EVERYBODY LOVE ME. AKA - "A' Body Loo's Me," "Everybody Loves Me." Scottish, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in the Drummond Castle Manuscript (in the possession of the Earl of Ancaster at Drummond Castle), inscribed "A Collection of the best Highland Reels written by David Young, W.M. & Accomptant" (1734, 73r, No. 22). The manuscript is sometimes called the Duke of Perth Manuscript after its dedicatee.
The parts of the reel are irregular, the first strain having four measures and the second strain six measures. Young also entered the tune in his later manuscripts, The MacFarlane Manuscript (c. 1740, No. 180, p. 231) and the Young-Bodleian Manuscript (c. 1740, 6, f. 10), but with the title variant "A' Body Loo's Me."
