"Love You To" is a song by The Beatles from the album Revolver. It is sung and written by George Harrison and features a tabla, an Indian drum played with the hands, as well as a sitar and a tambura drone. Ringo Starr is the only other Beatle playing on the song, shaking a tambourine. It is the only Beatles song completely void of either John Lennon or Paul McCartney. Paul McCartney originally recorded background vocals for the song, but those were left out of the final mix.
It was the first Beatles song that seriously attempted to incorporate classical Indian music. Harrison was learning the sitar from Ravi Shankar, who inspired him to learn more about Indian music and Eastern religion.
The song was another indication of the group's rapidly broadening barriers on Revolver. The opening section, in fact, bears far more relation to traditional Indian music than rock, suddenly exploding into.
