I love the BBC performances (one below)

but deary me what was Paul thinking at Decca. His over-performance is hilarious in how awful it is.

Probably nerves. 'Oh, we've got to really impress this chap so we can get our record deal...' and subsequently overcompensated.  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I know they were very nervous but I wonder if John was looking at him whist they were singing at the mic thinking "what the **** are you doing!!?""

Maybe he was trying to show off the versatility of his multi-colored voice. Maybe?

Wow such a big difference in the performances. I love the way Paul sings "thang" though. They sound so much more assured on the '64 version.
