I have always loved and been fascinated by the way John 's facial expressions and vocal timbre seem disjointed as he's singing.  He's got this awesome raspiness to his voice when he's hitting the high notes and you'd think t these points in the song his face would look like he's really straining to achieve that effect. And yet when you see him in this video and elsewhere his face is completely relaxed, and there is no apparent effort exerted on his part as he achieves his "signature sound" --- efortlessly :)

This is part of the magic of John Lennon.

Thanks for the vid, bobby.

Now let's check out this high end recording gear(and it was for the day)......most tunes were recorded and sent to "one take wonders" back in these days folks. Mr. Martin knew how to spruce things up though.... ;)

How? And Why?

I will ask those questions about these songs and these musicians until the day I die.

The Bach(s) of modern music😀

Yes, I love your astute observation Mr. John...
It has been said that John could make his voice sound like any thing he wanted it to....

Interesting enough...Roy O (the great multi- octave vocalist)also sang pretty much sans facial expressions. In fact, it is said that one could barely hear his singing voice from much more than a couple of feet away.....it all came from a precisely controlled "chest" style of breathing/singing the lyric's.
Roy was bad ass....as was Mr. Lennon

Bobby,

If you have access to it there is a fascinating article in this months New Yorker about this ENT surgeon in Boston who is the world's foremost vocal cord surgeon. The descriptions of his techniques used while fixing Steven Tyler, Adele,etc, and the complexities of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (which supplies the VC's) makes me appreciate even more the musical geniuses that I have enjoyed in my life.

How?   The natural progression of angst in gifted musicians minds....the 50's Blues led to the Mop Tops applying their natural take on the times...

Why?  Gifted people often have a drive that even they themselves are unable to articulate just exactly where the driving force comes from....but it is there, and thank God for it.... ;)

Thanks Donnie...I definitely have enjoyed that one...George was such a giver in his minimal public views...focused and inspirational....sad to see critics uneducated negative reviews one sometimes see...jealousy can be a bitch to those that partake in it...
