Let It Be
"Two of Us"
Paul's great Every Brother's update. The eventual release played up the folk elements, but as can be seen from this rehearsal clip, the song started out more as a rocker:
There are some interesting things going on rhythm-wise, with odd bar lengths and whatnot. Also notable is the lack of bass – George filled in with some tasty country-flavoured low-string work on the Tele. But in the end, it's Paul and John, singing in harmony, the way they did for many years, and never did again after this album was released.
