Talking of this track in the 'Revolver' thread reminded me of the vocals only which are well worth hearing. Ringo gets criticised for his singing (harshly) but he's great on this; it really sounds as if he's singing it to a gathering of kids on his own except for a few mates helping out on the chorus and adding sound effects to heighten the experience for them.

The mother of my gal pal in high school LOVED Ringo. She couldn't figure out why they wouldn't let him sing more country songs. She called him "Wrinkle". I love his voice and I always lock in when he's interviewed on TV.

Thanks for posting those vocals, mmm. I always listen for Ringo yelling "cut the cable!...cut the cable!" @ 1:40 ever since I heard him talk about it. If memory serves, he said he was standing in the doorway behind him in the pic below, to get the right amount of natural echo.

Finally listened to the rest of the '1' remixes today. Personally i prefer the '96 remix that was on the 'Real Love' single; the effects are way up in the mix and are so cool and Ringo's spoken intro is fantastic.

"We love it. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15"

I really enjoy this one.  It's a nice, colorful, pleasant, catchy song with a cool but cordial oceanic atmosphere.  I couldn't imagine anyone besides Ringo singing this one.

From the Rolling Stone Lennon interview, describing the end of the Beatles' first acid trip:

This seemed to go on all night. I can't remember the details. George somehow or another managed to drive us home in his mini. We were going about ten miles an hour, but it seemed like a thousand and Patty was saying let's jump out and play football. I was getting all these sort of hysterical jokes coming out like speed, because I was always on that, too.

God, it was just terrifying, but it was fantastic. I did some drawings at the time, I've got them somewhere, of four faces saying "We all agree with you!" I gave them to Ringo, the originals. I did a lot of drawing that night. And then George's house seemed to be just like a big submarine, I was driving it, they all went to bed, I was carrying on in it, it seemed to float above his wall which was 18 foot and I was driving it.

Emphasis added. Mere coincidence? Very possibly. It is a McCartney song, though apparently McCartney recalled that "I think John helped out", and in any case, if we've heard of Lennon's submarine vision from Rolling Stone it would hardly be surprising if McCartney had heard the story long before that.

Does anyone know if they're saying anything particular in the part where they speak, I think it is around the 1:40 mark in the song. I've always wondered about what that is but I can't seem to find it anywhere so if you know please tell!a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you... probably... I actually don't know... and it's nighttime here //piggiesinpennylane
