Think of my position that way:

When someone tells you John is singing "With a little help..." you tell him: "No, that's Ringo!" Why? Because you HEAR it. If the other one tells you "Well, we weren't there, we can't be sure!" you'd answer: "Excuse me, I don't HAVE to have been there, it's on the record, you can HEAR it's Ringo!"

Most people will support your "opinion" because they know Ringo's voice and can tell it from John's. And I don't think you will back down in some way and say "Well, it COULD be John...", you'd be firm in your "opinion", which is in truth NOT an opinion but an OBSERVATION!

 

But these situations are in no way analogous. You keep coming back to this argument, when there is documented proof of Ringo singing (Quotes of Ringo's, Paul's, John's). The only source who was in the studio who (As far as we can tell )has documented the event has said it was John. Even though I'm starting to believe it was Paul, you cannot discount the possibility that you are wrong. No one is perfect.

I CAN hear it's Paul, I KNOW it is him as I KNOW it's Ringo singing WALHFMF because I can HEAR it.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8PaulsBass, your analogies aren't exactly concrete examples for defending your opinion--or, as you said, "OBSERVATION!"--that Paul sang the "aaaaah's" because they can work in favor of those who believe it to have been John. While you may hear Paul, others hear John; therefore, their opinion becomes just as much an observation as yours. You see?

paulsbass said 

I could PERFECTLY well accept and live with the fact that this is John singing, because I love him as much as most of you (just Paul a little more), but am I supposed to deny my senses? 

And I never expected so many hard-core Beatles-fans to get this wrong, influenced by love for John or not. Even Joe is not sure.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I'm pretty sure this topic--and anyone's opinions about it--has nothing to do with favoritism or level of love...I admit that John is my favorite, but even I'm not sure who sang the "aaaaah's". If this thread was based on how much we love John/Paul, wouldn't I have said that John sang them? That set aside, I must admit that I'm a bit offended by your claim that anyone who disagrees with you about it being Paul isn't a hard-core fan...I know you didn't actually say that, but it was implied.

paulsbass said 

It's so obvious it's Paul!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8If it was so obvious, why do we have a twelve-page discussion about it...? I respect that you're so absolute in your observation, but it's a little bit degrading for people who are either on Team John or Team John&Paul--or people like me who don't have a team--to read such forceful posts.

paulsbass said 

Sorry again, and please somebody ask Paul to make an end of it.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I think that's the one thing anyone's said throughout this whole discussion that everyone agrees on lol. a-hard-days-night-john-6

So there isnt two discussions going on for the Olympics Closing Ceremony it has its own thread here.

 

I had a dream last night were i listened to the ADITL "ahh's" and it was very clearly Paul. Not sure if that was a proclamation of fact or due to all the talk here.

I had a very similar dream, it must be in our subconscious. Only difference is that I found out it was both of them in my dream.

If the dream realm cant agree on an answer what hope is there!?

Yeah but according to Rock Band George also plays guitar on this day (and that john plays rythm guitar on maxwell) and that's also not true

Someone already explained that, the same goes for George playing Clapton's part on While My Guitar Gently Weeps, they didn't want to add others in game, but here there were no reason just to give John to sing that part, as both John and Paul are in the game and it's singing, not playing the instrument. They could also at least also animate Paul singing it, but they didn't.

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.

I don't put any validity on what Rockband shows - A Day In The Life wasn't even an original song, it was downloadable content. Which means it's very well possible Paul (and Yoko) just approved it not taking into consideration whethe they has the person singing the ahh's right. I'm not saying that they got it wrong - I'm merely saying I don't put put value on that.
As well, what the majority of people think is also irrelevant; majorities of British citizens thought Churchill was a fear mongering old man whose best days were behind him. They were also very wrong. So majority opinion, really, isn't all that indicative of the truth.
As for the question at hand… I think this might be my last post. I think it's Paul, but I'm very open to it being John, or both. Let's keep it civil.

Edit: Paulsbass - if Paul McCartney, your hero, said John did the A Day In The Life ahh's, would you take his word, or continue in the belief that Paul did them?
