Music Video of the Day: Paperback Writer by The Beatles (1966, dir by Michael Lindsay-Hogg)


This is my second favorite Beatles song, right after A Day In The Life.  I think the reason I like this song is because it feels like it could have been written about so many different people who I know.  According to Wikipedia, this song was written as the result of Paul McCartney’s aunt daring him to write a song that wasn’t a love song.  (Of course, Paperback Writer is kind of a love song.  It’s the story of an author who loves money enough to write a dirty story about a dirty man.)

This video was filmed outside of the Chiswick House in London.  Michael Lindsay-Hogg went on to direct the Beatles’s final film, Let It Be.

Enjoy!
