I can hear perfectly. I can sing OK, but I cant hit the high ones...not one bit. Songs like Ill be Back are perfect for me. I would say Im average for an amatuer, whihc means I'm terrible vs professionals, lol.

I suppose I don't do too bad at singing though my range has shrunk a bit. Among the Beatles songs I'm really most comfortable with the John parts as well - I love singing along to "Ticket to Ride" or "All You Need Is Love" for instance - among his solo songs "Imagine" and "Jealous Guy" are my favourites. I do admire those who can sing George's songs well - some of them I find really hard to sing along to, both melody and rhythm wise. I thought it really interesting how Macca "straightened out" a bit the complicated and irregular rhythm pattern of "Something" when he performed it.
It's the start of a journey
To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...

I can do pretty well all Paul's harmonies and lead vocals, George's harmonies are challenging as they were usually a bit lower. Being so used to singing Paul's part it takes a few listens to get in a George frame of mind :)

I can sing and play keyboard to a reasonable degree. Regular features of my performances include, in terms of Beatles material:

Let It Be
Maybe I'm Amazed
Things We Said Today
Hey Jude
Imagine

Mind you, I'm probably going to drop HJ - because I never have a very enthusiastic audience for singing along! Actually, I got LIB just right for the first time when I last performed. Previously, when playing it, it never quite sounded right. I guess I was treating the song with too much reverence, I dunno. But I nailed it last time.

As for MIA, well, I sing it an octave lower. That way the high notes are easy!

Things We Said Today is a fave of mine because I do it so differently. I do a jazz-style piano version as opposed to the guitar pop-ballad of the original. Still slow, though.

Other favourites of mine for live performing are:

Every Breath You Take - The Police (a bitch to play but well worth it!)
I'm Still Standing - Elton John (possible my favourite to do live)
And a few others as well, but these two really do stand out.
