Great vid for a great song. If the 2 Sirs will pardon the derail...

So many breathtaking moments in that video, but I'll only list my 3 faves;

  • Paul's University of Arizona (Linda went there) sweatshirt at 6:08
  • Linda in the studio - we know Flaming Pie was the last album on which she sang
  • George Martin dancing in the control room during playback

Back on the rail, I love Sir Ringo's drumming and his final spoken bits at the end. I must listen to that album again - one of my favorites.


The following people thank Zig for this post:

Beatlebug, Leppo, WeepingAtlasCedars

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

If you haven't seen it yet, here's the footage from when Ringo was knighted the other day by Prince William, as well as a quick interview afterwards:
