The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Revolver with the digital release of the video for “Eleanor Rigby” – revisit the album now: http://smarturl.it/thebeatlesrevolver

Released as a double A-side with the song “Yellow Submarine in August 1966, Eleanor Rigby marked a giant leap forward in the way that The Beatles thought about their art, following their exploration of new and more complex musical ideas such as “Day Tripper” and “Paperback Writer”. Written and performed by Paul McCartney as part of the Revolver sessions, this features a string composition from George Martin that helped to change the way that people considered “pop music”.

The film is a sequence originally used in the movie Yellow Submarine”, released in July 1968. With it’s surreal, ground-breaking visuals it both brought a new concept of creating a visual video to accompany a song and also ushered in a new style of animation which helped to inspire Terry Gilliam’s animations for the TV comedy series, Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
