I watched a bit of the first episode of The Beatles: Get Back, until Paul actually creates the song Get Back.
It happens in the morning and it’s so awesome to see his mind work around his bassline, repeating the line, finding a quick melody on top, then words. He knows he has something and wants it, chipping away.
I’m not a Beatles fan but I imagine this must feel so great to see the creative process when you are one.
It makes me want to see the same quality footage of recording of albums or hot R&B #1 songs from the Isley Brothers, Parliament, Erykah Badu, Dilla or Midnight Star. Man, I wish I could see that stuff. There’s probably some footage here and there but nothing like the Beatles have.
