Which movie scene where the boys are singing is your favorite?

Not sure if I should count it so I'm getting it out of the way, I love the rooftop concert in Let It Be.

(Some of) My favorites
You're Going To Lose That Girl* from Help!
A Hard Day's Night from AHDN
Flying from MMT is quite interesting
If I Fell from AHDN
Another Girl from Help!

I love 'em all, but those are some favorites! What are yours?

*I accidentally put You've Got To Hide You're Love Away for anyone who saw that. I love that scene too but meant Lose That Girl.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Nice thread!

Well my favourite would definitely be Ticket To Ride from HELP! 

I watched that scene over and over again. I really don't know why but I just love it.

 

Edit: I forgot "I should have known better" in AHDN!!! Just love that part!

From MMT, 'I Am The Walrus' and 'Your Mother Should Know' because they are so elaborate.

From AHDN, 'And I Love Her' because of its simplicity.

There's a certain type of song from A Hard Day's Night and Help! that fills me with a good feeling, a little bittersweet but good overall.  I can't quite pinpoint exactly what it is about them and this je ne sais quoi is augmented by watching them in the movies:

A Hard Day's Night

I Should Have Known Better

I’m Happy Just To Dance With You

Can’t Buy Me Love

Things We Said Today

Help!

Help!

The Night Before

I Need You

You’re Going To Lose That Girl

Ticket To Ride

I Need You from Help! as we get to see a 'performance' of it even tho it is just mimed - love that song.

MMT's I Am The Walrus as every time i see it its better than i remember it to be.

John and Paul rocking the fast Two of Us in LIB.

I plan to have a Beatles movie day where I just watch all of their movies (and maybe some of the documentaries I have) sometime but I think my favourites would be:

A Hard Day's Night

Can't Buy Me Love

Ticket To Ride

I Need You

Blue Jay Way (for some unknown reason)

I Am The Walrus

Your Mother Should Know

It's All Too Much (if it counts)

And of course The Rooftop Concert, that's just savage!

 

There are far too many on this list, I should narrow it down but nah

I was thinking I Am The Walrus so I'm adding that to my list, I momentarily forgot about the Your Mother Should Know scene so I'm adding that, and I left out The Night Before because I thought the list was too long so I'm sneaking it in now... No one will notice...

This is why I try to avoid favorite threads because I love them all so much! I'm stopping my list here even if I forgot something!!

Oh yeah ahdn_george_06 and... And I Love Her... Love the way it's filmed, especially the shot of the screen in the control room...

NOW Im done! Promise!

I just realized that this probably belongs in Yesterday and Today, so if a mod could move it there it would be appreciated! apple01

A Hard Day's Night. I mean, c'mon, that opening is legendary.

Ticket To Ride. Because it's fun.

I Am The Walrus.

Your Mother Should Know.

Blue Jay Way. For some strange reason, like a few other people already said as well.

A Hard Day's Night:

[Ringo finds the theatre's fire escape]

Ringo: We're out!

[Can't Buy Me Love plays as the Beatles run out the fire escape and play in a field. As the song ends, an angry-looking man confronts the Beatles.]

Man: I suppose you realize this is private property!

George: Sorry we hurt your field mister!

I see a couple of people mentioninig "Blue Jay Way"...that one kinda embarrasses me. Bits of it do, in a weird way. There's an awkwardness to those shots of George sitting there, lip-syncing and occasionally looking into the camera while playing his imaginary organ. It looks to me like he'd really rather not be there.

"Another Girl" isn't as celebrated as "Can't Buy Me Love" but I think it's equally fantastic. Practically every shot has something funny or spectacular or merely interesting happening in it, both in the montage and the mise-en-scène. (#talkingoutmyass)

Yeah those bits are a bit weird. I personally like it for the backyard bits.

I thought George was a bit under the influence when doing the organ playing in Blue Jay Way.

The most memorable part of Another Girl when Paul accidently touches the young ladies boob as he pretends she's a guitar and gets the shock of his life. His reaction is priceless.

Under the influence of what? And Paul practically went flying head over fist in shock!
