7 months since this thread has been touched! The talk of who sang…. scared people away, I think.
I've noticed something recently, in 'Day Tripper', at the end, Paul says ''yeah'' after saying ''day tripper'' the first time. I don't think he was meant to do that because he says it four times and he doesn't say it the third time. Don't know if that makes a lot of sense, but hey.
''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

As part of a promotion for streaming Paul's concert at the high school, Yahoo Music posted an interesting article on You’ve Got to Hide That Flub Away: Finding the Beatles’ Secret Messages and Mistakes. [xposted at the news thread]

Watching McCartney's Unplugged concert on Youtube. He just can't get the lyrics to "We Can Work It Out" although he tries a few times while maintaining his good spirits. Sounds perfect on the CD, so he must have re-recorded it.

Thanks for posting ITSWD. Great to see Paul so relaxed and having a laugh whilst performing. Nowadays such a flub would immediately be put down to being 71 and result in some folks elsewhere online saying it was proof he needs to retire as he was embarrassing himself. Funny how times change.
The Unplugged setting is the kind of thing that would suit the desire of some of us to see a more intimate Paul concert where he performed more of the songs he normally leaves out of his set and less of the standard tracks that are performed frequently and seem to be treated as must-do's.

I know there are entire web sites out there devoted to cataloging every single slip-up, goof, mistake, etc. in the Beatles catalog, but I'd like to know if you have any particular favorites? There are a couple I can think of right off the top of my head, where I hear the song, I know there's a mistake in it, but it's become so much part of the song that I actually look forward to it (and get disappointed when some tribute band forgets to include it).
- On "If I Fell," on the second time through the bridge ("And I would be sad if our new love was in vain"), at about 1:48, Paul's voice cracks on the last high note and he drops out early. (Only on the album release, AFAIK – they fixed it in the movie and in the soundtrack release.)
- On "Revolution 1" there's that extra beat thrown in near the end, around 3:25, which was an editing mistake
- On the single version of "Let it Be," during the last verse ("I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me"), around 2:58, Paul hits a bum chord on the piano and quickly has to resolve it.
Obvious mistakes, but like I said, they've become part of those songs now, and it's hard to imagine those tunes without the slip-ups.

I always liked the version of Day Tripper where the guitar drops out for a millisecond in the third verse. When they fixed it on "1" and subsequent releases, it didn't sound right. It still doesn't.
Also, in Dizzy Miss Lizzy, the main guitar lick of the song is "lost" in the second verse (I think), until George (or whomever) finds the "right place" to play it again.

On the Twist and Shout solo, John and George (I think) are playing it and one plays a wrong note at the end that is higher which I quite like.
"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."
