Welcome, ladies and gentleman, horses and fleas. Tonight’s show is brought to you by the Shumard Red Oak, native to Arkansas and Texas east of Fort Worth. We have on in our front yard, though it’s a replacement tree and is not yet mature.
Here are The Beatles, performing “Hey, Jude” from the David Frost show in 1968.The introductory portion of the clip was filmed at Twickenham Studios, which Frost visited early in the day to make it appear as if the Beatles were actually on the show. The Beatles performed semi-live, over-dubbing live vocals over the pre-recorded studio version of the song. This version is allegedly an edit of takes 1 and 3.
Both John and George believed that Paul had written the song with them in mind.
Note at 2:47 how John forgets to come in with a backup vocal. John and Paul acknowledge this with a laugh, then continue the performance. John was well-known from his teenage years for forgetting the words to songs.
