Watch: The Beatles Live in Japan in 1966

Today is Paul McCartney's 70th birthday. In honor of the special occasion, we trolled through the archives (aka "searched YouTube") for some Asia-related Beatles goodness. What we found was the complete video of The Beatles' July 1966 concert at Budokan arena in Tokyo, Japan. The footage, embedded above, includes the following 11 songs:

1. Rock And Roll Music
2. She's A Woman
3. If I Needed Someone
4. Day Tripper
5. Baby's In Black
6. I Feel Fine
7. Yesterday
8. I Wanna Be Your Man
9. Nowhere Man
10. Paperback Writer
11. I'm Down

As an added bonus, we're also throwing in this behind-the scenes 1966 footage of The Beatles in Japan in which you learn, among other things, how often the lads wash their hair in an average week.

Happy Birthday, Sir Paul!
