John Lennon - ending of 'Get Back'
« on: September 05, 2004, 11:52:58 PM »

Hi. I was curious on what does John say at the end of the song "Get Back"? I think he says something on the lines "I'd like to say thanks on behalf of...", but I never quite got it.

"I'd like to thank you on behalf of the group, and I hope we passed the audition."

After he says "group", he says "and ourselves", then "and I hope..."etc :)

It's only on the Let It Be album version of Get Back - not the 'naked' version.

Yeah, I noticed it too. I just hear that at the Let It Be original album. Also on the original one, it takes about 20 seconds for the song to begin, unlike other albums it was included in.

In fact, it's the same version of Get Back on both the Let It Be album AND the single (Past Masters) version - the LIB version was not recorded during the rooftop performance. To give the track a 'live feel', Phil Spector added a brief exerpt of the band warming up from the roof-top performance, but he used the single version and not one of the roof-top versions. To reinforce the illusion of it being a live track, Spector edits off the final reprise and adds the hand-clapping and "I'd like to say thank you..." comments from the roof-top session! Confusing? ;D

"I hope we passed the audition" is a reference to a Decca audition (when
they were rejected, January 1st, 1962.)

VERY interesting. I knew Spector edited the "warmup" and "John's thank you" bit onto the track. I have to agree that Spector's intention was to give the track a "live feel". But consider this: Assuming that Spector and Lennon were in cahoots together to annoy Paul (adding the orchestra and ladies' choir to "Long And Winding Road"), is it also possible that "what" and "where" Spector chose those edits were meant to make Paul look like a jerk? On the finished track, Paul stops singing as though he was about to go into the reprise (which, of course, he was). Instead, we hear Maureen Starkey cheer and the hand-clapping, followed by John's line, as edited in by Spector. Damned good editing job by Spector; no seams in the edit to the average ear. But, the first couple times I heard this track, I thought Paul's "Thanks, Mo" (to Maureen) sounded a bit sarcastic, as though he was annoyed. In other words, Paul was p*ssed off, as in, "Thanks, Mo for f***ing up the end of my song!" Does that make sense?
