I would say then, Mr. Mark, that we have distinctly different opinion as to
exactly, a "riff," is.
The is nothing, musically speaking as a guitarist, that qualifies "All You
Need Is Love"
as even having a "riff," as I have come to know one in the musical terms of
rock and blues and jazz, and the application thereof:
Paperback Writer has a Riff.
Day Tripper has a Riff
Nowhere Man has No Riff
She Loves You has No Riff
All You Need Is Love has No Riff
the rolling stones*
The Last Time has a Riff
(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction has a Riff
Honkey Tonk Women has a Riff
You Can't Always Get What You Want has No Riff
Very very few songs by The Who have traditional "riffs" but:
So Sad About Us has a rhythm Riff.
The Relay has a rhythm Riff.
Pictures of Lily has no Riff.
