This piece of video from the Beatles documentary by Peter Jackson is wonderful.
It’s a look into the creative process when things are stuck, but somewhere there must be an exit that makes everything right.
In this fragment Paul McCartney is persistently exploring different variations that don’t seem to be right. Pushing until things eventually fall into place and Get Back appears.
I’ve never seen anything like this on film before. Paul really has nothing at the 30 second mark—but 45 seconds later he’s got the makings of a hit single. pic.twitter.com/kvGOp1yuZs— Ted Gioia (@tedgioia) November 28, 2021
