This is all so funny...It still sounds like John to me. It's the nasalness in the arhhhh!!!

For what it's worth, I used to teach singing. Those clips seem to re-affirm my own inclinations that it is John. Check out the coarseness. It just don't sound like Paul. Paul would have not allowed any croak in his voice I'm sure. lol.

Still...I'm not confirming nothing....That would be tooo risky on this thread! lol ;)

Having listened to the two pieces, referencing Mark Lewisohn's book about the quadruple tracking of echo used for John's voice, and that John is hitting notes a little high for his particular register, Its John. I'm pretty certain that if 'Lucy' had been done with as much echo, as high as John's voice is, it would probably be reminiscent of Paul's as well. If you want to believe its Paul, so be it, no harm done. Easy mistake, but its clearly John's voice. Amen.

Second listen and clip 2 is more difficult to distinguish. Clip 1 does it for me though....Right near the end...That's the nasal bit for me. ;)

This is so weird - I absolutely hear Paul 100% without a question of doubt. Obviously, that is what I[/b] hear though!

I thought these clips would dispel any doubts... wrong! LOL ;D

Perhaps this wiill help convince you...

1. On an earlier take Paul runs through his "woke up..." sequence (the take which ends with Paul flubbing his line and laughing before he says "sh*t") his vocal is drenched in tape delay (echo) ala Lennon. So it wasn't just a John thing to record in this style.  

2. Paul could mimic John's vocal style - he admitted that in many interviews around the time that Free As A Bird was released.

3. Listen to the first bit of the "aaahs" (the descending scale) - it is so distinctly Paul. Admittedly, the 2nd bit (the ascending scale) is more nasaly and Lennon-esque but if you listen closely you can hear it's Paul. I swear! ;D

Take another listen - I hope the debate continues.

Quote from: Ydoll_Gwyn
My daughter's ears are very relevant, because she has talent in that area. I notice your daughter (at 22) is still talking about people being dream boats: that seemed to be her qualification. Nuff said on that one.

The thing that interests me is that you can't bear to be disagreed with. You SAY you like discussion: but as soon as someone challenges, you go off half-cocked. It's an interesting phenomenon to watch. After I posted my opinion on whose voice it was, I went and did some work, and then returned to find you spraying your venom everywhere. Mate, you have a social dysfunction, that's for sure.


you obviosuly cant tell the difference of their voices in the first place...but Im not trying to argue, your a Ringo fan ;D

I think it's Paul, regardless of Mr. Charlie's evidence.  When the "ahh"s first start it's a stronger, more in the throat kind of voice, like Paul's.  But when the horns start to drown it out it sounds more nasaly like John's.  Besides, why does this matter at all and why is it making people act like such jerks?  All Ydoll Gwyn did was state his opinion and then Mr. Charlie immediately takes offense and starts calling him an a** and disregarding Ydoll's statements as invalid while upholding his own, equally or more unsupportable statements as if it's common sense and everyone should agree with them.

Well the right rear one sounds like it could be either of them and the left rear one sounds like Paul then turning into John. But Paul could do that stuff so it could very well be him the whole time. Although I do think Lennon is in there somewhere. I'M STILL SO CONFUSED!!!!!!!! But man do I enjoy listening to that part isolated! Why didn't anyone ever ask Paul this in an interview!! They've asked him just about everything else!!!

LOL!!! Now that would really be messing with our heads!!!


The more I listen, the right rear one sounds more like Paul starting as well. But I still think John's following him up. Just because it gets more nasal and high pitched. But again, Paul's voice was pretty versitile. Like the Lovely Rita thing someone mentioned. Similiar. Anyway, dontcha just LOVE this song?? It should be given some kinda special award for greatest song of all time or something. Cuz it is.

Thanks for your honesty.  I'm not going after anyone who says what they hear.  Only one person who's opinion is worthless anyway.

I -am- surprised that a voice professional would make that mistake but hey...we know Paul was able to double John's voice (and vice versa) for years.  Isolated it is cleaerer than the record but still...tantaliyzingly alike.

Fair enough.  I think you're wrong of course, but the bit about Lucy IS a provacative mention worth noting.  Yes, he did sing in that register in Lucy.  Same as Paul did in Lovely Rita.

I appreciate your honest input.  I shan't bother you about it again.
