There's a few versions of Get Back with John on vocals. This is my favourite, from Twickenham. Great guitar solo, and when they mess up Ringo does a nice little drum break to bring them back.

 

Also from the January 1969 Twickenham sessions, Paul doodling Strawberry Fields Forever.

Awesome, thanks!

I just realized I had heard Get Back with George on vocals already (and didn't really like it) but now I've listened to a few versions with John on vocals and I really like that! Would've loved to hear a serious version with him on vocals, think it would've sounded great

Edit: Oh there's also a vid of where Paul is singing I'm So Tired, never heard that before either!

Man I have a lot of pet peeves...

Pet Peeve:  When people make you feel bad for not wanting kids, like it's your duty as a female to do so..

My boss is the culprit once again.  ahdn_paul_01Yesterday a co-worker asked if I was going to have kids and I said "I'm leaning towards no these days" and my boss chimes in and says "Well that's selfish."  Really?  I said "Why?  Because I don't have enough money and I don't want to struggle and raise a poor child?  That's not fair to a kid.  Also maybe I just don't want to do it, is that OK?" He kinda backed off and said "Well yeah it's your choice".  Ya, it is, so keep your mouth shut next time.

I really don't like the stereotype that goes with not wanting kids.  There are over 7 billion people on this earth already, am I really being selfish for not creating another one?  It's a personal choice, and right now I am quite happy with it being just me and my husband.  Maybe I will change my mind in the future, but maybe not?  Am I such a terrible person?  Do I have to be viewed as a cold hearted bitch?  Do I have to goo over every baby that comes in the store?  Don't get me wrong, if people want kids and have them, I think that's wonderful!  A couple of years ago I was wanting them, but my opinion has changed, and it might change again.  I just don't like being judged on that.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11 

I tell you, that man is lucky that he employs me because I would not bite my tongue as much as I do. 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

This talk about babies make me think of a few other pet peeves of mine. I don't know if they've been mentioned before by anyone else or by me, but here we go.

1. I hate it when you go to a show and people take their babies. Especially to a festival or something like that. It's annoying and you're ruining it for everyone else, besides, it's not a place for a baby. Just get a friggin babysitter and if you can't get one, just don't go. Easy as that.

2. I can't stand watching women who are smoking while walking with a stroller with a child in it. It makes me so angry. I mean, are they retarded or something? Not to mention pregnant women who smoke. Like, really? Are you not familiar with the consequenses of that? Don't you care about your baby's health at all? Or your own? Are you a selfish retard? Those are the same kinds of people who are whining when their kid turns out to be mentally retarded or asthmatic or something. It's such a selfish and stupid thing to do and whenever I see it I really have to refrain from going there and tell them what they're doing to their children.

Wow I'm really moody today.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Yup, yup. Or if they are drinking while pregnant.

Another one that bugs is people letting their kids drive at an early age like 13 and below. One its dangerous and two its illegal! I'm not usually a stickler for laws, but I care about safety of others. Same goes for people who drive drunk. I had an acquaintance who was so proud her and her dad can drive drunk.

Don't listen to him.

I've had the kid question since I was a teenager and its only gotten worse since I've gotten married. People seem to think kids will make me happier. No, they would make me more stressed out. I enjoy being married without kids right now. This may seem selfish, but I don't to have answer to anyone. If I want to go to the movies, then I can go without worrying about a babysitter or what movie I'm going to see. Also with me being in school would not be the best idea to have a kid right now. I'm already having those moment where I can't believe where the time has gone. Furthermore, like you said financial reasons. Children cost a lot! I'm not about to go broke right now or worse get on welfare. I refuse to become an object of the government if I can help it. I have nieces and nephews that I love and thats good enough for me now. I would like to have kids someday, but right now I'm enjoying my 20s while I can. 

You can have kids when you want or not have them at all. Whatever makes you happy. 

Thank you.  There's nothing wrong with enjoying your freedom, right?  Also being broke sucks, and I don't miss it.  I'm 29 and he's 31 and finally we are starting to get on our feet..  not living the high-life, but definitely more comfortable and not living pay check to pay check anymore (seeing Paul McCartney twice in 8 months is an example!).  I want to keep chasing that feeling.  We're also still figuring out who we are and what we want to do career wise.  Some people figure that stuff out early and that's great, but we're still working on it.  In the meantime we enjoy each others company too much to change anything.  heart

It doesn't help that my assistant manager (another idiot) who is 27, is obsessed with having kids.  The type who finds her life empty because she doesn't have them yet, and she is completely obsessed with her niece and nephew and never shuts up about them.  ahdn_paul_01

My sister isn't big on having kids, she's 33.

This woman I work with was with a guy for a few years that didn't want them.  She's not with him now and has a new guy, he's in his early thirties...  seems like she has her claws in deep already so I'm sure It Won't Be Long now.

It's so funny how your perception changes as you age, or at least mine did.  When I was 18 I thought I would have kids by 25.  At 25 I thought I would have kids by the time I'm 30.  That's 5 months away and there is no way.  Maybe by 40 or maybe not at all?  I am just grateful that my husband is on the same page as me.  heart
