I feel a whole lot better
Don't know which is funnier, the lip synching or the go-go dancers on the shakey towers.
Great original by the Byrds, but I think Petty's cover was better (better guitar, better harmony)
Those go-go dancers rule. I believe this was actually live vocal over the pre-recorded track.
Hey... Twerking '60s style! I think this was lip sync to track. You can see McGuinn kind of smirking while attempting to sing harmony. But always love his guitar sound and the beautiful Ric he makes it on.
And, this song was always intriguing. What did she do? Was it worse than the obvious? How does this apply to the '60s free love ethos?
 "The reason why, I can't say" --- I always assumed that she was cheatin' on him, but he was too proud to admit it.
And McGuinn became a much better guitarist later on.
 In defense of Roger(Jim), his technique of finger picking and flat picking a 12 string Richenbacher (I'm sure I spelled that wrong) to get that jangly sound was very cutting edge n 1965. He was in bands since the late '50s, and played that guitar almost like a banjo. Everyone gets better later on if they keep at it, but for the time (before Clapton, Hendrix,Page) McGuinn was highly regarded.
