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.

I agree with you, Joe, about With a Little help- nobody else could quite sing that song. For a moment Ringo's defiency in singing actually becomes an asset. I do like a lot of humorous songs he ahs covered, though, Act naturally being one of them. Another song that could have been written for Ringo( in this case it isn't, of course). Yellow submarine can get a bit boring but his monotonous, flat voice fits rather well with the song; it's made for children, anyway, and children would rather understand the lyrics than marvel with the wonderful talent the singer has.

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…

Judging songs as "best" always proves to be controvercial, so I'm going for favourite!
1) Good night (for some it's too sweet, but I like it sweet! His voice actually cracks once, you can hear it was touching for him as well. Love his wispered goodbye at the very end!)
2) Octopus's garden
3) With a little help
4) Boys!! (Ok, the screams in the background are the real treat here…)
I don't care much for Act naturally or Honey don't (though I like his "Rock on George, one time for Ringo!")
least: Matchbox (totally awkward vocals, as if he'd sang it for the first time, not knowing how to sing it at all)

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.)

My favorite Ringo sang song is Act Natually, I find Ringo had that country type voice, so a song like that he could easily sing it comfortably and well I find Ringo seems like a fun loving guy when he sings, though his voice isn't really my favorite among the talents of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison.
