After listening to the isolated and White Album tracks, I still think it's George. I don't want to get into an argument with paulsbass again (I believe I have before), but maybe this isn't so obvious to everyone. Maybe it's good to discuss things that may seem so obvious. I will agree with you that the end is special.

Well at least with respect to "All You Need Is Love" it's easy:

Paul and John BOTH sing "She loves you yeah, yeah, yeah." See for yourselves:

This question is very similar to who coughed in the beginning of Taxman. In both cases, the Beatles probably don't remember and/or care. George is obviously the person who coughed, but some people may not know.

And I Love Her - George stole it with the riff so lets not go down the route of Paul was the greatest ever and the others were behind his awesomeness and holy glow. Sorry but this Paul is great and did everything good in the Beatles gets right up my nose, heck it pisses me off.

John's kickass piano intro for Ob-La-Di took what was a neverending borefest trudge for the other 3 and made it what it was. But more than likely Paul whispered it to John in the toilets.

And just becuase you hear Paul Paulbass doesnt mean you are 100% correct and should be so condescending. Yours is opinion, same as anyone else who posts. But we shouldnt dare to suggest its anyone but Paul - how could it be anyone else?

Who said that? Did I? I don't think so. Read my posting.

That IS a good example for a scene stealing moment!

I tried to explain my feelings. When I know I'm right it's hard to accept other opinions.

It was sarcasm but your posts imply it especially in these topics when anyone says it wasnt Paul, take a look at the AGITL ahhh topic or the one where it ended up quoting radio playlists from the last 40 years, something about Michelle or the like. They all go the same way.

How do you know youre right? Did you read Paul or anyone else confirm it was him? No you listened to it and came to the conclusion it is Paul. Others listened to it and heard George. There is so far no definitive answer so have a bit of courtesy in how you reply to peoples opinions, dont say "No problem. While you're free to do so, it's still Paul." especially in these type of threads.

I was obviously aware of the sarcasm, but I think it was uncalled for.

And if you dare and re-read just page 1 of the monster thread, you'll see that I never, EVER intended it to go that way. A certain other poster came up with ridiculous claims, and I rebuffed them, simple as that.

I'm aware of the fact it sounds condescending, but I can't help it when I'm 110 % sure I'm right.

There are other songs where I'm uncertain and even have been wrong about in the past (I believed Come together has Paul in the harmonies, but when I read it was only John I could totally accept it).

I used to think they hired a guest singer for Lady Madonna, because that voice didn't sound like any of them. That was when I was about 14, in 1988.

I've heard WMGGW for the first time in 1992, and from this first time on I always thought it was Paul, and the more I knew about them the more sure I was.

I have an exceptionally well analytic hearing and I obsessively trained myself on their voices. The Sgt Peppers booklet was a great help, since for the first time then I could read who was the singer and match that information with the voices. And later I discovered all of Paul's different voices, and John's different styles of singing.

Some backing vocals are still tough to analyse, but I think I got most of them nailed down.

When I'm uncertain I will always admit it, and believe me, this is NOT, in ANY way about Paul being "the best".

I love all four of them. But I get pissed when some Lennonistas or George-followers DENY Paul his accomplishments.

And why should I freaking care if George would sing that part? Good for him, good for the song!

But he's not. It's Paul.

End of story.

 

When is a fact not a fact? When it's an opinion. 200% sure of that. I've always thought it was Georgie, but only 90-95% sure of that. When even Beatles get facts wrong about their career, who am I to say I'm right and you're wrong? Just an opinion.

paulsbass's interesting remark about how he once thought "Lady Madonna" could not have been sung by any of the 4 Beatles reminds me of a quality of Paul's vocals that's unique -- I will start a topic on this in the Paul section.

It's understandable, but I think you're putting too much emphasis on the notion that they are denying Paul something. Nobody ever claimed that Paul was any less cooler for not doing the "yeahs" at the end of this song. People are just stating who they think it sounds like, and therefore who they think it is, and there's no need to really defend Paul so vehemently when nobody has attacked him. If another poster says "I think it's George," then you step in to correct them every time. But disagreements arise because you are going out of your way to correct them, rather than just leaving them to think whatever they want and let yourself do the same.

I respect your championing of Paul, and I'm glad there are people as passionate as you around to make sure that he gets his credit and due for the important role he played in the band (apologies for my being snappy earlier in the thread). But if you know it's Paul, there's not much point stepping in to remind everyone that they are wrong.

I don't think this needs to be levelled specifically at Paul-lovers; people do the same about John, and the same about George, and maybe some people about Ringo (although I haven't encountered this phenomenon). To be honest I'm sorely regretting having started this thread, I showed a lack of judgement in making it when obviously these matters were going to arise. I think I'll just forget my debate with my friend (he's probably forgotten it anyway).
