It May Be depressing but I Think He was able to write his solo songs to match that, but he doesn't have that luxury if he plays I'm Down

He still sounds good though. And he sings it in the original key.


The YouTube description says this is taken from the Good Evening NYC DVD, but my copy has this song intercut with footage of The Beatles playing it at Shea. What was the US edition like? Did it have The Beatles on it too?

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

Does Paul still sound good on the I'm Down video – for sure. Can you hear his voice has aged? For sure.

It is actually a bit easier to do the rockers than the ballads – because as long as you can push your voice – and his voice is still strong – just aged – as long as you can push you'll get a lot of air moving. A rocking tune requires a different tone – raspy is good then and you're pushing the upper parts of your vocal chords and throat.

In a ballad it's all tone, tone, tone. That's when all the warts are going show.

Thank you Evan!

I'd return the favour, but you know what happens when I try to post smileys…

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

It was so-so until Paul was on. I jumped in my chair and said "Yay!" like a girl when I saw him. *drops head on her desk* God. I'm worse than a Robert Pattinson fan. a-hard-days-night-paul-2

 

The mini harmonica is fun!!! Thank you!!
