Monday Morning Music: Paul McCartney (live, raised), “Helter Skelter”

Yes, it’s a little late for Monday Morning Music, and I’m almost two years late in discovering this terrific clip.

But that’s OK. Pop culture actually moves more slowly today than it did in Paul’s day.

Huh? You say. This is the era of the instant Tweet. Rebecca Black living Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes.

Sure, but it’s also an era in which Coldplay, which releases albums every three years, is considered a relatively prolific band. No one seems to consider the possibility that seven seasons is a fine respectable run for The Office. Aerosmith is still coasting from the early ’90s power ballads (the ones that all sounded alike) it released after its 1987-89 comeback.

Back in the Beatles’ day, two years would’ve been long enough for three albums, a movie and a couple of international incidents.

So there. And here’s a terrific marquee-top performance.
