Pff what are you dumbasses talking about? It's definitely Yoko.

 

Nah, it has always sounded like John to me and I'm pretty sure it is. Don't really get why people would think it's Paul. Also don't get why some people make such a fuss out of it.

Paulsbass, aside from the trollish Mr. Big, nobody was attacking you for your opinion (which I happened to share, if I recall correctly), but rather for the way in which you refused to allow anyone else's opinion equal time! It is not obvious that Paul is doing it, otherwise this thread wouldn't be 16 pages long. And is not as simple and clear-cut as saying "2+2=5, obviously" – it's more like saying 2+2.99=4.99, where everybody else is hearing 5. As for the vicious attacks "mostly against you", well, in your last post you suggested that everybody who disagrees with you is insane! So take that into consideration, too.

OK, I'm sorry I misunderstood your "sane" comment.

Mr. Big certainly was irritating, wasn't he? :) No argument about that!

Long John Silver's video clip has a lot of interesting information, but unfortunately does not fully resolve the question of this thread.  There is, however, one frame of text in that video which implies that Paul "dropped" in his entire middle section and that it had to be coordinated just right in order to end before John's "Ahhhhs".  No citations are offered to prove this is so, alas.

I notice he quotes Emerick a lot in his videos, is there any mention about this in Emerick's book?

This thread is still alive? Wow. Anyway, I'm kind of starting to hear Paul in the "ahhs", but I wouldn't be overly surprised if it's John like I thought in the beginning but I think it's really weird, anyway, the ghost voices in the back. Yes, they do sound like John. But why on earth would they record this "ahhh" by Paul, and then overdub these faint John screams, only to make them drowned in the final mix?

Those ahhhs are by John and those faint ooohhs in the background are by Paul imo.

And nahh, I stopped reading this topic after 3 pages or so, because people kept coming up with the same ''arguments''

paulsbass, in case you see this, it's good to have you back (albeit briefly). Do drop by again. Don't let an internet argument put you off – nothing is real.

Haha – can't help myself, since folks had to sidetrack my 'Y Not' necro to continue this argument, I had to pop in here to give my 2-cents worth.

My son and I have been listening and it sounds like John to us.

I'm not going to state categorically it IS John since we don't have the audacity to suggest that we would disbelieve Paul even if he said it was John; this is, in spite of what some of you have been trying to claim, a matter of interpretation.

Apologies Joe, I note that you were bored with this one around page 3 :)

Please, this thread is an unhappy one. Leave it alone. Unless Joe decides to disagree, I have locked this topic.

No, let's leave it open. Otherwise people might start duplicate threads and I'd lose the will to live.

I have nothing to say about the debate, it is better to leave that matter to those experts since I am not really good in knowing john and paul's range of voice. Either Paul or john sang that "ahhh's and wo's. I just loved to hear them singing. And more importantly, it doesn't matter if john was trying to copy the tone of voice of paul. Even if it is hard for john to get that sound's ahhh's like paul, still it is sounds really good.

Lovely response, beatlesfansunite, and welcome to the forum. If you would like to introduce yourself, there is a thread for that in "All Together Now". We are a pretty good bunch overall. Welcome to the ride!

I never really thought about who it was, I've always assumed it was John, but then it started sounding like Paul, and now it's like half the time it sounds like Paul and the other half it sounds like John. And I don't think this is an unhappy thread, I think it's one of the happiest in this whole forum. It just shows how passionate some people are about The Beatles. Beautiful.

For months I've been wary about this topic!! HA!  ahdn_paul_02

Until I joined Beatles Bible, I ALWAYS assumed the "ahhhh's" were John.  Never thought it was anyone but him.  Since coming here…and reading all this and then listening again and again…I can see where it does sound somewhat like Paul too.  With all the overdubbing, looping, etc. they did, it could be hard to know?

But, for the record…I am going back to my original analysis and saying it's John!! a-hard-days-night-john-1

I have that too, but I think I made my mind up now. I think the ahhs are John and the ooehs you hear in the background are Paul.

Edit: Damn this makes me doubt it again:
