mjb - well you can hear it for yourself (thanks Joe !) - my take on it is that it's a nice song but McCartney sounds a bit old, which makes me sad. If they weren't Beatles, would it have sold? Probably not.

Ringo was Jimmy Fallon the other night, and he answered some fan questions and sang "With A Little Help From My Friends" which was great. Hopefully NBC doesn't take it down too quick. Here's part one:


I've just watched all the clips on You Tube and thought Ringo came across really well. Dare I say this live version of Walk With You sounded better than the studio version with Paul Surprised

I loved the last song (With A Little Help....) where Jimmy joins him on stage.  It's hilarious the guy just doesn't know what to do with his hands!

This is Ringo Starr we are talking about! The problem for both McCartney and Starr is that the world will forever judge them by the Beatles standards that they themselves set down 40 years ago. This song isn't ground breaking ahead of its time, but then, This is probably the weakest combination of ex-Beatles that features one of the original key songwriters. I think the track is fine!

It's not available to UK viewers, but here's Ringo on the Daily Show site: http://www.thedailyshow.com/fu.....elentless7

Here's the first song, Walk With You:

I watched it on TV last night. It wasn't terrible but not great either. Poor Ringo didn't look too comfortable centre stage, though he perked up a little during With A Little Help From My Friends. He was pretty out-of-tune and his lyrics are full of cliches, though on the upside his violinist is very beautiful.

US people - was there anything else in the full show? We get an edited version here. After the above song they did With A Little Help, which was faded out as the credits rolled (so we didn't get Ringo's high note at the end).

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
