In this age of YouTube I'm always trying to find live performances of songs I love. I can think of only a few instances where a hit/popular song was filmed while it was being recorded. I don't mean a song that was filmed live or in the studio after it became popular. Here are some examples of hit songs that were filmed during their recording: - "It Was a Very Good Year" Frank Sinatra, CBS Special broadcast in November, 1965. - "Alfie" Cilla Black, Burt Bacharach. Filmed at Abbey Road studios in 1965. - "All You Need is Love" The Beatles. "Our World" broadcast (1967). - "Star Spangled Banner" Jimi Hendrix, Woodstock (1969). This was not a chart "hit" but an iconic rendition I'd heard many times in high school and college before seeing the actual performance in the movie. - "Layla" Eric Clapton (1992). From the MTV "Unplugged" series. Was the hit version of "Tears in Heaven" also from the "Unplugged" performance? Any others?
