The Beatles: Last Seen On TV 40 Years AgoSeptember 9, 2008 at 10:32 pm | Posted in Music, Television | 3 Comments
Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the last television appearance made by The Beatles together before things went (to quote Dr. Sam Beckett) “a little caca”. I’ll just copy and paste some blah-blah from the Wired blog:
“It’s amazing to think that it has been 40 years since The Beatles last appeared on television, or released what I would argue is their best effort, The Beatles, also known as The White Album. (That particular anniversary is Nov. 22.) And it’s even more amazing to think generations have grown up not really knowing much about the band. Even so, The Beatles will remain the greatest pop band to ever live, until someone comes and takes the crown [Oasis anyone?- Ed, or Ped even– I like it. What I don’t like is when editors chime in for no reason]. One can’t help but think that will be a long wait, indeed.”
After the break is are the two songs Hey Jude and Revolution. Some things I’ve noticed about the following clips are:
- Nobody in the audience had any sense of rhythm
- The live music fades out
- Paul McCartney is trying to seduce the cameraman
- There are a lot of pissed off people in the audience.
