best musician in the group.

It is unlikely that anyone will ever match the overall success and influence of the Beatles. The group still holds Guinness world records in many different categories.

Songs That Are Also Vows (The Beatles Edition)

The works of Shakespeare have transcended their time and place and are still performed over 400 years later. It has been argued that the music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, while still The Beatles, is the pop music equivalent, destined to be remembered and performed for hundreds of years to come. The melodies are iconic and lush and, with over 200 original songs recorded by the band, there are quite a few with lyrics that echo or flat-out mirror your vows to one another.

Another plus to utilizing any one of these songs is that, with a singer and an acoustic guitar, each can be performed intimately and in contrast to the bombast of the ceremony making your vows stand out by being beautifully understated. If you want someone to listen, say it softly.

“I Will”
Released in 1968 on the album The Beatles

A Paul McCartney masterpiece at just under two minutes, there is something remarkably sweet and moving about this brief piece that says everything that is needed to be said.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

“When I’m Sixty-Four”
Released in 1967 on the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

The promise of forever is slightly unrealistic but the brilliance of this remarkable song is that it gives a specific age to shoot for. How lovely to think about the twilight years and the idea of the two of you still waking up to one another “when you’re sixty-four.”

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four

“Two of Us”
Released in 1970 on the album Let It Be

At the end of the day, once all the toasts have been made and the dances danced, the next morning will dawn on just the two of you. You will be home and you will be home to each other.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches

“Here, There and Everywhere”
Released in 1966 on the album Revolver

Often vows are less than a list of promises and instead a declaration of the belief that “love never dies.” This is the song that declares undying love perfectly.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching their eyes and hoping I’m always there

“In My Life”
Released in 1965 on the album Rubber Soul

Perhaps your engagement has been longer than anticipated or the road to the altar has been rocky. You’re here, now and the reflection upon the breadth of your time together, slowing ascending to this moment in time is worth gazing at for a minute. One of John Lennon’s most extraordinary compositions, the lyrics encapsulate the whole of your experience together.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

“Something”
Released in 1969 on the album Abbey Road

As much a tribute to the bride as a promise of lifelong fidelity and adoration, this piece tries to explain that you each have an elusive quality that only the other can truly see and appreciate.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You both know what you want to say to one another on your day but “a little help from your friends” is the best way to get by.

I hope you liked our special list of wedding vow songs in the style of The Beatles.
