I've been listening to Paperback Writer and I think that's one of Paul's finest vocals. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I listened to the White Album a couple of days ago and was struck by how incredible Lennon's vocals were. I think he reached a peak on that record.

Was that before or after the pizza & wine?a-hard-days-night-john-5

Yeah, when you mentioned you were opening B-day presents to the strains of Yer Blues, it reminded me of John's "wooh!"'s in that song. As in, "...if I ain't dead already - wooh! - girl you know the reason why."

I really enjoy his louder lyrics...YB, Twist And Shout, Money, etc... It's as if he's singing/shouting/growling at the same time. Jim Morrison had the same quality IMO.

I love George's vocal on Something (Anthology 3), and on Long Long Long.

Zig - before and after. On songs such as Happiness Is A Warm Gun and I'm So Tired he goes from subtlety to soaring in the space of a second. Just stunning.

I love John's vocals on Happiness Is A Warm Gun. It's probably my favorite Beatles song. I love his haunting vocals on Cry Baby Cry, too, even though he claimed to dislike the song.

Okay, my favorite Lennon vocal: Dear John from the John Lennon Anthology. Absolutely haunting.

I totally agree with you. I can't go through that album without being amazed by John.

My favorite part of that song is the bit when he screams “I’m GOING INSANE!”

I was thinking about "I wonder should I call you, but I know what you would do". The melody is wonderful.

I always sing at the top of my lungs… "Sir Walter Raleigh he was such a stupid GIT!"  Love it.  heart

 

That's when I can't just hate Yoko. She truly inspired John. yoko-ono-01

His "ooooooohhh yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh" from Glass Onion always shocks me, especially coming off the tenderness of Dear Prudence. And his vocals on Sexy Sadie are just awesome, try and sing it, it's like impossible.

I thought about Sexy Sadie as well Gnik - nice one. It is very hard to go from a low tone to a falsetto like he does in that song.

I love John's "growly" voice on the italicized area. 

"Iiiiiiiiiiiiii thought that you would realize that if I ran away from you, that you would want me too." 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

You have all made excellent points since my last post. I agree with every one of them! Seriously, now I have an itch to listen to some good Lennon vocals. Going for “Good Morning Good Morning” right now. 🙂 I love his voice in that song.

I’m also going to throw “Dig A Pony” into the mix of good songs up for discussion, for the John/Paul chorus harmonies. Love it.

Dig A Pony is a good one. I'll throw You've Got To Hide Your Love Away into the mix and say it can't be beat, unless someone can convince me otherwise. a-hard-days-night-george-10

After I took it, it opened my eyes. We only use one-tenth of our brain. Just think what we could all accomplish if we could only tap that hidden part. It would mean a whole new world. If the politicians would take LSD, there wouldn't be any more War or poverty or famine.
