I never get tired of saying this when the subject comes up, but John should've taken "Roll Over Beethoven" for himelf to sing.

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

Now THAT would be interesting... and it DOES have a lot of low notes. However, the "if they only knew-ew-ew" part may have been a strain for him. Besides that (if even it proved a problem) it could have worked.

Love You To probably would have been easier for him; the entire song is easily within his range.

"I'll Cry Instead" would've been perfect for Ringo (he was always good at those country-westernish things) and would've provided him with his missing vocal spotlight on AHDN. Opportunity missed!

Such a shame he missed A Hard Days Night! He was good at country and western (Help! was Act Naturally-done by Buck Owens and the Buckaroos).

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

Not so far tho i think a demo acetate of Do You Want To Know A Secret is reported to exist somewhere and an acetate of a '63 recording of What Goes On came up for auction a year back.

Hadn't really thought about this, but Paul's Concert for George rendition of
For You Blue is absolutely beautiful. I think that could have sounded pretty good. It's still good with George, though.

I just listened to that for the first time.  I definitely agree Paul's version is good -- not sure if it is better, though.  One problem is that Paul tends to be a bit too relaxed when he's live and one wants to know how he would do that song in the studio when he's really serious about the best take he can do for the final cut.
