"All By Myself" vs. "Alone Again (Naturally)"

Vinnie, I didn't say that clip was John Lennon singing. Read more closely, man! It says "somebody doing 'Alone Again' in a John Lennon way."

That said, I would tend to agree that "AAN" has a McCartney-esque flavor as well. But I'm not backing down that I hear some Lennon in it. The best Beatles-influenced acts (ELO, World Party, Raspberries) could channel both Lennon and McCartney—and some Harrison, too. In "Alone Again," the melancholy in the melody reminds me of Paul, the gloom-and-doom theme of John.

I would say John Lennon circa 1963-1966 would have sung a mean vocal on Alone Again.

The song is Beatle like and either could have crooned it

Well done. A slightly more pained reading... and such a clean sound.

There was an "Ally McBeal" episode called "Alone Again" (the only episode that was "TV - G" on FOX) & Vonda Shepard did "Alone Again (Naturally)" at the end of the episode from late 1997 during the 1st season!!!

Hey, this is really powerful. Love the opening strings that leave you waiting for the vocal, and then we're treated to such a clean, beautifully played and sung rendition. Never heard this, so... thank you Matthew.
