This is the intro to The Beatles concert at the 1965 Shea Stadium with their performance of I’m Down. I don’t think I have ever seen the lads so carefree before or after. Paul and Ringo are trying to keep things together while George and John are having the time of their lives. Somehow, George and John keep things together, despite their kidding around and John doing his Jerry Lee Lewis impersonation on the keyboards.
If I had to pick one live video performance of The Beatles, it was this one. Yes, there were more ground breaking songs and the world broadcast of All You Need Is Love, but this video shows four young Scousers riding a crest of a musical wave and lovin’ it!
