The Beatles -- ‘Little Child’

Little Child (1.48)

John Lennon: Lead vocal, rhythm guitar, harmonica; Paul McCartney: Lead vocal, bass guitar, piano; George Harrison: Lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums;

A genuine fifty-fifty effort between John and Paul. There’s been some debate about who ended up singing the final version because a lot of people think they’re both harmonising, whilst other people think that John is double-tracked.

John was famously self-conscious about his voice and George Martin remembered: “He was a great admirer of Elvis Presley’s early records, particularly the ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ kind of sound. He also had an inborn dislike of his own voice which I could never understand. He was always saying to me: ‘DO something with my voice! You know, put something on it. Smother it with tomato ketchup or something. Make it different.’”
