Its cool I like it too. I'm just now noticing it. I can't believe that since I've had this cd forever now.

It's at the beginning with the drum beats. A couple seconds into the song, and right before the guitar starts IIRC.
I'm ranking every Beatles song on my new pop culture blog. Check it out!

And here I thought this topic was referring to the cover art variations of the CDs.

I actually played out my first UHF CD (it's got a zillion scratches) and when I went to buy another one, it had a different back cover.

That's the four minute version. I personally like the 5 minute version better, but I can see why Al did the shorter one for the video. He had a much better chance of getting a shorter video played on TV.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

yeah, I like the longer version, either the one he used on the album or in the movie/DVD, because if you compare the longer version to the single/video version, it just sounds like he put a lot more energy and feel when he sang it, while the shorter version just sounds like he was re-reading the whole thing, almost like he had to, like with the whole GJWHL thing.

OK I'm done :peace:

Actually, most likely the shorter version uses the same vocal track as the longer version, since the key difference between the two is an instrumental bridge and not a change in lyrics.

I was just thinking about the fact that there are two different audio versions of the UHF song. I like the longer version better.
