"..kept awake on coffee and dreams of The Beatles"
I've just discovered the wonders of YouTube. And what a place it is, to get my Beatles video fix! There are plenty of crappy home videos to navigate through, but a careful choice of keywords can throw up wonderful search surprises. My favourite tags are: "beatles", "sixties", "60s", to name a few. Unfortunately the videos can only be streamed, but I would say the quality is not bad. And did I mention that membership is free?
Some videos I've enjoyed:
The Mersey Sound - Complete 1/2 hour documentary that aired on BBC in 1963, when no one knew yet if The Beatles would last.
Beatles Are Too Sexy - Beatles video clips edited to the sound of "I'm Too Sexy". A must watch! I don't care if it's cheesy.
The Beatles' Help! Intertel Video - I was actually going to post this same video, then I saw it already available here. Though the audio is not synched properly, the video just makes me smile.
Eight Days A Week (cartoon) - This appears to be a clip from their cartoon series.
Francoise Hardy & Jane Birkin, "Comment Te Dire Adieu" - There's more than just The Beatles.
