I like how the added Beatles voices make the song sound full. Plumped up.

What's always interesting about this and "Real Love " is how restrained Paul's bass is. In the Beatles especially in the later years Paul's melodic bass playing was always very noticeable. You barely hear it all in the Anthology songs except in "Free As A Bird " at the end when it gets into the ukelele playing.

It's just a great song. Not Real Love level great, but certainly of a high standard.
I actually like this song a bit more than Real Love .
The Real Love demo from the John Lennon Anthology is one of my favourite songs of all time. I love that Plastic Ono type simplicity and his emotive vocals. But I also like the Beatles version. Sped up vocals aren’t exactly that radical. John played around with similar concepts in the past, eg. Backwards guitar, reversing vocals, etc. The Beatles flourishes give it a different type of poignancy that’s just as powerful. Free As A Bird is probably my pick of the two though. I love how it all clicks together with the added vocals. The lyrics affect me in a bigger way in light of John’s death. He’s now Free As A Bird , and that’s the next best thing to be. The music video is incredible too.
