I was just wondering, am I the only one who finds it hard to distinguish Elton John's and John's vocals in this song? Everytime I hear it I try to pick out who is who, but for some reason I find it really difficult a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Does anyone else have this problem? Or should I go get my hearing checked? a-hard-days-night-george-6

thanks apple01

I used to be confused about it, but then after I got more intto Elton's music I could! A'm pretty sure that you must not be called the only one with that problem, but maybe you need you're heaing checked anyhowdy!!!a-hard-days-night-george-10

It's a pretty similar harmony but I can separate the vocals. You do need to know some Elton John to distinguish.

I think Elton's voice is in the back. I always thought it was just some back singer to emphasize Lennon's voicea-hard-days-night-john-5 I like Elton in his early career but can't stand his later songs

Not realy tried to tell who is who vocal-wise. Im not a big fan of Johns middle period but i heard this again recently and it sounded a lot better than i remembered it.

 

And yes Elton John started out good but like most singers his later period is not something i have any desire to seek out. For me only I Want Love and This Train Dont Stop Here are any good.

The song has always sounded speeded up to me.....maybe in more ways than one!!

Thanks everyone, I guess I'll just have to become more familliar with Elton's voice.

What would you think some of his best songs or albums would be?

They sort of sound like they're imitating each other ! Weird song...never liked it much but it was pretty fundamental in JL history.a-hard-days-night-john-2
