The Beatles invented many things, with tuned guitar feedback, stadium tours, eight-day work weeks, collarless suits and conceptual rock albums being among their innovations. The Beatles were also pioneers in the field of music videos, and this week sees the release of a new version of the Beatles' 1 compilation that updates and enhances the toppermost-poppermost 2000 release with videos accompanying each of the band's No. 1 singles. The package pairs early successes, such as Love Me Do, with television appearances from the day, but Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1966 promo clip for Paperback Writer is perhaps the first dedicated music video. And it's a yawner. In something that looks like nothing more than a glorified photo shoot, the boys unexcitedly mime the song on a mansion's grounds, with Ringo reduced to bystander status without his drum kit. A trippy original video for A Day in the Life – included in the expanded (1+) version – is the best of the lot, but even that fails to match the mind-blowingness of the song itself. So while the Beatles have many excellent legacies, it would seem MTV, MuchMusic and YouTube owe little to Liverpool's finest.
