Elvis Costello does Penny Lane for his mum and the POTUS, filmed June 2, 2010, for PBS. I know I’m betraying both my age and a schmaltz streak a mile wide, but…

Found at Open Culture

And of course the pretty nurse knew that, for cut flowers, she needed to sear the ends of the poppies with a lit match first, right?
