I know, that's why I said that there's no doubt for ME that it's Paul. Wait, didn't this exact same thing happen earlier in the thread?


It does sound more like Paul, but in my mind it will always be John. It's like She Said She Said, which he clearly doesn't say "i've never been born" at least the first two times, so even if all the evidence points to those lyrics, I still don't believe it.

My reconstruction (TV documental style):

(Abbey Road, night, "A Day In The Life" sessions. John is rehearsing his part with his Epiphone Casino(TM), Paul is in the piano (Yes, inside the piano, for acoustic reasons), and ask in a mild voice)

P: Hey, John, can I do the Ahhhs?

J: No! you can't fucking do the Ahhhs!

P: Bloody moustache face! Four eyes! Ouch! (he angrly shut himself inside the piano and the lid knock him out)

(some time later, he open the lid and says)

P: Hey, when I pass out, I had a weird dream about a girl called Lucy in some kind kind of sky that contains a sort of precious stones, good idea for a song! Right?

J: I already wrote it, you idiot!


LOL!!!!!!!!

*snort* 

I like the "Paul is inside the piano" thing. That just reminds me of The Exciting Adventure of Paul on the Floor. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

My kids listened "A Day In The Life" for the first time two days ago.

I told them to listen carefully, because a lot of people thought that this was the Beatles's best song, so they were very quiet and still, listening….

When it ended, they sighted and  they said: "It's SCARY"

- Scary how?, I asked

- TOO INTENSE, mami, TOO INTENSE!!!!!

Too cute children!

And what a spooky mother!

...Maybe some years too early to listen to that song?

2005, The 1967 Beatles track ‘A Day In The Life’ from Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was voted the best British song of all time by music experts. The survey by Q magazine called the track "the ultimate sonic rendition of what it means to be British".

Listen to Good Evening New York City, although he ruins the song by segueing into Give Peace A Chance. I cannot fathom why he thought that would be a good replacement for the final verse and *that* chord.

I'm surprised this topic still receives attention too. There appears to be very little to add beyond opinion masquerading as fact. It's quite repetitive too. Still, if people want to join in it's not my business...

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Thanks for the warm words, I appreciate them
 

As I said, I never thought this would ever turn into – this! I didn't even care that much about those "aaahs" either, and I also haven't been so sure about them. But after listening to that vocal track it's just very hard for me to understand how any Beatlefan could not identify Paul singing.

I'm aware of the problem the kind of forcing facts down other people'S throats (I never wanted to do that or thought I'd have to, I just rejected false information) doesn't make it easier to accept, it's counterproductive.

So I do agree I should let go of this thread as well, since as I said before, everything has been said.

Sorry again.


No problem PaulsBass. Again, this shows you're a nice person.
 

I know that you find hard to believe that people can't identify Paul's singing the "ahhs". But some people believe in their truths, even if it's wrong. I know a person who describes the Beatles as John Lennon and his chorus. I mean, probably Marcelo or Zig will say "Hey that's true! John was the leading singer and the other 2 were only singing the chorus to him!!" but I think that most of Beatle fans can understand that Paul and George were more than that. And it seems that no matter what's told to this fan, he will insist on his idea, calling it "The truth about the Beatles". 

 

We're way too many Beatle fans to have a same opinion, and that's what makes the forums interesting and fun. And with this nice response from you, I might change my attitude towards the topic. maybe, maybe in a few weeks I might pick up my headphones and listen to different versions I have of a Day in Life and see just for fun who sings the ahhs. Maybe I discover my suspects : It was Ringo. a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

 

Just kidding. Just don't push it PaulsBass... ok??

 

(Zig and Marcelo, it was just an example, don't start a thread named "The Beatles named should've been Long John and the Beetles" a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-paul-4a-hard-days-night-george-1a-hard-days-night-ringo-5
