I can sing lead but you can hear my voice strain but I prefer back-up or harmonizing with someone (a more Paul and George kind of harmony on All My Loving). But I sing George's parts the best.

I mostly just take lead, although on some songs with the oooohhhh's as backing vocals I'll take those.

I love George's songs, but they're so low and I'm a soprano. So, I usually just mouth the words or go up an octave. Sometimes (like While My Guitar Gently Weeps) he sings high enough that I can sing along.

Generally Paul's parts, I think I have a similar vocal range to him. But it depends.

Love singing the backing vocals on Help!

I actually taught my friend both so we could sing it, I have to say I was pretty pleased with myself. Did the same thing with Twist And Shout with two of my other friends. Seriously, try it. 'tis fun.

I can only sing Ringo's parts, as I'm a baritone. However, I sound almost EXACTLY like him when I sing. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

I'm an alto, so I just tend to sing any of the harmonies.

The part of the howling dog. If you heard me sing you'd be burying your head 6ft in the ground.

Though I like to sing, and I sing my own songs, I find I can't do justice to the songs I like from the Beatles.  One strange phenomenon I notice is that a given melody will sound high, but when I try to match it with my voice, my voice can only seem to hit what seems to be an octave above -- and yet if I try to lower it an octave below, it's obviously way too deep. 

"Hello Goodbye" and "Penny Lane" are typical of this phenomenon.  It's like Paul is singing high, and yet not high at the same time.  I don't get it.

Oh and I usually just sing the lead, unless it's too low. The harmonies are sometimes fun though.

Usually I sing the lead. If the song has particularly exiting backing vocals, like Twist And Shout, Please Mister Postman, Help!, or Octopus Garden, or what, then I'll do those. Sometimes I try to sing both lead and backing vocals.

Now that I think of it -- I forgot all about this.  Back in the late 1980s I was going around singing in open mikes, and there was this one cafe with a high ceiling and about 50 tables and lots of people talking and distraction, so I felt comfortable just sitting in a corner with my friend and I was practicing for my set later that evening -- over and over practicing my cover of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer".  I recall (dimly) that I seemed to have the vocal part down pretty well, it was fun to sing, and the guitar chords weren't that hard.  For some reason, I just stopped singing that song in the last 20 years.  Must pick it up again.

I used to always sing John's parts, but after doing some singing in choirs and learning to sing harmonies from my mother I found that I had a tenor voice (not an extremely high tenor but a tenor nonetheless) and so it naturally gravitated to Paul's higher harmony lines. Some Paul songs are exceedingly hard to sing but I quite enjoy practicing them until I can reach the higher notes.

Lead, unless there someone is with me, then I might sing harmony or vice versa.

I love singing, and not to brag, but I'm a pretty good singer. I like to sing lead and harmonies, and there's not specifically one Beatle whose part I stick to. I'm a soprano, though, so some songs' vocal parts are too low for me. I usually don't sing those songs at all, because it just sounds weird when I sing an octave higher. Or I'll sing the higher harmonies on them.

When I jam with my friends I almost always sing Paul's part. Even when I'm just singing along I typically go for Paul's lead or harmony. Not unlike others, I love trying to stick with just one vocal part for a whole song or album.  Sometimes I'm in a John mood, but I hardly ever go out of my way to sing George or Ringo's parts. (Although, on an unrelated note, I do learn both John and George's guitar parts to a song and play them separately depending on what I feel like.)

I forgot to mention that I used to be in an a capella singing group, in which we did Because/You Never Give Me Your Money. On Because, I sang the harpsichord. :->
