Song Of The Week - The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
A new look at an old favourite. This newly released video is with us to highlight the 10th anniversary restaging of Cirque du Soleil’s Beatles piece, LOVE. As such, this features George Martin’s re-orchestrated take on George Harrison’s acoustic version of the song – i.e. no Clapton, from the decade old album of the same show, which marked the late Martin’s final time in the studio. The video is directed by Dandypunk, André Kasten and Leah Moyer, and is almost as beautiful as the song itself.
Need a new movie connection? Laika’s latest, Kubo and the Two Strings, has been using an instrumental version of the song on their trailers so far.
Hit “Play” already. Damn!
