I love it even though it drives me nuts. The song Heather (which starts about 30 seconds in) was recorded by Paul McCartney and Donovan in 1969 during the making of a record for Mary Hopkin. I love the song, but it's only on Beatles bootlegs. Such bootlegs are not exactly 90% Heather-quality material, so you end up sifting through a bunch of uninteresting stuff to find the occasional gem. Like a much more tedious version of the Anthology releases. In the end, though, songs like Heather make it worthwhile.

Whoops! Upon first posting this, I embedded the wrong movie, including not sweet McCartney bootleg Heather, but this tune:
which is good, but of a different temperament.
