A Life in the Day

Considering that a couple of lame indie-rock covers of the Beatles' "Hello Goodbye" are currently being heard in TV commercials (car ads, if memory serves?) it seems like a good time to revisit the original.

And while hard-core Beatles fans may already be aware of this, I must confess to being utterly astounded by this alternate video version.



The looks Ringo, whose drum fills are the secret star of both song and video, keeps shooting John are worth the price of admission, aren't they? And poor George doesn't get his own hula dancer.....

Ringo and John together: "Paul? We're laughing at the superior intellect."

Wonder if this was some sort of dress rehersal?

Cool!

To be fair, Paul's bassplaying on this is quite fine too.

Very cool. Inane and insanely catchy song. Such great guitar tones. And Kid C.'s right: killer bass lines. Those little boodoodoodoodoo fills at just the right time. Great stuff.

I found the video for "Hey Bulldog" in the "also" box and loved it, too.
