Or look at this video: 

It's pre-remasters (uploaded in 2007), and I don't hear anything.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

It is definitely on the pre-remastered stereo CD – I have it and it's there. It's also definitely in that vid mr. S posted. Try it with headphones. You'll hear it loud & clear.

In the mono version of the remasters, there is a sound at about 3:48 that could be anything – I doubt it's part of the whisper though.

I heard that same little sound on the mono vinyl  at 4:13 (the audio starts very late in the vid) – again, I don't think it's there in mono.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

This might have been mentioned elsewhere, but what about when you mishear lyrics in some songs? Like that whole dialogue between the "crew members" in Yellow Submarine. "Full steam ahead Mr. Boatswain, full steam ahead!" "Full steam ahead it is Sgt.!"

Back to WYWY -- I actually heard it first listening to the 8-track (yep!) on a pair of huge old Koss headphones.  Some of the remasters can mute or eliminate some of the subtle background activity.  I recall hearing the original Yellow Submarine songs on the Songtrack, and while it was a sonic marvel in terms of remastering, some of the more amusing sounds in the fade-out of Only A Northern Song and in the middle of It's All Too Much (both terribly underrated songs imho) are much more muted

 

Another bevy of background goodies can be heard when comparing the MMT version of Strawberry Fields with the Anthology version -- lots of John mucking about in the background and finally proving once and for all that the line is "Cranberry Sauce." Not to mention the freakin' amazing drumming (at its normal speed & pitch) from Master Starkey.

A Beatle belch at the very end of the Past Masters version of "You Know My Name".  This isn't on the longer edit on Anthology, which isn't nearly as engaging as the one on Past Masters (which I think is the original B-side to the "let It Be" single.)

In Helter Skelter at about 1:32 and then at 1:43 theres a weird sound of a toy being squished. I have always wondered if its some instrument or something else...sounds funny.

Help! I need somebody...

This is not so much "Can anyone else hear this?", but rather "Can anyone hear what he says?".
At about 6 to 7 seconds in, behind the lyrics "I told you 'bout Strawberry Fields..." John says something that sounds like "I told you 'bout Bungalow Bill" or "spent Acker Bilk" or something that sounds like a combination of both. I've listened to it ad nauseum through noise cancelling headphones, ear buds, isolating the right channel (which is where it is) and I can not make out what it is.

What say you?
