Peter Sellers made a number of hilarious recordings of Beatles songs, including an infamous rendition of She Loves You as Dr. Strangelove. In 1965, he adapted the lyrics of A Hard Day's Night into a Shakespearian satire. Although I've seen his live performance many times, I never knew there were outtakes! Here is his performance, with bloopers at the end. Enjoy!
