Did you notice that when Paul does his song for George ("Something"), all the great photo's of George & Paul together that run on the big screen?  But when he does "Here Today" for John…there are no photo's of the two of them shown together.  Why is that?  :(

Perhaps the idea wouldn't go with the more sombre mood of the performance. The staging is very minimalist during that song.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I did notice that as well. Here Today was also when Paul was alone on that raised platform at the front, which had all of the waterfall graphics on the sides…maybe they didn't want to detract from that? Plus, everyone knows how close he and John were, but he and George certainly had a much more complicated relationship. Still, I do love those Abbey Road session photos of the two of them laughing and smiling while recording some vocals. :)

And to think how clueless I was when I went to the concert back in May. I do remember those sequences during the concert. At least I have a picture of them in my head so now that I know the stories behind them I can appreciate them.

I just loved the pic's of Paul & George…especially the ones of them cracking up…so special! 

That is true, the pic's could have changed the mood of the song & of course, aren't necessary.  I was just curious.  I'm always curious!  a-hard-days-night-paul-11 Annoyingly so sometimes! a-hard-days-night-george-10  I had to laugh because my friend who came with me to the concert said "Yoko probably wouldn't allow it"  She's not much of a Yoko fan!!  yoko-ono_01  a-hard-days-night-george-10

What some people forget is a basic human experience: I'm sure everyone here has had times with a friend when you have a spat, or your relation is strained, or you get mad, or you sulk and pout -- with a strong friendship, it's part of the rhythms of the relationship.  Sure, sometimes it can go on for a  long time, but that's life.  The point is, it's different with a friend than it is when you get mad at a stranger.  That's what the biographer Norman didn't seem to remember when he brought up that scene in the movie "Let It Be" where there is tension between George and Paul thick enough you could cut it with a knife.  When seen from the outside (and from the perspective of a fan looking at famous "celebrities"), there's the temptation to abstract it from the complications of real life.

That said, it would be nice some day for Paul to sing "Two of Us" -- with one slight alteration to "Four of Us".apple01apple01apple01apple01
