I should have known better
« on: June 07, 2012, 11:56:56 PM »

was listening to my ipod on my flight home today and I should have known better came on.  I lose track of this song sometimes and don't hear it for a long period.  Wow, I LOVE this song, the changing tone of John's voice throughout and of course the very cool mental images from HDN when they play it on the train.

In the concert scene at the end of AHDN, Paul sings the song in unison with John (lip-syncing, of course). I assume this is because on the track, there are overlaps between John's vocal and his harmonica, and the average fan knew nothing about overdubbing to understand how John could sing and play simultaneously. Paul does not share lead vocals on this, does he? Sounds like a double-tracked vocal by John. Just checking.

No, Paul doesn't sing on that song, it's just John (I'm guessing it's that double-tracked vocal thing, I don't know what you call it ha2ha ). I don't think I'd like the song as much if Paul sang with John, John's voice is what makes the song in my opinion :)
