"Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)" is a song by George Harrison and is the lead track on his 1973 album "Living in the Material World". The song was released as a single in May 1973, hitting number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at the end of June. Harrison's single replaced "My Love" by his former bandmate from The Beatles, Paul McCartney, at the top of the chart, and in turn was replaced at number one by "Will It Go Round in Circles" by Billy Preston, who played with Harrison and McCartney during the sessions for "Let It Be" in 1969.

Cover versions

Jeff Lynne performed this song at the "Concert for George".

Brazilian singer Marisa Monte covered "Give Me Love" on her live album "A Great Noise" (1997) (in her version it included a short piece of Janis Joplin's song "Me and Bobby McGee").

Dave Davies of The Kinks recorded his version of Harrison's song on his "Kinked" album (2006) (although his version was released earlier on "Songs from the Material World - a Tribute to George Harrison" in 2003).

The song was also occasionally performed by Elliott Smith during his concerts.
