Good point about fair use:

It's my understanding that the recording of a song, while it plays on  
a live sound system, is clear for internet publication (fair use).   
If the clip used the song as an original soundtrack, then the use  
would not be OK.  One hears a background song on the radio while two  
people talk on camera is an example of an approved use.

The live, public performance to McCartney's recording is another  
issue altogether.
