I think it's George.

 

And I really cannot imagine some people make such a big deal out of this. Really, just accept other people's opinions.

Also, I hear the yeah yeah yeah's, but I don't hear the whoo's. Then again, I'm partially deaf.

I bet you everything in the world it's George. I'm completely, 1000% certain it's George. Paul didn't struggle as much to hit the note; he did so very well in Baby's In Black. (ohh how long will it take~) I'm also certain BOTH countdowns before Taxman are George. BOTH!

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

Isn't it known that the actual count in is Paul?

Yeah, it's never sounded like anybody but Paul doing the actual count-in to me.

Strange things have turned out to be true on occasion, however.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

I always thought the yeahs were Paul and the whoas were George, but it could be George all together who knows.

I've listened very closely to the Rock Band .mogg files, and since it has a count-in for each song, it just uses the second count-in, so without all the other various noises amongst the voice, it's easier to determine who it is. It sounded like it was George, with the accent and all. As for WMGGW, I feel like if you isolate the vocal, you can clearly tell it's George. Right afterwards, Paul makes a woosh sort of noise, that George couldn't have made because he had to catch his breath. As for why I posted here, I was on a roll last night. I was all over this forum.

edit: Just listened to Taxman's count-in again, to make sure I was remembering correctly. It really, really sounds like George..

OMG, I've listened to the isolated "Taxman" rhythm track, and you're right (and I was wrong): BOTH count-ins are George!

ERMAHGERD I never even thought of listening to that mogg. file. *slaps forehead*

Just did that. Those oooah oooah ooah bits sound ridiculous, especically when isolated. Anyway, I already was, but am now nearly 100% sure those yeah's are George. I think the whoo's are Paul and then you all of a sudden hear someone else in the background going OAH OAH and I think that's George again.

The bit after that is hilarious xD
