With a little help! A new Beatles video clip is released of band's cover of Buddy Holly's Words of Love

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

It’s been over forty years since the Beatles recorded their last music video. But a previously unseen clip of a cover of Words of Love by Buddy Holly is set to delight and intrigue fans. The video was recorded live at the BBC Radio studios a year before the band released the song on the album Beatles for Sale.

The video, which mixes psychedelic animations with black-and-white footage, features the Fab Four as they perform on stage and in the recording studio. The boys are seen driving in a van through the countryside, in the city and and watching fireworks, with a glimpse of the Queen Mother. The video also evokes Beatlemania, with screaming fans and a girl passing out after glimpsing her idols. She also reveals that she used to take the band's castoff clothing to give to fans. She said: 'I didn't steal them but if a shirt was ripped and they didn't want it, I'd go round there and take it. I'd always say to Louise Harrison [George's mother] 'Can I have that?' and I'd just cut the shirts up and send them out.'
