I hope I don't regret opening this up to include "worse". I don't want it to become a downer, dumping ground.

Maybe you could require that if someone posts a worse they have to post a better in the same post?

I know this is a semi-old topic, but I felt like I should post.

I think that Get Back would've sounded better if John sang it.

@TrippyFlower. I'm totally with you. On this early rocking version you can hear more of John and its really good.

ahdn_paul_06Thats amazing! John's raw voice better captures the essence of the song.

Just heard John's version for the first time. Great! I liked it.

 

I like this version of Something . McCartney holds it in a fantastic manner, and the idea of playing an ukulele was a good way to remember that George was a fan this instrument as well. I don't like comparing both versions (the Abbey Road 's version is one of my favorites Beatles' tunes). 

 

Paul McCartney - Something

 

There is another one I'd like to share: Eric Clapton's version of Isn't It A Pity . There are some songs that I like to listen with his voice (Beware Of Darkness from Concert for George).

Eric Clapton - Isn't It a Pity

 

Ok, the last one... Joe Brown's version of That's The Way it Goes (Concert for George as well - there are many good versions on this record, I believe). Sounds light to me, a relaxing song. 

That's The Way It Goes - Joe Brown

I think John singing "When I'm Sixty-Four " would sound pretty cool.  a-hard-days-night-john-1 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Something is my favourite Beatlessong (well, on a shared first place with Strawberry Fields Forever ) and while Paul's version can't really be compared, it''s incredibly beautiful. The first time I heard it was on the dvd of Concert for George and I cried.

I had the same reaction when listening to it live. It is a really emotional song, I think.

Ugh, yes live was amazing!  Saw him do it twice!

Yes, it was quite recent!  The first time was his "On The Run" tour in November 2012 in Vancouver, the second time was Seattle in July 2013, of the "Out There" tour.  a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Oh, great! Did he played together with the nirvana members when you saw him in seattle?
