‘The Fool on the Hill’ needs as much introduction as the band that sung it. Nevertheless, it was included on the Magical Mystery Tour EP and album. It was one of Paul’s and he composed it on the piano at his father’s house in Liverpool. And so, how apt that he should decide to go to France on a whim (with no money, nor passport) with a couple of mates to shoot the promotional sequence for the Magical Mystery Tour film on a hill near Nice, Côte d’Azur. They were on top of their game… they could do what they wanted.
