A trio of songs...

...with audible inhaling from the lead or back-up singers:

The Beatles' "Girl" (John sounds more like he's one toke over the line than cooing over some young lady.) 1965

Sam Cooke's "Cupid" (It's the sound of the cherub's arrow going "straight to my lover's heart.") 1961

Bob Dylan's "Caribbean Wind" (Here at least the singers get to exhale loudly too!) 1981

Feel free to offer more examples!


  1. Exhales aside (and Girl is a great example) I always associate Girl with the naughty bit that the lads are singing in the background during the middle 8.

  2. That's the other notable tidbit from "Girl"...you're right!
