This Saturday (25 April) a sing-along edition of The Beatles’ 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine will be screened on the band’s official YouTube channel. The film – which was remastered and restored for theatrical and DVD release in 2018 – has never been available on YouTube before. Well, not in an official capacity.
This screening is described as a one-off event that will feature the synchronised lyrics across the bottom of the screen so audiences can sing along with the title track as well as ‘Hey Bulldog’ and ‘Only A Northern Song’ (two of the band’s best, but inexplicably overlooked, songs, if you ask us). The second half of the album – featuring the orchestral work of producer George Martin – offers slightly less opportunity for audience participation.
It all starts at 5pm GMT on Saturday with social activity gathering around the #YellowSubLive hashtag (as well as the wider #StayHome and #WithMe hashtags).
