Musical Interlude: You're Sixteen (1973)

Ringo Starr's cover of Johnny Burnette's "You're Sixteen" was originally released in the winter of 1973-4. In April of 1978, Starr headlined an NBC special to promote the album, "Bad Boy", which was about to be released. Just for kicks, he made a video for "You're Sixteen", nearly 4 1/2 years after its inital release.

If the young lady in the video looks familar, she should. It's Carrie Fisher, nearly a year removed from "Star Wars".
