I have that too, but I think I made my mind up now. I think the ahhs are John and the ooehs you hear in the background are Paul.

Edit: Damn this makes me doubt it again:

Can we get an additional function on the forum called ignore which means you don't have to see certain threads appear ever?

Every time I see this thread revived, I die a little inside.

^ Same here.
It's pointless speculating about this. We don't know for sure. That's a fact. Even if you think you know, you don't, you don't actually know. The only reasons to keep this topic are a) to prove that we don't completely ignore certain subjects, b) in case anything new does come to light, and most importantly c) to remind ourselves of what a topic should definitely not turn into.

I'm so sorry for adding to this notorious thread but I have to ask. Has anyone asked Paul? Surely he should know? I apologise for not reading though all the posts to see if this has been mentioned (I'm sure it has) I just didn't have the strength!

Don't really blame you for not wanting to look through it all... :D You'll end up wishing you'd never anyway.
Paul can't remember anything - he's been asked a few times.

Having just listened to it in top of the range headphones at ear splitting volume I can conclusively reveal it is in fact Ringo. I'd know that voice anywhere I tells ya. 

Joking aside it is clearly John. Or Paul. The mind truly boggles. Thanks a bunch Beatle Biblers!

It wouldn't help.  The reason this thread is so problematical is that for some posters it has become a matter of belief and not evidence - so at least one of the members of the 'it's Paul' camp have stated they would not accept it even if Paul said it was John (the 'faulty memory' defence).

I think it's ok to say who we think it is, and best to ignore the zealots.

But it was only 46 years ago! And it's not as if they were all taking mind expanding drugs and smoking lots of pot. Wait a minute....

He has been asked? I didn't know that.

Shall we hold a séance and ask John if he remembers?

Now you're talking cbatcu! Although John's memory could be appallingly bad so that might not settle it. I think we all have to accept that this is one mystery that will never be solved and get on with our lives as best we can.

We could just steal all the A Day in the Life session tapes and play them thru. Who's up for breaking into Apple's vault?

Here's how I imagine the seance to go:

Us: John, are you there?

John: one knock. Yeah, whadda ya want?

Us: Who sang the aaahhhsss in "A Day In The Life"? One knock if it was you. Two if it was Paul.

John: 1st knock. 2nd thing that sounds like a knock followed by "Oh, sh*t. I just knocked over a table and set the place on fire. D*mn! Gotta go."

Us: Well folks, now we are left to ponder not only who sang the aaahhhsss but also was it a 2nd knock or just the sound of the table being knocked over.

Ha ha! Brilliant!

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."
