Free As A Bird - references
« on: September 07, 2005, 08:25:24 AM »

I found this link in a Dutch Beatlesforum (beatlesfanclub.nl). It is about the references to other Beatles songs in the video of Free As A Bird. I thought it's interesting.

What do you reckon the man and dog represent near the very end?

Ufff... who knows? A reference to the Moondogs and the theatres at the very begining? Paul playing solo his Yesterday? George's love for ukelele? ??) ??)

Not sure about the dog. I am sure I heard an explanation many moons ago.

It ties in with the tune...George was a member of the George Formby appreciation society. I know someone who taught George some Uke.

Is it The Liverpool Empire?
