Wanted to share this as it is my favourite Beatles live video. Everytime i see it it makes me smile. Most folks go to the Shea performance for the fun factor. This shows that sometimes you do need to prepare.

 

(Apologies if this is in the wrong place but i couldnt find anywhere to put it. More apologies if someone else posted it elsewhere. Even more apologies if this controvenes a house rule. Feel free to move, delete, edit as appropriate.)

What I like about that video is how John tells Paul the lyrics... and how they just enjoy the music. George is hot there. a-hard-days-night-george-8

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie……

Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower…

Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go.

Good find!

Fun to see them confused (at least imho they look confused - yeah, with John whispering the lyrics) and have a good laugh.

The echo is wicked (or is it the recording?) Some of the lyrics seem to come forth before Paul even sings them.

[Amazing to think that this song was recorded in the studio during the same session as "Yesterday "

To me that speaks volumes about the breadth of the Beatles' talent]

I think the vocals are slighty out sync with the music. Its good to see the band enjoying themselves for once as at times on stage in '66 they looked so bored.

John gave Paul the first line and he still flubbed it by singing the second verse first!

Note to Paul: you know you're in trouble when Ringo laughs at you for not remembering the lyrics. It shows how much their stage show had deteriorated by that date.

Still, a great find on the video. Thanks for sharing it.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
