One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

"Anna(Go to Him)." You know what I'm talking about.


Um, no I don't, sorry!  That's one of my very favourite of John's vocals – in fact, his ravaged-by-sickness "Please Please Me" voice thrills me to pieces throughout.


 

Seriously! Why does everyone hate on "Anna"? The best part is the aahs with the "all of my life, I've been searchin' for a girrrlll…". It's great! a-hard-days-night-george-8

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Umm.... Because we don't like it? Because the backing vocals sound sea-sick? Because it's irritating? 

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

Exactly. Like it's "Mr. Moonlight." 

You LIKE "Mr. Moonlight?" (backs up very slowly) 

Um, let's see. Common ground, common ground. Do you like the Abbey Road medley?

I like Mr. Moonlight, it's probably the weirdest track they ever did because of that lame organ solo. It sounds like grocery store music.

Eh, it just gets under my skin. And not in the "Hey Jude" way.

No, I've made 150+ posts here about how much I like "Anna", "Mr. Moonlight" and "Revolution 9" and hate everything else! [/snarky]

Actually, you know what's even better than the Abbey Road medley? The Abbey Road medley with "Her Majesty" restored to its rightful spot in between "MMM" and "PP" using audio software! (You know you're hardcore when...etc.)

Erm... Haven't done that. I'll have to listen to it sometime. Anyone know if there's a YouTube video?

Perhaps it's a very short backing-vocal, but it is one nonetheless!

I like in The Inner Light at the end of the song, when George sings "arrive without traveling, see all without looking" and the boys chime in on the last, but you can predominately hear Paul: "do all without doing."

Tongue, lose thy light. Moon, take thy flight… see ya, George!

Haha, that's the most perfunctory J&P contribution ever! I love the thought of George hauling them into the studio to sing four words.

I'll second the general consensus that "Rubber Soul" is THE album, harmonies-wise. And I'll also echo the general "Baby's in Black" approval. And the reverberating overtones when John and Paul sing "I can't hiiiiiiiiiide!" are spine-chilling.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I learned a while ago that, for shows, Paul sang the low part there on "I Want To Hold Your Hand" instead of John. a-hard-days-night-paul-2 Fun fact there. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Didn't know that. Interesting.
