I know this video is simply a fan’s mashup, but wow is it impressive. There are so many rumors flying around about this track. Will it be released? Won’t it be released? Will there be George’s guitar work on this one? Will the Beatle crew go back and use archived audio? Anyway, you guys get the idea.
Why this track was never completed around the time of The Anthology is a question that may never be completely answered. There were some technical issues. There were issues of not all being in agreement on the song. Whatever the reason. I still think you cannot deny the fact that this would have been on of JohnLennon’s most beautiful and haunting songs.
Personally, I cannot wait to see what the Beatle team does with it. If it is half as good as this (weird) fan mashup, then I can’t imagine what professionals will do with it. Enjoy!
