I loved when George and Paul also harmonized during so many great songs. That was the best especially with John singing the lead.

Also, in case many of you didn't know, George is singing with Paul during the last verse in 'All My Loving' and not John which I believe is the only song that happens in.

I'm sorry if there's a topic about this somewhere, but I didn't find it and I was curious...

If I really have to choose (It's difficult, I feel like "But the others are also genius!..." And there's also this: their voices together are the perfect combination), I end up having no doubt, I must confess... I love Paul's voice. I love his ability and talent to sing sweet balads, with his more than sweet voice, and then his ability and talent to sing rock songs as wonderfully as he sings balads. His voice is perfect whether he is singing a sweet (and lots of times romantic) song or pure rock.

 

What about you?

Well this is quite hard. I thought ''Hmm who do I like better, John or Paul?'' and then I thought ''Wait a minute! I love George's voice too!'' 

If I HAD to choose, I'd probably go for Paul..at the moment. Tomorrow it might be different.

I can vaguely remember replying to a thread similar to this one before though, I'll see if I can find it.

@Beatlesneverdie and everyone else, please never ever feel sorry about not finding a previous thread on a topic. Searching can be daunting (sometimes even after you get the hang of it, it can still be tricky). If you have a question about starting a thread, feel free to contact a mod and ask about it, or go ahead and create a thread. As you can see, we have lots of folks helping watch the store, and they are helping the mods get stuff moved into the right place.

Thanks @Linde for thinking about there perhaps being another thread on this topic. I found this one to merge Beatlesneverdie's into. If you, or anyone else, finds more threads that are similar, let me or meanmistermustard know and we will see if we can sew them all together.

One of the things I like best about The Beatles is the fact that they can all sing – even Ringo. 

That's something wonderful about them, I agree with you, Zig. Actually, they all sing and they all play (guitar, piano, etc, etc). And they all have great voices. Well, they're excellent, that's what, as we all know. a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

None that I know of. If there is, it would be part of the unbooted Cavern recording that I believe Paul now owns.

Not that means we don't his voice, via the wonderful and very cheekily titled...

I won’t try to say it better than Alissa: when John sings his soul is all there, his emotion is all there. Or what Paul’bass said: Happiness Is A Warm Gun –it’s all there, the nuances, the uniqueness of his voice, his very heart. Paul sings beautifully, and George’s voice has a unique sound, but John’s voice comes from a deeper source.

Thanks to everybody for reading this beginner’s post.

I'll say that I have a particular affinity toward George's voice as he's probably the Beatle that sounds closest to my own singing voice 🙂

Ahhh yer makin me pick just one?! a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 

Paul... he has so many voices-- he can go from screaming to crooning in seconds-- but it's always Paul. heart 

George... his voice, while not that strong or versatile, is really unique, and the sheer effort he puts into some of his vocals (because his range limitations and whatnot) is truly moving. Not to mention I love the way he pronounces... everything. heart 

John... he really sings with his heart and soul. I particularly like his (Ahhh) Girl *John sucks*-style voice. heart 

Which is my favourite? Which is my favourite? Which is my favourite? a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Yeah, I admit Paul's voice can be brutal (oh darling springs to mind) but it lacks the honest emotion John shows. It all seems a bit plastic soul (or should that be Rubber Soul).

Old quote, but I've seen this sentiment before and it irks me.

What makes people say Paul's singing lacks emotion? It it because he sings on key? Is it because he makes it sound effortless? Where does this idea come from? Because singing is emotion, and I can definitely hear it in Paul's vocals. Just because his voice doesn't naturally have that sharp edge John's had, doesn't mean it's fake when you do hear it, and it certainly doesn't make his singing emotionless.

Anyway, stay-on-topic

 

I love Paul's voice the most, always have. But John is a very, very close second, and as others have said before nothing beats the sound of John and Paul, John and George, Paul and George, or John, Paul, and George harmonising together. That's just.... I don't know... otherworldly?

I like the sound of Ringo's voice, and I think they could have made him sing backup a lot more than hey did, but he did/does seem to sing a lot better when he's not in a studio recording session. He sounds much better in the MMT film, or the 1st USA visit documentary. When it's spontaneous, he actually has a really good voice. On the albums, not so much.

Agreed. I wonder why that is. Ringo is what someone normally sounds like when they're not trained but practices consistently. Now he sounds better than Paul because he didn't overuse his voice over the years. That said, I still bet Paul can sing more variety.

Anyway, I've said multiple times that I like John's voice better. I usually prefer higher-sounding voices because that's what I relate with. But John's tone is unique and a bit ethereal. He might not have the versatility of Paul, but I like his more abstract sound. Paul is very down-to-earth, as is his writing. John is the opposite and what I prefer. I like a darker tone and a song that can take you to another place. 🙂

Only music can save us.

I've decided Paul is my favourite Beatle voice, and George is my favourite post-Beatle voice. With an honourable mention to Johnny. a-hard-days-night-john-1
