Hey guys, so I've been watching Beatles Rooftop Concert on Youtube and i was very concentrated about the lyrics so I've heard that John very very messed up at Don't Let Me Down,anyway, can somebody explain me that? The part is @ 6:21 

 

Well, you can see that John and Ringo are laughing so i think John planned this "joke". What are your thoughts about it? 🙂

I think maybe he just forgot. Or he had to cough. Or decided to shake things up.

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

Listen to any Beatle concert and I can gaurantee that John sings the wrong words to at least one song every time. He often messed up on Help and Baby's In Black.........all part of the live feel I say!

Well, somewhere I've read about John and in some concert, I don't remember which, john said: "I wanna hold you gland" istead of "I wanna hold you hand" 😀

I think John loved doing ad-lib stuff while singing.

The worst recording I have is when he sang "do you want to hold a penis" during the get back sessions.

If I Fell was occasionally introduced as If I Fell Over. Lennon also referred to A Taste Of Honey as A Waste Of Money.

He said that once in the Rolling Stones' Rock'n'Roll Circus, prior to his performance.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Ok.... Is it just me or do John's vocals resemble Stewie Griffin's voice from Family Guy?! I laugh every time I hear the song because I am imagining Stewie singing.... a-hard-days-night-john-6

I cant't say anything to the stewie thing. I just know his german voice and that's different. Anyway which version do you prefer, the get back version (bootleg), the single version (Past Masters, Blue Album) or the rooftop version (movie, naked). I haven't heard the get back version very often so i can't really say something about it but i think the other 2 versions are both great, i think i like the rooftop version abit more because i think it features closer vocal harmony

The  '69 single b-side version, has more soul & feeling to the recording followed by the rooftop versions (but not the edit on Let It Be Naked). There is a looseness and freedom and joy to the rooptop performances (something missing from many of the Get Back recordings) plus its cool hearing John doing what he always did when singing live, messing up the words and adding in noises and stuff instead  - LIBN stupidly edited those out.  By the get back version i presume you mean the one that Glyn Jones selected for the unreleased Get Back albums - its a little too rough and underperformed. It would have been difficult to mix it in a way to make it sound professional.

I'm talking about the Past Masters version/Blue Album. I haven't heard the Get Back session version.

I like the edit of naked much better than the film version, it sounds much more professionall (that's what i like most about naked) and george martin did always use edits of different take (yeah, for sure naked is not like the original get back album, it sounds very professional and that's awesome (but i think the martin mixes of get back and let it be are the most professional). I think the get back sessions had a very bad luck. You know the best take of get back didn't feature a coda, the best take of let it be featured a bad solo, lennon forgot the lyrics during the best take of don't let me down but george martin did the thing that was best he edited like he had done in all prior years. So in fact i think a complete let it be album produced by george martin would be a very good idea (every song should sound like the single version of gt back and let it be)
