It's on "The First Visist DVD" - the one that was only released last week. There's a scene in their hotel room where John is playing what looks like a small flute with a tiny keyboard attached. He is working on the opening chords (the part that was later played by Paul on the Mellotron keyboard. I couldn't believe it when I heard that - I mean, that was filmed about 3 years before The Beatles started their studio recording of it!

It's only a short clip though unfortunately![/quote]

What? I've seen that part, but which song are you talking about?

Penny Lane is a very good song, capturing the feel of an area of Liverpool well known to the Beatles.

Strawberry Fields is a masterpiece, capturing the mood of Lennon's mind as he looks inward.

If there were a fight between 'strawberry fields'  and 'Penny Lane'  Strawberry would win.
But john and paul's songs are not designed to compete with each others. They are here
to make us feel good.

Having said that, 'Strawberry Fields'  all the way.

Strawberry Fields is the better song, but I like Penny Lane better. Does that even make sense?

 I'm going with Strawberry. I really like Penny Lane, but it tends to wear thin on me after awhile. Strawberry always captivates me because of its beautiful strangeness (get what I mean by that?) and unbelievably brilliant lyrics. I also like the atmosphere and production of the song, though the demos and other versions I have heard are magnificent. I just like that it's heavy and the words are so "out there". I love this song. I consider it one of the highest ever achievements the Beatles made- and that's saying a lot.

Both tracks make my Top Ten....both are probably in my Top Five even, but I'd give the slight edge to Strawberry Fields Forever as it's a bit more whimsical.
