True swansea, it's a good vibe.



Yeah. Its the best vibe you see from all they're later stuff,
although there are some nice moments between John and Paul during
the rooftop gig.

I love that video because it shows how much John liked that song
when you see him and Paul making eye contact and smiling here and
there. Soppy ol' me!! lol[:I]


WAD (without a doubt), Swanny. I totally agree as well. Along with John's off-rhythm fake guitar strumming. LOL

Hey Jude is just an amazing song...i think every recording of it is incredible. Anthology version, single version, TTLF version, BITUS version....they all take my breath away.

Yes, all the Hey Jude performances are amazing. I'm always amazed watching the original Beatles clip of how complete the performance is - everything's there, the phrasing, the slow build, all the drama. Remarkable given how recently the song had been written at the time.

Contrasts greatly with, say, Long and Winding Road as performed in the Let It Be film. Tentative, hesitant, uncertain.

I guess the contract reflects the change in state of mind / relationships between 1968 and 1969.

I'm sure you'll let me know if you think I'm talking nonsense......[:D]

Remember...HJ was a staged video performance.....LAWR was part of the movie.....hard to explain...and...I'm quite sure they were not getting along THAT well in the summer of 68 as compared to Jan 69.

I see what you're getting at Steve - Hey Jude had an audience - whereas I suppose LAWR was really a filmed rehearsal in the studio...

The Long And Winding Road doesn't compare with Hey Jude.

Hey Jude is one of 4 Paul songs that Paul rests his laurels on.. the others being Let It Be, LAWR and Yesterday...

The BITUS version of HJ is nice... the others not as good overall no live version comes close to touching the recorded version because the screaming vocals during the nananana part cannot be reproduced onstage..
