one of the best songs of all time is accompanied by a wonderful video
25 July 2018 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

Psychedelic, surreal, and heavily atmospheric are all ways to describe not only The Beatles's masterpiece of a song 'Strawberry Fields Forever', but also the wonderful video that was made for it. The Beatles YouTube channel has uploaded this video in stunning HD quality, so I recommend anyone who hasn't seen this yet to just look it up right away. The video is fittingly playful and avant garde, it gets so odd and yet so artful that I cannot help but somehow feel hugely impacted by it in a strange, indescribable way. It's honestly one of the greatest music videos I've seen, making 'Strawberry Fields Forever' not only an expected must listen, but an unexpected must watch.
