Places In Beatles Songs

I found this video which shows the places what the Beatles have in their songs.
For example, Penny Lane is a real place of course, so it gets a mention.
Strawberry Fields was a real place so that gets a mention too.
So from places in Liverpool, London, Europe, India and America, the video plots them.

Its a very clever video but is not really complete as a few places are missing which is a shame really.
Also, the makers didn't do their homework so they show the wrong barber shop in Penny Lane.
Because the video is really clever, maybe the film makers will correct it at a later date as it is a class idea.
Anyway, take a look and see what you think.

That is a great video even with the missing places. I hope the maker goes back to the drawing board and corrects things. 8/10 for the effort.

Its a clever video but if its inaccurate they should correct it.
The proper barber shop is visited by Paul McCartney in his carpool video here.
Good video but needs proper research.

I watched this video last night so here's my take on it :mrgreen:
Good video, very entertaining and informative but with the few inaccuracies in it, the video is slightly out and should be done again.
I reckon the film maker put a lot of time into it but at the end of the day we need facts.
Good, but I won't watch it again unless it has got the proper corrections.
For example I could post a video and say this is The Beatles singing 'She Loves You', then when it plays it is 'I Am The Walrus'.
5/10 from me, sorry.

A brilliant idea spoilt by a lack of detail.
Fingers crossed that they redo this video.
Very well put together though.

They are aware of what is wrong with the video so we will see if it gets a correction or two.
