I always thought it was a cheap, sweet wine "suitable" for middle- and high schoolers, like "Annie Green Springs" or "Boone's Farm" for those of a certain age and locale. Just a depraved upbringing, I suppose.

Those screams are probably the highest notes he ever reached. It's amazing.  :)

His voice was definitely at its strongest and best when he sang this song. He could sing the highest notes and the lowest notes and the deepest notes. I think his voice started to weaken around 1973 and 1974. He never sang with that deep voice again after 1973.

I wonder if it wasn't written with Linda and the kids in the room. It sounds like it grew out of a demented family sing along. Great cheeky throwaway.

Anyway, Paul's voice is still really good. I mean, the man is over 65 years old.
The other day I was watching "Good Vibrations" sung by Brian Wilson on a 2003 or 2004 concert, and the poor man was distroyed.

And yes, "Monkberry Moon Delight" is one of Paul's greatest vocal performances. I've always tried to reach the highest notes when he, during the last seconds of the songs say, Monkerry Moon Deli-i-i, i-i-i, i-i-i... and on and on... I still don't understand how he can reach those notes. Good for you Macca!

when I first heard it I didn't think it was him because his voice did not sound the same. I give the man props for still going strong today and his voice is different but still great.

I don't mean this in an offensive way but how did you think his voice sounded? During 1968-1972 his voice was deep and powerful like that. Listen to some of his songs on The White Album, Let it Be, McCartney and Ram, his voice has that very deep sound.

well I didn't mean literally not knowing who it was but it was a stretch. I think it was mostly because it was a different kind of song. I hadn't heard a song like that from him ever so I guess I should have just said it was different.

Paul has a lot of range vocally and he can sing basically any type of song.
