Time to do a Videos of the Week and since Sirius XM does “Breakfast with The Beatles” at 9 a.m. on Underground Garage every Sunday, I figured I’d give you some of my all-time favorite songs from my all-time favorite band. Many of these I have posted before, but I will do a countdown from 10 until 1.
Let’s start with number 10 and Penny Lane. This video comes directly from Apple Corp, The Beatles’ own record company so no threat of it being taken down.
From Help!, this is my 9th favorite Beatles song (no, it’s not Revolution No. 9. No. 9. No.9), You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away.
This is from the movie and album, “Let It Be”. The famous rooftop concert on top of Apple Records in London in 1969. This is “I’ve Got A Feeling” at number 8.
Another video directly from the Apple Corp. vaults. “I Am The Walrus” from “Magical Mystery Tour”. This is my 7th favorite song.
At number 6, here’s “Strawberry Fields Forever”. Great song.
These are The Beatles performing “Hey Jude” on The David Frost Show at number 5. Note the Al Franken look-a-like at 4:23.
At number 4, this is a live performance of “All You Need Is Love” for the first ever live global satellite link. If you saw “The Beatles Anthology”, you’ll know that it was broadcast to 26 countries and 400 million people watching live.
Number 2 is Here Comes the Sun. George Harrison is performing this song live. I believe this performance is from the Concert for Bangladesh.
Finally, my all-time favorite song from The Beatles is “Let It Be”.
So to recap, my all-time Top 1o in reverse order is:
10. Penny Lane
9. You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away.
8. I’ve Got A Feeling
7. I Am The Walrus
6. Strawberry Fields Forever
5. Hey Jude
4. All You Need Is Love
2. Here Comes The Sun
1. Let It Be
I hope you enjoyed my version of Breakfast with The Beatles.
