A Day In The Life Video
« on: February 17, 2015, 08:28:57 AM »

From Wogblog:

The Beatles just uploaded the full 5:21 music video of "A Day In The Life" to YouTube.

Previously, The Beatles have just uploaded snippets of their music videos to YouTube, except they did actually upload the full "Real Love" video in December. The new upload is only available in a resolution of 480p, so it's not as if it's in a quality that compares with a DVD, but still - could it be a foretaste of an upcoming music video collection?
The upload of "A Day In The Life" celebrates the anniversary of the orchestra overdub session of the song, which happened on the 10th of February, 1967. The video has a 2013 copyright notification at the end.

Apple missed an opportunity to really go to town for the various 50th Anniversaries (we'd already be nearing 'Ticket to Ride' and 'Help!') but it's good to know that they're diligently marking the 48th Anniversaries!

Quick thought: Given the world domination of the other (lesser) Apple are the real Apple 'encouraged' to keep a low profile?

It is their best video. And it has more in it than at first glance. The video images follow the acutal lyrics.
0:26-0:35 - although the news was rather SAD - well I just had to LAUGH - John is sad (or better to say, he has serious face) in contrast with girl smiling. Also, there is Paul laughing at: 0:32-0:33.
0:39-0:43 I SAW the photograph... - At 0:39, George looks and goes very close to the camera.
0:51 - 0:55 he didn't notice that the LIGHTS were changed... - a closeup of an eye (for 'NOTICE' - you notice things mostly with your eyes), and then changing the lights in the studio.
0:57 - 1:01 - a crowd of people stood and stare - camera shows people in sthe studio standing (and looking at the camera - so, there you have 'staring').
1:11 - 1:17 - I saw a FILM today, oh boy - John (and others) have a film camera in their hands.
1:18 - 1:23 - the English army had just won the war - children RUNNING with guns in their hands, one of them falls to the ground. Also, a shot of policemen in the street. There is no way that this footage is put accidentally with those lines about war. Plus, the footage is of different colour than the rest of the video (a reference to old times when they had black&white photos and footage,)
1:24 - 1:29 - a crowd of people TURN AWAY - girls being escorted out of the set (I assume, this is staged).
1:30 - 1:33 - but I just had to LOOK - a shot of the eye.
2:16 - 2:20- before the lines 'Woke up, fell out of bed' there is a shot of Big Ben and the camera shakes whis looks to viewers as an earthquake - which all, actually, represents the Big Ben as an 'alarm clock' (we hear the alarm clock in the song. Next, Paul is shown in the shot - and that is his par of the song (his lyrics!).
2:28 - find my way DOWNSTAIRS and drank a cup - camera shot from UP angle to DOWNSTAIRS (at the musicians) - bird's eye perspective.
2:32 - 2:34 - and LOOKING UP I noticed I was late - a shot of the eye. Aslo, man looking at the camera.
2:36 - 2:38 - found my coat and grabbed my HAT - a shot of man, next to Paul with something on his head.
2:38 - 2:42 - made the bus in SECONDS FLAT - first, a slow-motin shot of RIngo, then a fast movement of camera in slo-mo.
2:42 - 2:46 - find my way UPSTAIRS - a shot of musicians from up.
2:46 - 3:18 - somebody spoke and I went to a DREAM - could represent a dreaming sequence.
3:37 - 3:38 - not a reference to lyrics, but there is a zoom to woman's chest (that is, to the glittery blouse she's wearing). Also, At 3:38 ther is a shot of a musician with a
big, funny fake nose. Could be a funny sexual reference.
3:44 - 3:48 I'd love to TURN YOU ON - a woman turning around.
4:39 4:01 - a record being played. I think it reads 'Donovan', Probably a dedication to music - people then listened music either on radio or on the records.
3:50 - 4:10 a fast movement of the camera, which follows the musical cressendos.
4:22 - 5:12 - slow-motion 'follows' the final chord.
