I’m not the only one who feels weird about this, right?

There’s a new song out by the Beatles. That’s… weird, right? I’ve spent the last month thinking about how weird it is, and when my brain gets stuck on a question the only way to clear it out is to make a video, so this is gonna be about 20 minutes or so of me trying to figure out how I feel about the fact that there’s new Beatles music in 2023, when half the Beatles have been dead for decades. What does it say about us that this is a thing that happened, and what does it say about us that this is a thing that matters? Oh, and while we’re on the topic anyway, is it actually a good song?
