@StrawberryWalrus, i adore 'What Goes On', its my favourite Ringo track, so delighted its at the top of someone's list instead of being shoved at the bottom.

It must be my fav Ringo track too, with Octopus Garden coming  to a very close 2nd place. Rubber Soul is one of my personal favorites too, but this song just blows them all off with sincere and simple Ringo perfomance.

Conversely, my favorite track on the album (it's in my Beatles top 5) was "shoved at the bottom" by the previous two posters. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Ah well, one man's treasure...

All in all, a great album - hard to argue with any ranking of tracks on this one.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

For me the worst track on the album is 'Nowhere Man', have never got what others hear in it which makes it get a decent rating.

It's the little "PLLLIIINGGGG!" at the end of the solo. That's totally it ahdn_ringo_09

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

To be honest I have great difficulty ranking this album, close as it is to perfect. But...

  1. Drive My Car Perfect starting song, this is proper riff-based and holy cow those harmonies.
  2. The Word Fantastic bounce from the bass and those guitar stabs. Just gorgeous singing. You are forbidden from unhappy!
  3. Think For Yourself This is a stunning song for an early George. Great backup vocals and zippy fuzz bass! Paul seems to have grown an extra octave from this period, he does some of the best singing of his life from here on.
  4. Nowhere Man It's brilliant. Suddenly John is writing poetry in his songs.
  5. In My Life And then John does it again. I'm reminded of All I've Got To Do where Ringo holds it together, its much trickier than it sounds.
  6. Norwegian Wood The sitar makes its famous entrance. John still channelling Dylan. Unusual 3/4 time signature but its not a waltz!
  7. Girl The metre of this song reminds me of I'm Only Sleeping, another big acoustic number.
  8. I'm Looking Through You It's a simple song but Paul puts his rave voice into it and it's a proper breakup song rather than a lovey one like Michelle
  9. If I Needed Someone Ok it isn't the greatest lyric on the planet, but its hella cruisey and fits that whole Byrdsy thing they had going with his other song.
  10. What Goes On This is the nice country song on the album. Sung by that nice Ringo.
  11. Michelle The tune is pretty but Paul didn't work too hard on the lyrics in contrast to John and it stands out.
  12. You Won't See Me I have to say Anne Murray did it better. The ideas are there, the execution just doesn't come off and becomes a trudge in the "Time after time..." sections.
  13. Run For Your Life I just hate the lyrics, and I wish the music wasn't that good.
  14. Wait This is filler.
