Can anyone remember an airing of the "Strawberry Fields" clip on TV (maybe Bandstand?) where the host asks two kids in the audience, a boy and a girl, what they think of the "new" Beatles. The girl responds "Boy they've changed and I don't really like it..." while the boy says something like "I think it's the greatest thing I've ever seen!" Would love to see that clip if anyone knows where to find it. Thought it was on the Anthology, but I couldn't locate it. Thanks!


Wow. That's one for the "Faux Paul" crowd. Did you notice that everytime the words "...nothing is real" were sung, they did a close-up on Paul... Coinkidink? I think not!

No, this is not a live performance––you wouldn’t have been able to hear ‘em over the screams. Instead, the Beatles showed two short promo films for their latest songs, “Penny Lane,” and “Strawberry Fields Forever.” These are basically music videos before there were music videos, and they’re mildly trippy and psychedelic. As usual, the host doesn’t know how to respond to them, though the girls in the audience do. A blast from the 60s.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.


Doug: I remember seeing that clip. It was aired as a part of an ABC special about the Beatles several years ago and, yes, not on the Anthology series.
