Listen at 2:39 to 2:42 - Was Eric's stylized singing influenced by these four seconds? Discuss


Recommended Posts

Not exactly sure what's being picked out in those four seconds, but I think Eric and Paul do sound quite similar generally speaking. It's likely that Paul's vocal delivery influenced Eric, but he mentions in Marathon Man that he never had to try all that hard to sound like McCartney. It's also possible they both just naturally have comparable vocal timbres.

I hear Eric-style "tenor float" counterpoint harmonies in the "Hello Goodbye" parallel octave harmonies above the melody line starting at 1:00. Which one of the Beatles sang the high tenor line? 😉 

Pretty sure Paul's voice naturally had the highest range, so I would not be surprised if it was him on overdubs.
