He's referring to this:

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....l-or-john/

The topic is something of a joke around here, and gets alluded to in other threads occasionally.

Welcome to the forum! :)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Thanks Von Bontee, and thanks for the link.  (I just re-listened to "A Day In The Life" and it seems clear to my ears that all the "Ahhhs" are John's.  If it is Paul, he's doing as good an impersonation of John as Kevin Spacey does of Johnny Carsona-hard-days-night-john-3...)

 

I haven't read through that topic thread yet, but my curiosity will probably get the better of me!

Well, I just read the first page of it -- then I noticed there are FIFTEEN PAGES!!!  No way, I'm reading all that about that one tangent.  (What should irk those who feel passionately about it all the more is that there is one person who can settle the question once and for all, still alive!a-hard-days-night-paul-11)

Just when I thought you were on MY side...paul-mccartney

You don't need to go through all the pages, I explain all you need to know on page one, everything else is more or less redundant. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

I know someone who asked about that on Paul's Facebook site but never got a reply.

Maybe someone should try on twitter??

Another user tried that with George Martin.

paulsbass,

The argument you articulate on page one is structurally sound, but it's not definitive.  Without the actual proof from McCartney or Martin, this debate resembles innumerable political or theological debates where both sides seem to be arguably possibly right, in a close but no cigar kind of way.  At any rate, the crux of your argument I think is the "chest" singing of Paul, which I agree he has; I just don't hear it sufficiently in any part of those "Ahhhs".  Voice amplification and close proximity to the mic also helps -- indeed,John's voice in most of his lines has a degree of depth and power that sounds artificially amplified to my ears.  There's something else about the difference between John and Paul's voices:  John even when young had a kind of "old man" quality to his voice, which Paul never had -- and I hear that "old man" in those "Ahhhhs" right from the initial point all the way through to when they fade.

Here's the bass thread

http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....-v-george/

OK, thanks. I think my reason in the final post on that thread still stands. IIRC there were quite a few threads like that at the time, which ended up as stupid slanging matches involving people who didn't know when to walk away. It was ruining the forum. I'm always grateful when people contribute to this site to make it better, but nobody would bother if it was full of bickering and arguing, especially if those arguments have nothing to do with The Beatles.

I haven't re-read all of that thread, but if you want to start another on that topic go right ahead.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
