Hey Diddle is a rather basic song written during Ram and rejected from the album. They went to Nashville for the recording of Venus And Mars and overdubbed new vocals and fiddle. Personally i prefer the Ram version as the fiddle gets tiring and seems out of place at times.

It is an obviously incomplete song that would work well in the context of a medley kind of like Mean Mr. Mustard, but as a full song, I can see how it was rejected twice from a Paul solo album. I do however live the somg and fancy learning it on guitar.

I love this song. It may not be incredible, but it is catchy. It kind of reminds me of a sunny, breezy day in the countryside, with the atmosphere it has, if that makes any sense. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I agree, the fiddle is kind of weird and annoying in the Venus And Mars version, but, the vocals are positioned a little better. Overall, I prefer the Ram version, too.

Welp, you sold me with that description! I'm listening now and I can already tell it's going on my "Listening for a Pastoral Holiday (Virtual or Otherwise)" list. heart
