I wasn't a fan of this song when I first heard it but as I got older and appreciated nonsense I started to really like this song. I put it on for a laugh.

It's John, @BummerDrummer, with a little Paul behind.

Hello BEATLES Fans:

 

Toward the very end of "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)", one can hear someone emit a belch.

 

I have always assumed that it was a recording of John burping, but is there any way to confirm my suspicion or confirm who it actually was?

 

Thanks so much,

 

Fab4Fan

Always loved this...It was a B side to Let It Be .......

There was a pub that let us in to drink even in our school uniforms.......My lunch money let me buy a Light and Lime and a pie........

I had money enough left for the juke box.......It was the only place i could ever hear this song.......My mates hated it......But tough!!

I swear I recall an interview with Paul from many years ago saying this was his favorite Beatle song.  Kind of an odd choice, to say the least.  But there is a lot going on in it, so I could sort of understand it.  Or maybe he was just in a weird mood that day.

They also worked on this song for several years, so maybe he had a lot of memory associations with it, from different times.

I used to hate this song, but it grew on me and now I find myself singing it in the silly voices. No hope now.

He said it in a 1988 interview with Mark Lewisohn for Lewisohn's The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions...

I can see why Paul likes the song, it’s the memory of the experience as he puts it. Being silly in the studio. I’d love to see footage of those sessions if they ever existed.
