I went to the DU Lounge to post this. Then I remembered that some things transcend entertainment, and timing is everything.

And the only outlet in the USA to play it? The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Of course. And that intro follows. Enjoy tonight, and tomorrow, as well. Peace.

And the intro, and this was one of the best shows ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZMEcAdOI-c&feature=rela...

2. It's a close call which Rock and Roll event I would have rather attended
This one or the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus.

4. Yeah, that would be a tough call.
But then the Beatles were only lip-syncing on TV, and Lennon played live at the Rock n Roll Circus.

5. It's the running around the set and standing next to John.
That would put Hey Jude over the edge.

6. I'd have to go with R&R Circus
The Who kicked some serious butt at that show, among other things.

3. Thanks for posting that. It was great to see it again.
The Beatles were such an important part of my young life from when I first heard them when I was in the 6th grade all the way through high school. Music is like a time machine that can take you back to the moment when you first heard a song.

You know, I've seen this many times and now I really wonder if it was actually live or lip-synched because when Paul plays the piano, even on the close ups of his hands, I cannot see the keys go down. I also think at this time that none of them had a lot of confidence in their musical ability to perform live. There is such a moment though about 1:25 in when Paul plays the four notes on the piano: do, do, do--do and there is a close up of his hands that you cannot see the keys go down. No matter what, it was a great moment in musical history and even now when Paul does the song in concert you can see even guys in their 50s crying as they sing along and I can understand the feeling.

10. Then there was this one:
All You Need Is Love

I say "then," but it was about a year earlier.

12. Thanks.
I think "Hey Jude" is Paul's best song, and it represents a big part of that year. But the flip side of the 45 is outstanding, too. It's one of John's most important songs. I like the two, together.
