Some rarities for y'all here. Footage from the LA and London premieres of Concert for George featuring Paul and Ringo, the wives and widows, Dhani, and a few of the other musicians who partook in the concert.

in various short footages showing Dhanni and his mom Olivia, I got the sense that Olivia was rather cool to Dhanni -- as when, for example, he's offering his viewpoint to the guy interviewing them, she looks straight ahead with a prim grin, with no non-verbal signs of encouragement (you know, signs that ordinary humans show and know).

A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,

a coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news...

Probably the oddest interview collaboration I've ever read, Pattie and Taylor Swift. T-Swizzle's photos are obviously stylised on Pattie. There's nothing interesting or note-worthy in it but I thought I'd post it for the sake of it.

 

Pattie is looking as gorgeous as ever.

I didn't even know she had a thread, so I've sorry from not posting it in your thread SPB.

If I could have put money on it, I would've thought our incredibly-missed @Mr. Kite must have set it up but apparently he never got around to it.

Lads it's been 4 months since we last posted here. What are we up to?

 

Anyhoo, I was doing out a project on anti-vaxxers in German and I realised how unnervingly quiet my room was so I decided to put on some George because while I love the man, I do not listen to him a 1/4 as much as I should do.

So, here's the current song playing (along with its cute video):

 

 

To try and bring some life back into this thread, here's a question.

 

You are tasked with introducing a person to George's solo career but you can only use one song. Which song would it be and why?

I know it's sacrilege for me to post in this thread, but mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I'd probably choose What Is Life. It sums up (at least a large portion of) his career quite nicely, and is a damn catchy song to get someone hooked on!

Never 'This Is Love' is open to any and all fans of George (even if you just know My Sweet Lord ....although I would deem that sacrilege).

 

What do you think of the video for WIL, that was made a few years ago?

Lol fair enough. 

The music video is ok. It's not the worst idea for a music video I've ever seen, but it is better than Blue Jay Way

My dad quite likes it. 

What about you?

How dare you?!? Get off this thread!!

I thought it was alright, I haven't seen it in a good while but if I remember correctly the dancers in it are from the San Francisco ballet. The way the girl is dancing in the 1st half is not a good advertisement for the San Fran ballet ahdn_george_08, I get she's trying to do it in a childish way but mygod it's so sloppy. 

Apart from that, pretty setting and lighting. I do have a mild soft-spot for alvar0rtega's submission, even if it is a tad bit creepy. It made it to the semi-finals though which was a great achievement for him.

Another question: What's George's best music video?

I haven't had the time to watch them all yet but of the ones I've seen I might have to say This Song.

One of those. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 The one he did for 'True Love' is also hilarious. Basically any of the ones with George and Monty Python. Though of course 'When We Was Fab' is amazing too, and I have a soft spot for 'This Is Love'.

All of them are great contenders - I'd say George doesn't have a definitive best music video tbh, but I consider Ding Dong Ding Dong my personal favourite.ahdn_george_08

I've posted this before but for some of you young'uns who haven't seen it. The glorious Weird Al "interview" with Georgie-boy. 

Al is a big George fan, and Dhani's friend- he played at George Fest in 2016. He also "did" an interview with Paul which is nowhere near as good as George's.

 

And my favourite George video is Got My Mind... (Version 2, I don't particularly care for Version 1), that pure pisstake scene with the body double doing the dance breakdown and back-flip is absolute perfection.
