"I Dig Love" is a song by English rock musician George Harrison from his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. A paean to free love, it marks a departure from the more profound, spiritually oriented subject matter of much of that album. Musically, the song reflects Harrison's early experimentation with slide guitar, a technique that he was introduced to while touring with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends in December 1969.

Typically of much of the material on All Things Must Pass, the recording features an extended line-up of musicians, including three guitarists, two drummers and three keyboard players. Among the musicians were former Delaney & Bonnie band members Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock and Dave Mason, along with Billy Preston and Ringo Starr. The track was co-produced by Phil Spector and recorded in London. On release, it was among the album's most popular songs on US radio. Given the high standard of Harrison's songwriting on All Things Must Pass, however, several of his biographers have since held "I Dig Love" in low regard and consider it to be one of the album's weakest tracks.
