Free as a Bird

I've often thought that if I could be any animal in the world, I'd probably want to be a bird. I like the thought of being able to fly over land and see everything happening down below. I also think it'd be neat to live in trees. Though, I admit, the thought of eating worms and such is somewhat of a turnoff; I imagine I'd be a vegetarian sort of bird instead. But I do like the thought of how unconfined a bird can be--that he can travel for miles on end in a single day, with little restriction, free to come and go as he pleases.

What got me to thinking upon this is that my brother was getting me to listen to a few new songs he'd found on Youtube--none of which I found particularly endearing. When he'd left, I found myself looking up some old reliable songs I hadn't heard for awhile. One of the songs I drifted upon was a real favorite, Free as a Bird, which I will always insist is the last true final song by the Beatles. Anyway, watching the video for that song made me think about how neat it would be to have the perspective of a bird. I thought I'd share that with you now. I hope you enjoy! :)

Not a bad song, but a little too "advanced" for my taste. I preferred their more melodic things: "When I'm 64," "Hey, Jude," "Penny Lane," "Obladi, Oblada," etc.

The video is pretty amazing.
