"Window In The Skies"/"Free As A Bird" @ 04:47 pm

walrusoct9:
I'm currently hearin: Hem - "Funnel Cloud"

Any Beatles fans here think the second "Window In The Skies" video looks an awful lot like the 1995 promo video for the Beatles' "Free As A Bird"?  

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as the "Free As A Bird" video was probably the best thing about that song, but the similarities are striking.  The FAAB video was produced by Vincent Joliet and directed by Joe Pytka...I can't find any mention on the U2 sites as to who did the second "Window" video, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was the same guys.

Totally, I'm not even a Beatles fan, but when I saw it for the first time the first thing that came to mind was "hey! isn't there a beatles video just like this one?"

It's still cool though, but I still like the other one better, trying to spot U2 in the middle of the crowd is tons of fun lol

I love "Free As A Bird." I insist on including it in any "Best of Beatles" mix.

I agree! what else for you must be on a Beatles mix?

I'm partial to George Harrison, so there's a lot of his material included. I love his solo stuff too.

I also love the medley from the end of "Abbey Road."

It is similar, but I still like it... both of them, actually. I hadn't seen the "Free As A Bird" video in years, and about 2 weeks ago some kids pulled it up in a class I was in and I remembered it. Good stuff.

I just got U218 for Christmas, and after hearing it through for the first time, my wife and I both came to the conclusion that "Window in the Skies" is U2's Beatles song. So, to us, it makes sense that the video is like "Free as a Bird". :)
