Wow John!!!! What a lovely and super-fun video. Beautiful, silky lead voice and harmonies mate.

Yoshi tying it all together on the bass, Mario and Luigi with some sweet lil cameos...he he. Your movie making skills are high order. Just fabulous. :)

Great job, John! I had totally forgotten this song until yesterday, when I went to the Ukulele Union of Boston's annual Ukulele Melee gathering. We played this in a session on harmonies, and later played it in front of the whole gathering. I hope you won't mind if I post the video of that when it becomes available.

Smashing John! As we'd have said back then. There is nothing like a little Beatles to put the smile back on your face. Loved the detail of the badge replacing the Dino's nose....which later becomes an eerie little window in your "backing singer"'s chest - revealing the trick of it all - life is an illusion ;)

Thanks, insula! Thanks, Barbablanca! One problem with green screening with the Mario Brothers is that Luigi and Yoshi are green!
