100 Words or Less: On ‘She Loves You’

The Beatles

Long hailed as one of the Beatles’ and pop music’s greatest songs, fans are often surprised to learn the tune also claims the record for highest number of successful false advertisement lawsuits.

In fact, more than six million separate lawsuits have been successfully brought against the song’s rights-holders by lonely, desperate men who believed “she” had in fact loved them.

Many plaintiffs have stated the lyrics “It’s you she’s thinking of” and “you know you should be glad” were particularly egregious. The standard legal payout amounts to $12.67, about the price of a modest meal for one.
