On July 3, 2012 at the historical house of Paul Revere, the actor, comedian, writer and musician Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers performed the song “Me and Paul Revere.”
Watch it now!
This George Harrison-penned Beatles tune is one of the best love songs of all times (even Frank Sinatra said so!) The funny thing is… the “L” word is never mentioned, then again… it doesn’t have to, you just Know.
The original video could not be used for this post… but this compilation is a nice second choice. But the song is Number One…. a Masterpiece.

By the mid-1950s, he appeared on the radio, television and the silver screen.
