I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but I love the vocalizations John does about 1:17 into his demo of "If I Fell."  It reminds me a lot of the ones he does after the line, "Living for today" in "Imagine."

Here's that demo:

Ringo's little drum play before the vocals come in on some of the BBC recordings of You Really Got A Hold On Me.

Kudos to meanmistermustard for two excellent youtube finds.  I''ve really got to stop listening to all my stuff on disk and surf youtube more often.

John sure sounded hesitant in that early rehearsal.  So hesitant I thought it was Paul, ha. I listened to the 1964 Hollywood bowl version, trying to find a 'live' performance similar to the rehearsal.  The difference, of course was amazing.

I totally agree that he stole that little vocal run (which was kindof out of place in If I Fell), and I would swear it's the same melody and a very close if not the same key, note for note, from the one in Imagine.

And to bring this somewhat back on topic, at the 1:15 mark in the 1964 Hollywood Bowl show (If I Fell), for some reason Paul drops out of the harmony for a line ("would you to love you").  Just another Beatles' quirk, or maybe write it off to a huge audience screaming at them, but they were right on point the rest of the song. 

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

If we're including solo stuff the part in Live And Let Die right after Paul says the title for the first time... Especially in one live video, there's an explosion, it's amazing! Ill link the vid later if I remember.

Paul's "Yeah!!" at the end of "Twist And Shout". Not really for a musical reason, I mostly just love the way that album is bookended with extraneous extramusical stuff...from the "One two three FAW!" to "Yeahh!", and there we have the debut of the finest rock 'n roll band (and ROCK) band any of us will ever hear, even the young kids.

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

The little instrumental groove right at the end of "You Never Give Me Your Money" before the beginning of "Sun King"

Near wetsroosas, the repeated "1234567 All good children go to heaven..." line at the end of You Never Give Me Your Money gets me.

The rolling "r"s of "bright" in It's Only Love. Gets me every time.

The one that grabbed me today (from memory...I wasn't listening to it at the moment) was when John sings at the end "Help me! Help me!"

I started thinking about John asking someone to help him learn how to help himself.

The ending of "Get Back" where John says: "I would like to thank you on behalf of our group and I hope we pass the audition" or something like that

In No Reply right after "i saw you walk in your door" there is a little guitar bit which is awesome (around the 45 second mark).

How the descending guitar comes in before the choruses in You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

Yes I wait for that part every time haha. Accidentally did it myself a few weeks ago when the sun was in my eyes but no one noticed (or offered me sunglasses a-hard-days-night-john-7)
