The Beatles’ Last Song


The Beatles have released what is their final, absolute last song, “Now and Then.”


Like a lot of people (even, it seems, the surviving Beatles) I have mixed feelings. It is a little ghoulish to have Zombie John Lennon’s A.I.-enhanced voice (and George Harrison’s guitar) playing alongside the living Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.


And while I quite like the song, in the vast catalog of John Lennon music, it’s a C-level demo.


On the other hand, you hear those voices—and it really is the Beatles.


And God, how we love them.


The Peter Jackson music video is quite lovely:

Here’s a short film about making the song:

Farewell, truly, to the greatest band of all time.

In the music video, they have an old George Harrison looking as old as Ringo and Paul. Did he live to be that old? I always thought he died young(ish). Or did they age him to make it look like he was in the room?
