Paul was the major showman and John the major emotionalist. Both versions would be amazing for what each bring to them.

  

Yeah. Paul’s version is all we know, and I do love it. John has plenty of other songs with great vocals. Oh Darling is Paul’s.

I wonder what Paul would have thought if John had done a cover of this song.

He’d have been thrilled! Chuffed.

I continue to dream of a take of the song in which both Paul and John sing the bridge (or at least its repeat) together in unison! Like really howl it out together, as in “You know my NAAME!” or “…Allll/I want/Is you!”, something with that concentrated MacLen-ergy and mccartneylennon-tensity. heart And I continue to dream…

I think it would depend on the circumstances. If John had done a version and made a lot of having done it to prove his opinion that if Paul had had any sense he would have given the vocal to him because his voice was more naturally suited to it, it would have been another bone of contention. At the height of their troubles Paul may well have taken it as an attack on his vocals.

It would have been nice to hear a version of this song with John’s vocals.  Maybe a demo or something exists.

Paul and John’s duet, which is on ‘Anthology 3 ‘, is spectacular; their harmonies are some of the best they did.
