They aren`t playing a Beatles song because it is a music video for a song called Garble Arch by Blame Ringo hence the title of the video.

"if the beatles jumped off a cliff for an album cover would you do that too?"

If that happened, do you honestly think they`d put that on the drating album cover?

Gosh, when I`m old enough and have enough freakin` money, I`d do that. I bet those drivers get pretty pissed off drivin` through there with constant fans recreating Abbey Road.
lol @random mooning guy.

"they should have had a song from the album playing in the vid."

Agreed.

"if the beatles jumped off a cliff for an album cover would you do that too?"

Uh duh.

Lol at the brave guy who flashed the camera.

Also, I would do the same if I were at Abbey Road.

half of them are walking like super stiff. in the album cover all the beatles look pretty natural to me, not swingging their arms up and down like idiots and i`m pretty sure they bent their knees.

Hmm can`t put my finger on why, but something about this vid/music combo made the clip seem melancholy to me.

Am I the only one who paused the video every time a car got close to the camera, to see if and of the licence plates were recognisable?

*blush*

They didn`t play a Beatles song for the video!?

WHAT THE HELL.
~~~~~~

Probably to make sure that youtube/music company (WGM?) wouldn`t mute their video if they used a song by such a popular/well-known band.

*Laughs* Those poor drivers having to wait for the retards to get the hell across the road. xP

And I don`t mean `retards` in a bad way, it`s just - what if you were a regular driver on that road? You`d see all these tourists trying to make that pose over and over again. You`d get kinda tired of it, don`t you think?

Strangely enough, I was watching a film the other day where they did this, and it got me thinking into how many people do that a day! I`m glad I`ve seen some proof that my thoughts aren`t totally stupid.

As a driver in London and Surrey, I can imagine that anyone who has to drive down that road even once would get annoyed with it. Or maybe that just me and my road rage. I wouldn`t be surprised if there were lots of near accidents though with cars just driving over the crossing, knowing what they wanna do when get start going over the zebra crossing.

The ones who do it when there`s no camera are just weird.

The ones doing it from the wrong direction... boo!

As for everyone else, it`s not a weird pose on the cover of the album, they`re just walking.

I fully plan on doing that when/if (hopefully when) I visit England. And I`m going to do it barefoot too!

Nothing wrong with being a stupid tourist I always say.

I walked over to Abbey Road to check it out when living in Maida Vale. Any street coming into abbey road at the junction has the side streets sign barely tacked onto the brick wall whereas just around the corner the abbey road street sign is no longer mounted likewise on the brick walls as on the abbey road album cover, but is now freestanding wrapped around by metal bar which is then sunk into the pavement. It`d take a blowtorch to pinch the street sign as of probably not a month or two since the albums release in 1970.

In their defense it`s not like if you`re a tourist you can`t not do that.

Meh the beatles were gash. I mean yeah they were doing something new which led to great things but in my opinion they weren`t great things themselves. As songs go they`re all pretty bland.
