This song is so versatile. It sounds good even with simple instruments. Well, maybe it sounds so good because RINGO is actually singing along. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

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.

The best was yet to come with “I’ve Got Blisters On My Fingers”. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

The video wasn’t bad but they were using real instruments. It would’ve been much cooler if they were using pencils and rubber bands to play the song.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

So, somebody has to ask the question, how well does this Paul quote from Many Years from Now (one of many variations along the same lines)…

It’s pretty much my song as I recall, written for Ringo in that little twilight moment. I think John helped out; the lyrics get more and more obscure as it goes on but the chorus, melody and verses are mine.

…stand up given the evidence of the two songwriting work tapes. Does Paul’s almost dismissive “I think John helped out” survive the light shone it by the new audio?

John has the basis of the verse melody here, along with a version of the opening line. It is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, WTF moment since Apple started opening the archives back in 1994. I hadn’t even heard rumours of its existence before it was announced as part of this set. (We thought we’d got pretty much the motherlode back in the ’80s with The Lost Lennon Tapes, but are just now finding there are game-changing gems in the Lennon archive that challenge what we think we know).

Equally surprising is the second work tape, with John sounding very much in control, with him batting down Paul’s suggestion that they duet on it with “You can play on your track and I’ll play on mine.”

It seems that possibly the most accurate description of how YS was written is found in the long-ignored (in this respect) interview they gave at the Ivor Novello Awards in March 1967:

Q: Good. Who was principally responsible, Paul or John?
J: Paul.
P: John, really.
J & P: No. No.

*****

Q: John, earlier before we started recording, you said it was in effect written as two separate songs.
J: Yeah. I seem to remember, like, the submarine… the chorus bit, you coming in with it.
P: Yeah.
J: And wasn’t the other bit something that I had already going, and we put them together?
P: Well, yeah. Right. Yeah.
J: And it made sense to make it into…
P: Yeah, the bit… (sings melody to verse) ‘Dut-ta-da, da-dut-ta-da.’
J: With Ringo in mind, again.

Seems that this is much more a Lennon/McCartney song than Paul’s version has wanted us to believe (and also throws up the question, yet again, of how reliable he is as a witness).

I think it demonstrates very well that memories are worth little at this distance in time without hard proof. Also, I didn’t give Many Years much more credence than Lennon’s Wenner tapes because the motives are too similar: rewriting history in their image for points. Understandable, but it’s not historical.

Yeah, from what I had heard, I always figured this was mainly a Paul song.  But the “work tape” suggests otherwise, more like an even collaboration.  

I like this song more than most people I know, it’s one of my favorites.  It works equally well as a children’s song, a campfire song, folk song, or hallucinogenic psychedelia.  Throw in the side effects and the background voices and vocals, and it’s absolutely marvelous IMO.

Is there anyway that what we hear on that Lennon demo of the song is John recording music/lyrics that Paul had told him about? Just a thought.

Neil’s words in September 1966.

Paul had been carrying thecbasic ideas for “Yellow Submarine ” in his headcfor ages … John and Paul’s had everything worked out except for the last few lines of lyrics.

Maybe, but “In the place where I was born, no one cared” seems typically Lennonesque (like “Can’t get no worse” in Getting Better ).

Also, John initially sings “place” in the demo; then a little later he sings “town” instead, which seems to be a progression towards the final lyrics.
