Totally. Without Ringo, A Day in Life would be blue-meanie. His drums there are just epic.

Wait a second. It can't possibly be Paul. He died in a car accident in 1966. Remember? 😉

That's what's so beautiful about The Beatles. They all sing, and their voices blend together into something unstoppable.

I never would've guessed that Paul was singing that, but now that you mention it, it could be either.

If you completely disagree, just listen to the album Band On The Run by Wings, and Paul's voice changes almost unrecognizably from Jet  to Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five to Helen Wheels. He's amazingly versatile, and was probably trying to embody the surreality of that part of the song with his voice, if  he was singing that part

You seem very keen to cherrypick your evidence. Examples that back up your point of view are held up as truthful, whereas ones that disagree with your initial hypothesis are questioned or dismissed (the Everett one actually seems to be saying Paul did the bridge and John did the transition).

Would any evidence whatsoever convince you otherwise? If Paul, George M, Ringo, or anyone else said it was John, would you dismiss them for having lousy memories? I think it's important to be open minded in these matters.

Yes, the Winn book seems accurate, though I haven't read it in detail. The Everett book is perhaps more detailed in its examinations, and was used by Winn as a source.

Anyway, I'm bored of this discussion now.


 
Sorry, I knew I would make that impression of "cherrypicking".

It's just that it is obviously – at least for me!! – Paul singing, so anyone saying differently is wrong, imvho. Mistakes are possible, as I pointed out, even by the Beatles themselves. So even if Paul would say it was John I would disagree with him (I doubt he would say that). I explained many times why I think that. Compare the parts of the songs I mentioned.

So there is no room for convincing me, I KNOW it's Paul.

If somebody told you, "It's John singing With a little help" and even gave you a quote from an interview, and even if Ringo would deny that he ever did that number, would you believe it? Of course not, because you can HEAR it's Ringo.

The "aaahs" are just a little more difficult to identify, but it's not impossible.

So I admit it wasn't really an open "discussion" for me. I'm just surprised that there seem to be almost only those here who believe to hear John.

And I assure you, I WAS open-minded BEFORE listening to that vocal track. I said many times that after "Love" I wasn't sure it it wasn't John after all. But the vocal track was the prove I needed, now I don't need to open minded anymore. Of course anyone who is now convinced that it's John would think the same way, so we just had to go our ways in peace with a different opinion.

I knew there had to be SOME evidence for my position, and you provided it, thank you for that.

I disagree with your interpretation of Everett, though. "Lennon and McCartney do backing vocals for bridge and transition." Where do you see a hint about who sang what? They both DID vocals on the transition, as I pointed out, and that's what Everett is saying. Btw, what is the bridge excactly?? The middle part? Or is it the same as the transition??

Sorry to bore you, I never thought I'd have to "fight" over this so intensely – and so alone!
