The [supposed] demo of Paul singing World Without Love, as reported to be getting aired last Sunday, is on Youtube. Some are convinced its real and it is Paul, some not so sure, some think its a fake.

 

Youre thoughts?

 

Sounds like Paul to me.

What's funny is that this song was stuck in my mind yesterday and I was thinking about Pauls demo and if we'll ever get to hear it.

Great find if it's real. Certainly a good fake if it isn't.

Would be fun if he sang it in concert one day.

Has the sound of McCartney. If fake, a damn good fake. If real, a damn good find.

It does sound like McCartney especially at the end he says,  "And that was the tune. "

Sure sounded real to me. That's a hell of a good job faking it if it's indeed fake

Sounds like McCartney to me as well, I'll be surprised for sure if it turns out that this isn't him.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like Paul to me.

Gahh, I'm in love with it. I can't even say how many times I've listened to it.

Hm. The voice itself sounds like Paul to me (except for that rising "allow", which I could almost swear was George!), the phrasing less so. But I'll bet I'm half-consciously telling myself the phrasing sounds wrong because I'm accustomed to the way P&G sang the original. I agree: Either Paul or an excellent imitation.

Incidentally, I heard this while lounging around my mother's swimming pool last summer, and she was surprised when I told her that it was a MacLen composition. Seemed strange that she was unaware, since she'd known the song since it was released. Would DJs have not taken pains to identify the song's exalted authors in '64, or did 16-year old girls just not care (or even realize that songs have writers)? Who knows, who cares…

I agree that it does indeed sound like Paul, and if it's not, somebody did a damn good imitation.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

It is Paul. I don't know if mmm knew when he opened the thread, but the source for it is Peter Asher, brother of Jane, half of Peter & Gordon. He is not going to be passing off a fake as the real thing. It's obviously a short little tape where Paul's showing him the tune.
