Who says 'f***ing Hell'?
« on: March 01, 2006, 03:27:01 PM »

According to the Beatles Anomalies List (and myself) it's John Lennon who says 'f***ing Hell' in Hey Jude:
2:52-3:02. 2:58 mostly Listen to an excerpt on this site: http://www.pootle.demon.co.uk/wgo.htm

I guess (well, I know) that you're not the only one who was waiting for this kind of books ... I wonder why people like Geoff (and there's not many who can tell stories from first hand ... and certainly there's not many who are still alive, sadly) haven't written books telling their truth to the world and why they're doing these years ... anyway, good stories for sure.  :)

I always thought it was John too, but that story sounds pretty sincere. I wouldnt go to bat with just that info though.

Just another question about the boys that has three or more answers to it.

It's John. He liked that phrase, he used it in a number of interviews. It's hard to believe it was Paul-he liked the 'nice' image, and it doesn't even sound like him, just like it doesn't sound like him on the 'AAAAAHHHHH' in "A Day In The Life". We should start a topic on that...

George Martin phoned me the other night and he said it was Paul who did the aaahs which is proof enough for me!! ;)

f***ing hell isn't a phrase, it's an expletive.
Any of the Beatles could say it in a moment of anger or disappointment.

What kind of an answer is that?

This forum has a kind of dumbing down edge to it that kind of says oh well what the shi* who cares.

So be it.

But don't expect any decent discussion.

God, you're splitting hairs now. Phrase, expletive, whatever. Some people DO use certain expressions, curse words, whatever, with more frequency than others. It can become a habit. So if there's proof that this person uses that 'expletive' quite a often, then there's a basis for assuming it's him saying it in this case too.

Please. Pretty much everyone (unless you're Amish or something) has said "f***ing hell" at SOME point. It sounds like John, but each of the Beatles are just as likely to have said it.

Everyone? I don't hear Americans using that expression. I thought it was a mostly English thing. Americans are more likely to say mother f***er or f*** it. But A LOT of people don't really curse and if someone is more prone to cursing then they will. It happens at work. Teachers who curse all the time mess up and curse in front of the kids. I had to stop cursing when I became a teacher because I knew I'd mess up and curse in front of them.I mean, I do curse, just not as frequently. All I was saying was that Duane had a point.

Err, yeah, I guess that's true. I guess I was thinking from a teenage point of view. But all of the Beatles swore anyway. So it could have been any of them.

I hardly ever hear Paul cursing. I think he makes it through the entire Anthology without one curse. But he's older now. What's that he says when they play the mess up from those sessions? Does he call someone a b****? Now I can't remember. It cracked me up though. Him cursing.

Well, to my ears it is quite clearly George Harrison who says "f***ing hell". As to my ears it is John and Paul who both do the "agggghhhhhhhhhhs" in 'A Day In The Life". As to my ears the run out groove on 'Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band' is saying "Never could be any other way".

aaggghh?

I have to listen again to the f***ing hell. I can't remember who I thought it was. But it is so obviously Paul on A Day in the Life. I can see why people think it sounds like John, but once you know it's hard not to hear Paul. If you're really listening.

Cursing gets old when you hear it 24/7.

I take your point.
And Lennon certainly did like swearing.
But it doesn't prove at all that it's him swearing here.
