Fun with Music

Humorist Dave Barry is one of my regular non-music reads and from time to time he puts up a Beatles video like this one to remind us how good they were. Along with everything else, they just seem to be having such fun making the music and I think that gets across, somehow embedded in the music itself.

The use of tobacco makes this seem like an anthropological documentary of a lost era. It's hard to believe how many people smoked back then, particularly musicians, especially, it seemed, the towering piano players like Horowitz and Rubenstein.
