if you listen to their songs, especially the ones that have a lot of continuous 2-3 part harmony, you’ll find yourself singing along with the best heard melody–the one that sticks out and is easy to follow and catches your ear.
But when you start really listening to them, you realized that this “simple melody” is actually being split between multiple singers: most of the time, Paul and John are sharing parts of the same ‘simple’ melody, weaving around each other and sharing bits of it. If you actually followed either one of their lines all the way through, it would not be as easily heard as you think it is.
It just speaks volumes to the way they worked together and performed together. They learned how to put their voices in perfect unison AND harmony, and were so smart in the ways they arranged the songs.
And the way they MATCHED. Most of the time, Paul is crawling all over the place, twisting a harmony line around John’s solid melody, but it’s the way they melt their voices together that amazes me. They used the same sort of pronunciation, the same vowel sounds, the same vocal rhythmic changes…stuff you’d hear in rehearsed choral ensembles, not rock ‘n roll bands.
