Oh Darling! is written and sung and played as a fifties throwback.
The song suffers from Paul's not quite getting the vocals right. Paul is a great singer, don't get me wrong, but here ... not quite. The fact that he had so many attempts at the vocals, over some weeks, shows that Paul himself knew it wasn't quite "there".[/quote]
Yeah, definitely Fifties.
The thing was, because Paul hadn't sung anything like this probably since 1966 (live versions of I'm Down) his voice was not in the right condition to sing it. He was actually getting in the studio early everyday to blast out his vocals so he could get his voice re-accustomed to singing like this once more.
