I forgot how funny and clever that movie was.

A Hard Day’s Night, I mean. Opted to watch it again today after that interview. Damned good movie. It must have taken critics by surprise back then who were probably watching for a fairly dull, bubblegum boy-band piece of junk and instead got something quite clever and fun. It ages well. And the music of course is fantastic. Those guys had a hell of an ear for interesting chord progressions.

And once again, I can be a jaded middle-aged curmudgeon by saying how nice it is to hear a band that plays its instruments, writes its own music, and wears pants that fit.
