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!

Whats really grinding my gears right now is my school's bookstore. It never fails, long lines (at one of my schools), giving out incorrect books, or today, saying they haven't received my books. I realize there are a lot of students, but geez do your job and don't blame it on us.

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!"

^^ It seems you have quite an idiot for a boss, LHL. If you don't want kids then you're under no obligation to have them. It's your body and your life, and a baby is a big commitment! If anything, I'd say you were selfish if you had them without really thinking about it or knowing that you're not 100% sure, or something. As you said, there's 7 billion people on this planet, soon there won't be enough room and resources for us all.

Indeed, it's your own choice and besides, it's really none of his business why you would or wouldn't like to have children! 

Also, you're only about 29 right? Still plenty of time left to decide.

Don't let that guy make you feel bad, he obviously isn't very smart. It's not selfish to not want to have kids; it''s selfish to have kids you don't really want.

Yes, he is an idiot, lol.  I agree, it would be more selfish to NOT take it seriously and just go and have them.

You got it, I am 29.  Like they say now, 40 is the new 30!  My mom had me when she was 32.

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.

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.

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.

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

Why doesn't she have them yet? No potential father in the picture?

I love children and I would love to have some later, but not until I'm 30 or so. I think that's still young enough and about the perfect age. I've always been quite sure I would want to have children when old enough, so I think it will happen, unless I don't have a steady job at that point (or a guy. I'm quite scared I'll end up being alone and become a bitter catlady). My sister and I are very different on that. She hates children.

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

It really bothers me when people ask you "when are you having kids?"  For me, it pretty much started on my wedding day!  Ridiculous.  I also think it is NOT selfish to not have children.  I, myself, have 4 children.  There was never a time that I can remember that I didn't think I'd have children.  I always knew I wanted them.  One of my best friends, however, knew she never wanted to have them..and she never did...and she has no regrets.

You are all correct...children are a HUGE responsibility and very costly.  I have had people go the "other way" and say "You have FOUR children?  Isn't the world over-populated enough?"  I get that point of view..I really do.  It's a personal choice between the woman & her partner.  I have zero regrets in having my children.  Each of them are amazing people, that I am proud to know & love :)   You all would like them too...they are all Beatle fans and all 4 can play the guitar and Beatle songs!  See?  I did a good job raising them (so far!)

I even think it is a personal question asking someone when/if they are having kids?  If someone is rude enough to ask that...I would suggest saying something like, "that's a personal decision between my husband & I".  THAT'S IT.  They need to bugger off! a-hard-days-night-george-10

One of my pet peeves is the "no partner = cat lady" stereotype, although my aunt never married and she hasn't had a boyfriend for a long time, and she's always had cats...

I would like to have kids by the time I'm thirty. My parents were both in their early twenties when I was born, and I have always loved that. The best thing for me, though, is that I got to know all of my great-grandparents on my mom's side, and they were always my favorite people. If I had kids, I would want them to have the same type of relationship with their great-grandparents, that I had (have) with mine. 

Ever since I was little I have felt like if I never do have kids, then my life is just meaningless. It sounds a bit dramatic, but I have just always wanted kids. I don't think the lives of those who never have kids are meaningless, though, it's just with myself that I feel that way. 

 

Anyways, a pet peeve of mine is when people put babies in jeans, or anything with a button, really. Occasionally it will be okay, but like ninety percent of the time, the pants just don't fit right and it looks stupid. 

Also, when people purposely drown their kids in clothes way too big. My dad and his wife used to do that to my sister and I hated it. At two weeks old, they were dressing her in clothes that were 3-6 months. Putting her in clothes that actually fit made them nervous.
