Up on the iPlayer for another three days. The greatest jukebox movie ever made is 50 years old.

Watching now. I have seen it at least twice before over my 50 years but there's been a long enough gap to find it entertaining. The Beatles had such a great natural energy between themselves - I'd be interested in finding out if the script was based on hanging out with them on tour or the writer simply inventing a Beatles movie - or the band improvising on set? I tink HDN is my favourite Beatles recording ever, such a great sound and dynamic. They never sounded as good again - Help has its moment but Rubber Soul is deadly dull and Revolver is an awful mish mash. But as a cheeky r&r band there's nothing better than A Hard Day's Night.

Yes, it was written by Alun Owen after hanging out with the Fabs on tour. They took the piss out of him mercilessly for his fake Scouseries.

For a long time the first album was my favourite but these days I tend towards "A Hard Day's Night" myself. But don't forget the word now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpMSIgvrFT8
