"I Live For You" is a song by George Harrison originally recorded during the sessions for his All Things Must Pass album in 1970. The song was not issued on the original album because Harrison felt they didn't have a good enough take. In 2000, Harrison and his team fiddled around with the drum track, and "hopefully improved it". The song was released as a bonus track for the 2001 re-release of All Things Must Pass.
Given Harrison's deeply-held religious views, one could interpret the lyrics as expressing a spiritual devotion. However, like several of Harrison's compositions, the lyrics lend themselves equally to being interpreted as a love song.
All Things Must Pass is a triple album by George Harrison, recorded and released after the break-up of The Beatles. The first triple album by a solo artist, the original vinyl release featured two LPs of rock songs, while the third LP, titled "Apple Jam", was composed of informal jams led by Harrison with musician friends and famous musicians.
It was eventually certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA, making it the highest selling of any Beatle solo album.
In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked All Things Must Pass #437 on its list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time"
