Not by me, always about top 5 of the Beatles
The studio version. He expressed some dismay that the label pushed the live version because he thought the one with the "funny voices" or goofy voices - whatever - was great. He also said he understood that's "the business" though.
Fine. You guys win. I still say that all that matters is what wound up on the final recording. I probably stepped out of line with the comment about the whole post. Let's move on. let's not allow this to ruin the generally good vibe of the thread.
Thanks. I always liked them equally. It's like a rock Paul, novelty Paul como.
Yes, yes, i'm sorry. I stepped over the line.
I know all about I Don't Want to Spoil the Party. I focus on the vocal swapping every time I listen to it. It brings new joy to an already great song. I'll listen for that in the other songs you mention.
I started out liking the live version. I thought the studio was too weird...now it's completely reversed. I've embraced weirdness. I guess that's what college does to you.
My nephew who's in his 20s (I'm in my 40s) got turned on to The Beatles and solo Paul and John a few years ago.
I played him the live version thinking he would think it was a cool Paul rocker.
He thought it was okay.
I played him the studio version and it became one of his favorites.
I'm still surprised.
Not so much that he likes the studio one so much, but that he didn't even think the live was all that great.
