Beatle Pauls 7 Best Vocal Performances-www.szxcn.cn

Arts-and-Entertainment While John Lennon and George Harrison both have good voices and a certain style that they do very well. Paul McCartney had a great variety to what he could do vocally. He could sing very soft songs like "Yesterday" but he could also sing heavy rock songs like "Helter Skelter." He could really adjust and contort his voice in amazing ways. This article is on his seven best vocal performances as a Beatle. "Eleanor Rigby" – McCartney actually won the 1966 Grammy Award for best male vocal performance for this one and it’s easy to hear why. "Helter Skelter" – The Beatles at their heaviest and it was McCartney who wrote the song and sang lead. The perfect example of McCartney stretching his voice to fit the song. "Hey Jude" – This song has everything. The verses feature McCartney’s soft and sweet voice but the ending refrain of the song features McCartney going wild and doing his best Little Richard imitation (he was very influenced by Little Richard.) "I Will" – This charming little love song is the perfect follow-up to "Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?" and it includes perfect balladeer vocals by McCartney. The bass part is sang by McCartney (who was The Beatles bassist.) "Oh! Darling" – Apparently John Lennon disagrees with me on this one as he said in his 1980 Playboy interview that Paul didn’t it sing it well. "’Oh! Darling’ was a great one of Paul’s that he didn’t sing too well. I always thought I could have done it better?it was more my style than his. He wrote it, so what the hell, he’s going to sing it" John said. I can see (or hear) where Lennon is .ing from, it is seemingly more Lennon’s style. But I disagree with him that McCartney didn’t do a good job on it. This is what Paul had to say about singing the song: "When we were recording ‘Oh! Darling’ I came into the studios early every day for a week to sing it by myself because at first my voice was too clear. I wanted it to sound as though I’d been performing it on stage all week." I think he was absolutely successful in conveying that feeling with the song. It’s also always been one of my favorite Beatles songs to sing along to. "Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?" – This is arguably Paul at his most raucous. It’s an extremely simple song which is fitting because it’s a song about just "doing it." It’s a song about living in the moment and his voice perfectly captures that feeling. McCartney wrote and recorded this song all on his own with no input from the other Beatles. "Yesterday" – One of the most famous songs ever written. There have been at least 3000 cover versions recorded. It was the most played song on US radio for 8 consecutive years. Amazingly it was initialy included as a "b-side" to "Act Naturally" (a rather forgettable cover song sang by Ringo.) The band was somewhat concerned that the song didn’t fit the image they wanted to convey so "Yesterday" wasn’t released as a single in the UK (but they weren’t able to stop the single from being released by the US record .pany.) This song featured only McCartney’s acoustic guitar and his voice along with a string quartet. Because of that his voice really stands out in the song as it’s certainly a song driven first and foremost by it’s beautiful melody. Paul sings the song perfectly. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
