Tonight is a night of contrast between 1965 and 2008.
Peter and Gordon had a string of Top 40 hits from 1964 to 1967. Their first, A World Without Love, was written by Paul McCartney under a pseudonym. McCartney wanted to know if he could write a number one hit that stood on its own merits rather than because it happened to be by The Beatles.
The careers of Peter and Gordon weren’t hurt by the fact that Paul dated Peter’s sister, Jane Asher. Peter can be seen in a number of Beatles television performances, including Hey Jude and All You Need is Love.
Take a peek below the fold at Peter and Gordon performing A World Without Love in 1965 — and 2008. Remember, someday the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus will look like this.
