Which song would you call Ringo's best song with the beatles. I don't like any song he covered and I don't like any song paul and/or john wrote for him. Don't Pass Me By it's boring in it's piano style with the violin. So the only song left is Octopus' Garden which I really like and which couldn't be sung better by anyone else. It's really nice with it's backing vocals and it's nice guitar

What Goes On. Fabulous vocal, all mournful and hurt, gorgeous backing vocals, Georges country licks are his best on record, and Johns throwback comment to Tell Me Why. Man i love that song.

Probably With A Little Help. It's quite witty ("What would you do if I sang out of tune" etc) and doesn't outstay its welcome. I don't care much for Ringo's own compositions, nor the covers.

I love his voice on "A Little Help..." I remember reading that the words originally were "would you throw tomatoes at me" and Ringo said no way would he sing that, just in case they ever toured again, he knew he would be pelted with tomatoes, lol

 

I also like his "Boys" version and "Octopus Garden" is sweetly sung.

 

(For post-Beatles, his wonderful song for George "Never Without You"...impossible to listen to without tears...

My favorites are Octopus's Garden, and With a Little Help. They're fabulous and his voice is something that could never be replaced or these tracks just would not sound the same. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13heart

Has to be "Octopus's Garden" for me. When I first heard that song, I couldn't stop singing it for the whole course of softball practice (much to the annoyance of my teammates...). By the time practice was over, however, the whole team was singing along with me, even though none of them had ever heard the song before practice began. It was a magical moment and a Beatles fan win!

With A Little Help. It's witty, it's well written, it's not terribly difficult to sing (as was intended) but it doesn't drag on like Ringo songs have the tendency to. Oh, and it's got call and response vocals. Go Ringo!

Yeah, "...Friends" it is. Tho "Octopus' Garden" is pretty great too. And I've always appreciated "Honey Don't" and "Don't Pass Me By" more than most. ("You were in a car crash/And you lost your hair" is such a wonderfully silly couplet.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

My favorites are "Octopus's Garden" and "With A Little Help From My Friends". Those songs just fit his voice. (Or is it the other way round? ahdn_paul_06)

"With A Little Help From My Friends" -- Ringo's finest vocal performance -- Lennon & McCartney really came through for Richie this time

(Honourable mentions:   "Octopus's Garden" & "Boys")

I've got nothing to say, but it's okay.. GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING!! GOOD MORNING!!!
