I have no problem with Paul singing anyone's songs. For that matter, I have no problem with Ringo singing any songs written by John.

Actually, it would be kind of funny hearing Paul sing How Do You Sleep?? in concert.


Ha!  That would be great!  Somewhere I read that Paul's response to "How Do You Sleep??" was "On a big pile of money," but that's probably just folklore....

Brilliant!

I don't know if it's true either but it does sound like something he would say. It fits right in with the Beatles' cheeky sense of humor.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I wish I could have that same luxury.... 😀

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

I take no particular offense to Paul singing "
Give Peace A Chance", just think it's quite curious and questionable aesthetically - "GPIC" isn't really a very good song at all! (As John would be the first to admit, no doubt.) Why not do his own "Pipes Of Peace" instead?

Another dead thread but here I go… I agree with you, @Von Bontee: very true. And Pipes Of Peace is a masterpiece.

I don't like when he sings Lennon's songs like 'Day In The Life', 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and 'Please Please Me

I miss Lennon's vocals in the songs. I really don't like that McCartney tried to change the songs he felt were more his from 'Lennon & McCartney' to McCartney & Lennon. That really pissed me off!!

The following people thank Inner Light for this post:
