They Are All In Love

Piano by Nicky Hopkins.
Originally titled ‘She Loves Everyone’ and recorded on April 30.

[Roger said he refused to sing this song until Pete "clarified certain aspects." Pete’s explanation: "Punks didn’t mean what it does today. Punks is what I used to call the New York fans who used to try and get you by the ears and pin you down and take you home in a cardboard box. The song was about what the band had become. It was about money, about law courts, about lawyers and accountants. Those things had never mattered and the band had a backlog of tax problems and unpaid royalties. We had to deal with it. I really felt like crawling off and dying."]
