Beatles on your screen

Tonight I finally received my Beatles stereo package, which included a DVD with short documentaries on each album. I was reminded of the wonderful proto-videos the band churned out in the 60s, ranging from sequences in their features to stand-alone promotional films designed specifically for a certain single. So here are my favorites. (Granted, I'm not quite sure "Rain" was actually created in the 60s; methinks it was perhaps concocted out of outtakes from their "Paperback Writer" promo-film for the '96 Anthology series. Still, it's pretty sick, and is thusly included.)



"Can't Buy Me Love" from A Hard Day's Night (1964)


"Rain" (1966)


"Strawberry Fields Forever" (1967)


"I am the Walrus" from Magical Mystery Tour (1967)


"Eleanor Rigby" from Yellow Submarine (1968)


"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" from Yellow Submarine (1968)

No, I take it back ... it looks like Lennon's definitely mouthing the words to "Rain."

Even better!
