Week 26 Video Playlist

This week is unusual is that only Lennon’s Beautiful boy is a themed video and given it is just his personal family videos it does not really qualify for any artistic praise (although still quite touching). In terms of the other videos of each band I guess I must go with the Beatles as this is such iconic footage. Also quite funny seeing John Lennon miss coming in on vocals in the second verse which starts “Hey Jude, don’t let me down”. At about 2:46 minutes Paul McCartney is trying to catch John Lennon’s eye and at 2:48 you see John query and shake his head. In the third verse he is constantly looking across and John and then breaks out with a little smile as John harmonises with him in the third verse as planned.

If you hover your mouse over the top right of this video window, you will see a button. Clicking on this icon will bring up the full play list of videos and you can scroll down to select whichever one you to play.

My Video Summary

If you click on the Playlist Video for Week 26 (top right of this page) you will be taken to a single video which allows you to play each song in this week's list one after the other. Alternatively, if you watch my own video summary below of this week's songs at the end of the video two playlist links will appear. The one on the left hand side will take you to the video playlist for this week while the one on the right will take you to a single video playlist that allows you to play the complete Covid Island Discs collection for all the currently completed weeks so far — well over 200 songs and counting!
