@Dark Overlord, it has been brought up on this site before that Paul uses orchestras when he play TLAWR live despite disliking the addition of the orchestra in the recording. The spectulation is that he does that because that is how the official version of the song is and it is how most know the song.  

It seems to me that major differences are that the Spector version has a choir of 14 female voices and harp notes at the end.  Appropriate orchestration is fine, but the inclusion of a female choir and harp ending spoil the song for me.  I enjoy this version by Paul.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

I respect what Paul says about the original intent of the song. But I still enjoy the LIB version.
