All Together Now” is a song by the Beatles written primarily by Paul McCartney[1][2] and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The song was recorded during the band’s Magical Mystery Tour period, but remained unreleased until it was included on the Yellow Submarinesoundtrack.[3] It was released as a single in 1972 in several European countries, including France and Germany, backed by “Hey Bulldog.”

McCartney described the song as a children’s sing-along with the title phrase inspired by the music hall tradition of asking the audience to join in.[1] He also described a “subcurrent” in the song, a dual-meaning where “we are all together now.”[1] According to music critic Tom Maginnis of Allmusic, McCartney created the song “to match the same light-hearted spirit” of “Yellow Submarine“.[4]“Yellow Submarine”, the song, was from the prior year, 1966.

This song was composed by McCartney for use in the worldwide telecast of the UK segment of “Our World” TV special. “All Together Now” appears in an animated sequence in the film Yellow Submarine, and is also introduced by the Beatles themselves in a final live-action scene of the film, during which translations of “All Together Now” into various languages appear written on-screen (likely a nod to its inception as part of the aforementioned international show segment).

  2. Walkin’ down Memory Lane, John…. George Harrison was my favourite, I had his pictured plastered everywhere in my room! I had boxes of Beatle cards that mother disposed of after she sent me off to boarding school! Amazing the genres they excelled through over the course of their joint career!

      Oh Agnes, I think so many people still enjoy the music of the Beatles and it is great that they continue to have a tremendous following by younger and older people alike!
      Your mother could have sent those cards to me! Never mind – I am pleased to say that the Beatles are awash with so many youtube videos that will go on forever!
      Great stuff and thanks.
      Cheers John

      Hi Michelle
      Many thanks for your comments. I wish to continue The Beatles series – there are some 200 that I am aware of!

      I think The Beatles awaken the memories and emotions of most people because they wrote about real life and the trials and tribulations they went through.
      Most people relate to them if you listen to the words apart from those delicious sounds and harmonies.

      Are you on Facebook as I would like to invite you as a friend.
