There has been a great deal of debate surrounding just who sang the "aaaaaahhs" after Paul's line "somebody spoke and I went into a dream" from A Day In The Life.

Now you can judge for yourselves - I've uploaded the two clips!! Please let me know what you think.

I've read that it was both of them. Anyone else ever read that or am I imagining it?

Oh well. Just wanted to know if there was a definitive answer. Guess not. I know it's not John by himself anyway. I think it's dumb that we can't discuss this ever again. If someone ever finds any new information, I hope they don't hesitate to post it. I asked the question months before that whole ridiculous fiasco anyway and nothing ever came of it. It's got to be somewhere this info.

I don't have to look back on this thread, I remember it well and it was mostly about male ego instead of getting to the truth. I just listened again and cannot say without a doubt that it's one or the other. One minute I hear Paul and the next John. But mostly Paul. Either way it gives me the freaking chills. I absolutly love those aaahhhs. BTW, Paul can do a damn good imitation of John as we know from Anthology's Real Love.

It's Paul.  It's in Paul's section of the song.  It's his crescendo.  Why would he let John do it after he's built up to that point.  

The line is also melodically very Pauline--by way of Brian Wilson.  It follows the notes pretty carefully.  John would slide and elide more.  Paul is precise.  

There's usually more honey in Paul's voice, more ice in John's.  You can hear the "taste of honey" in the Ahhhs.

Boy, you all have been really going at it on this! I got a pair of Altec Lansing speakers on my comp. which are not shabby, and I still think it can go either way. Somebody needs to ask Paul himself. How 'bout you App?

I wish you had some solid evidence about that. I'm in NO way trying to insult or start any sort of argument. I just think that without a Beatle or George Martin himself saying so (or anyone else who has first hand knowledge), you can't be sure. I swear, I thought it was John for years, but a listen on headphones one day, and suddenly I hear Paul. So I don't know. I'd like to say, oh okay it's John, but I can't. Don't yell at me now love.

Where did they go? Mr Charlie? Colleen? This has been a battlefield so far. Never got involved myself (so far), but now that I've listened to it:
the right mix: John
the left mix: Paul

But this is not the "Who is The Incredible Thread Ender???" thread, is it?  :D

It's time to update this (it was the main topic at the Forum Party 2005, ;D, that one that most of you missed). Don't worry, I was teasing you all: it was funnier than these arguments ... and there'll be another party pretty soon, I guess.  ;)

I agree with Bobber.
The right mix is clearly John: John-esq begining of the aaaah, thinner aaaah and in typical high-pitched voice in the middle and an erratic ending of the aaaah segment (very John). However I must admit than sounds a bit like Paul in the middle.

The left mix is not so clear to me but it sounds more like Paul: self-confident and professional beginning of the aaaah, sweet, warmer and lower aaaah in the middle and a polished up ending (professional again) of the aaaah. 8)

and now: what do YOU think?
Share your opinion with us  ;D (there are a few blue meanies waiting for you ... hehehe ... hahaha ...HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) :D Sorry  :B  ;D
