Try it as a sing-along music video, Karaoke, or try to fill in the Organ parts with your own instrument.

Sorry about the huge file size. A karaoke flash requires good sound, and almost everything was drawn with colored pencils.

"Only a Northern Song" is one of The Beatles less-famous gems, from the late and great George Harrison. This is the version from "Anthology 2," remixed.

08/16 EDIT:
This is #10 in the Top Ten?! Being on the list was never a possibility to me and thus never a motivation. I'm very pleasantly surprised :-) Thanks!

Make one for the other version

I'm used to the yellow submarine version of this song. After seeing how awesome this one is I'm requesting that you make another one for the other version as well or put ti in this one whichever comes first.

But even though it is very good I say that at times the animation is a bit sloppy and sometime the pictures havn't been cut out properly and have a bit of an outline if you know what I mean by that if you don't forget it. Also maby it's just em but I feel that in the karaoke the beat of the lyrics are slightly off other than that it's more or less perfect. I'll still give you a ten though for effort and for getting it out on Clock day :).

One of my all-time favorites!

My dad was a mad beatles fanatic, so I was raised watching Yellow Submarine. Consequently, this is one of my all-time favorite Beatles songs for that very reason.

I love the colored pencil work, it's brilliant and it adds a ton of character to this video that is already full of great style and storytelling. This totally deserves its place in the top ten, and I would hope would get much higher any other day.

(title in work)

A very nice style to this movie. The color pencil style of graphics is nothing really new, but it's still something that doesn't show up too often on Newgrounds. However, a karaoke game here on NG is something that I've never seen, so this was quite unique. I would have picked a better song...but to each his own I suppose.

Believe it or not, I made a Karaoke movie almost 3 years ago for "Free as a Bird": /352819

But I made it in Flash MX and my Flash skills were worse than they are now, so much is wrong with it. I'm considering the idea of fixing it up and uploading it again.
