What would you do?

At the beginning of his Woodstock version of the Lennon-McCartney number With a Little Help From My Friends, Joe Cocker sings:

What would you do if I sang out of tune?

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

And so saying, he does. He sings the end of the second line out of tune. Nobody seems to mind. So there.

Still, I suppose he just had to ask.


Here he is in that historic performance, evidently dancing to another number entirely, and singing … not quite sure what he’s singing. Luckily there are subtitles. Oh, I’ll take this almond love. Yeah, man.
