This is a bit of a weird title, but it’s a fascinating topic to me. An example is ‘You Really Got A Hold On Me .’ I don’t really mean those short instances in songs where George and Paul are responding to John’s lead vocal like in Twist And Shout or Help . I was wondering how many occasions took place where George took a lead vocal with somebody. I don’t mean This Boy , Yes It Is , Or Because ; all three of them sang. I’m being specific with George because I know enough examples of John and Paul harmonizing together (She Loves You , From Me To You , Sure to Fall, If I Fell , and potentially many more). There are potential examples on the Live At The BBC album I haven’t fully delved into yet.
I can really only think of my first example, which is why I’m wondering which ones I’m forgetting..
Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

This is a tough one. I know George sang the third verse with Paul during ‘All My Loving ‘ when they performed it live. I have heard that Paul did the high part on the studio version of that song but I don’t know if that has been proven.
The further one travels, the less one knows

Also on the Live At The BBC album, John and George sing “So How Come No One Loves Me.”

I always thought Paul was doing the high-harmony on “Love You To ” but apparently, George is singing with himself. Paul recorded a backing vocal, but it was dropped.
