Beatles lyrics, mapped

The people at Vanity Fair have published a video which are using Google maps to take the viewer on a Beatles voyage without leaving their couch. On the 20th of December last year, they published "Every Place in Beatles Lyrics, Mapped" on YouTube. While this is a bit of an exaggeration, it's still an enjoyable 12+ minutes long film which will take you to several spots around the globe.

"Take yourself on a tour of lyric locations in The Beatles songs. From Eleanor Rigby's gravestone in Liverpool to Abbey Road in North London, see the locations behind The Beatles lyrics throughout England, France, Russia, India, the United States, and more countries, covering 25,510 miles around the world."

Of course, there are several mistakes in the video, which you will notice if you're well versed in Beatles history. For instance, the video claims that Paul McCartney was inspired by Eleanor Rigby's tombstone when he wrote that song, whereas he has never acknowledged this himself, attributing "Eleanor" to actress Eleanor Bron from the "Help!" film. "Rigby" supposedly comes from a shop, "Rigby's" in Bristol which McCartney happened to drive by while trying to come up with a name for the song. Still, "Eleanor Rigby" from the tombstone may have lurked in his subconsciousness and made the two names click in his mind.



No "Norwegian woods" in this video, though!
