Sounds great with both voices. Mary Hopkin's fully arranged version is cool but the stripped acoustic version is cool as well. I can't choose.

I know exactly what you mean, Joost.  So I've added another choice in the poll to reflect your opinion.

It's amazing how Paul can make a demo sound full and polished.  Sometimes he even uses his voice to add instruments!  Like this...

That's cool. :) Paul would've been a great traditional singer/songwriter. It would be cool if he'd make a whole album in that fashion. With just his voice and an acoustic guitar.

Definately Paul's version.I think that his voice is very beautiful in that song and I don't really like Mary's version as much.I also like how it's acoustic in Paul's version.

I hope you don't take this wrong Walrus, but you have some reading to do.

Mary Hopkin was a welsh singer that Paul saw on TV and brought over to The Beatles record label, Apple Records. She had a huge hit with a song that was originally a traditional Russian dance song, rewritten as "Those Were The Days".

Read some Beatles books.
