Okay, one more lost Beatles video. Hilarious– watch John, George and Paul lip synch not very well to “Penny Lane” as they shoot a promo for one of the richest of all Beatles songs. New Beatles fans will be happy to learn that “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever” were recorded for “Sgt. Pepper” but wound up coming out as a standalone double A side single. My favorite version of “Penny Lane” is on Beatles “Rarities” and “Anthology” with extra piccolo at the end.
Hilarious? Really? I used to have swim meets at Penny Lane….love that song.
