Video of the Week - Neil Young & Paul McCartney: "A Day in the Life" (live from Hyde Park)

I'm not really sure this clip needs any setup. It's two musical giants playing one of the most iconic songs ever written. Is there any way the result wouldn't be amazing? Probably not.

I will say that having experienced Paul McCartney headline Coachella two months ago, the dude can certainly still do all his old Beatles songs justice. Throw in the frenetic guitar stylings of Neil Young, and "A Day in the Life" becomes about twice as loud as you've every heard it before. There's also nothing quite like being in a crowd where everyone is singing their hearts out to a song that has touched all of them in some way or another. Pretty damn special. Enjoy.
