John, Paul, George & Lupin
Since I devoted my big Wednesday post to The Beatles, here's a clever way to work myself back to the main course. I want you to take a look at this screenshot from Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro. Am I the only one who sees this as a direct homage to the 1969 Beatles LP, Hey Jude? Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but if that's the truth, then I'm overreaching on most topics on this blog.
I say the hat on the statue is a tribute to The Beatles. Who's with me?
P.S. Is there any specific reason why Hey Jude was not accepted into Beatles canon? Did it seem too close to the Capitol records which reshuffled the UK albums with other singles? Or was it the double punch of the Red & Blue and Past Masters albums?
