 If there is no definitive answer to a question regarding fact, why continue the thread?

Because it's a discussion forum. We may not know the answer, but shutting down all access to the question prevents us from ever getting closer to the truth, or putting forward reasonable and intelligent debate, or changing people's opinions, or even making them simply think. All of those things are better than just going "screw it, we'll never know" and locking the thread.

I am also in that camp - listened to it this weekend in surround sound. I forget which track was for which singer, but for the sake of argument (how apropos for this thread) let's say John's voice is on the left track.

John's vocals are in the left track. After Paul's "woke up..." part in the right track, the ahs start in that same track. They then fade the vocals to left, right, left; at which point John's vocal starts in the left track again.

See, another proof it's Paul.

He starts the aaah on "his" channel, then it's fading over to John, who continues with the LAST VERSE!

Ah well, I tried logic before, but hardly anyone would listen...

Actually, that was me trying very hard to give those in the Paul camp every benefiy of the doubt. Nice try though.a-hard-days-night-george-10

If it wasn't both of them edited to sound like they were taking turns, then I hear more John than Paul. I'm just telling you what I hear. 

I very much respect your opinions on why you feel it is Macca. I know he is your favorite, but don't think that is the reason why you are so adamant. I really believe that you believe it is Paul. Fair enough.

I will ask that, unless you build a time machine and go into the recording studio as it was happening, you stop telling people definitively that they are wrong. I was not there, you were not there. I hear one thing, you hear another. I realize there is a chance that I may be wrong. You don't. Therein lies the rub. And it does rub people the wrong way when you tell them they are wrong when this is pure speculation. This thread should be fun to discuss. Telling people they are just plain wrong and that they are not using common sense or logic on a matter of pure speculation is not fun.

By all means, please continue to tell us why you feel you are right. By that same token, please stop telling people they are wrong. They might not be.

Whether it's Paul or John in the lead, I think what is certain is that 

 

a. Paul's verse wasn't recorded at the same time as the "ahhh" part, or

b. they cut the tracks and "pasted" them together again

 

Also, there's an interesting sound effect, or what should I call it, at the very beginning of the "ahh" part- it sounds like someone is moving faster than speed and makes a sort of explosion, if you know what I mean

And why would they record those "uuhhhUUhhh" things in the back if only to drown them in the mix? I don't think there's a second track for them, those backing vocals could even be sung to the same microphone as the lead singer, which makes me think...

Why would it be impossible that they should take turns in singing? They may have adlibbed that part, John and Paul, one of then ahhh:ing while the other one hoots, and then they could change places

Some people claim that the lead singer is Paul because he sounds exactly the same as in Love Rita. I strongly disagree. I never had any problems discerning his voice in that song. And if we take another example, Let Me Roll It, which is Paul's solo piece including heavily distorted and reverberated voice- but I can still distinguish him, even in the higher notes.  Funny though, critics have said that he sounds like Lennon in that one. That might be, but he certainly doesn't sound like the person doing the "ahhs", although you might expect some similarity considering the artificial effect. Of course, this doesn't mean it cannot be Paul, but his ahhs is a performance he never did before that and never did again a-hard-days-night-john-7 

I would be relieved to find out that the singer is actually George ( really, there are a lot of people who think so)

I thought this too. Good argument.

I wouldn't bank on it being George at all. The likelihood of John and Paul giving him that part to do seems very small, not to mention that George's presence was hardly felt at the Pepper sessions (and I don't really feel his presence on A Day In The Life at all). Plus he doesn't seem nearly as likely to reach those high, powerful notes as the others, not very characteristic of his singing voice.
