George’s songs are now all done. If I’ve missed out anything major do let me know (no bootlegs/unreleased songs though).

I’ve just added an A-Z of Ringo’s songs, though tbh I’m very unlikely to do individual articles for most of them. I’ll probably go through the Photograph best-of and do those songs, and maybe I’ll tackle some of the more important albums (Ringo, Goodnight Vienna etc), but I don’t think anyone would lose sleep if I didn’t cover Ringo Rama or Scouse The Mouse in-depth.

Thanks, Joe. apple01

Here are some Ringo solo songs that I think stand out from the rest – they could be deserving of individual articles:

It Don’t Come Easy
Back Off Boogaloo
Photograph
Never Without You
Early 1970
Peace Dream
Give More Love
Anthem
Liverpool 8
Down And Out
Free Drinks
Step Lightly
Coochy Coochy
Blindman

Thanks @Richard. Here’s a list of 31 songs (one for each day of the month) that I drew up. There are a few that diverge from your list, and I’m open to suggestions.

I’m not sure if I’ll do them at all, though. As far as I know the performer line-ups for his songs aren’t always common knowledge, and I’m not convinced I’d be able to find them. If there’s a good source out there please let me know.

1 Beaucoups Of Blues
2 It Don’t Come Easy
3 Early 1970
4 Back Off Boogaloo
5 Photograph
6 You’re Sixteen
7 Oh My My
8 Only You
9 No No Song
10 Snookeroo
11 It’s All Down To Goodnight Vienna
12 I’m The Greatest
13 A Dose Of Rock n Roll
14 Hey! Baby
15 Wings
16 Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette)
17 In My Car
18 I Keep Forgettin’
19 Weight Of The World
20 Never Without You
21 Liverpool 8
22 Walk With You
23 Postcards From Paradise
24 Give More Love
25 What’s My Name
26 Grow Old With Me
27 Six O’Clock
28 Sunshine Life For Me (Sail Away Raymond)
29 Wrack My Brain
30 Fading In Fading Out
31 Rory and the Hurricanes

@Joe 

Would ‘I’ll Still Love You’ be of interest, mainly due to George suing Ringo over how the released version came out? Another that quickly comes to mind is ‘Cookin’ (In The Kitchen of Love)’ or whatever it’s officially called since it’s the last song John was in the studio recording before he went into his 5-year hiatus. 

I have no idea how much interest is in those but they have may have more of an angle than random non-events in Ringo’s catalogue simply because of whatever album they would appear on.

Establishing the performer line-ups could indeed be tricky for some of these songs. Unfortunately, I don’t know of a good general source for the appropriate information.

The 31-song list includes all my main favourites, plus some important ones that I had overlooked. The only other songs I would particularly suggest are: Peace Dream, Anthem, Down And Out, Blindman, and maybe You Can’t Fight Lightning.

Blindman has a link with the 1971 film of the same name, although it’s only a minor link: the song was intended to be the film’s theme song, but the producer chose to use a Cipriani score instead. Blindman is also one of only a small number of songs with the songwriting officially credited solely to Richard Starkey (i.e. without collaboration); I think there are just 10 post-Beatles songs in this category:
* Coochy Coochy
* It Don’t Come Easy [later acknowledged George Harrison ‘s help with the songwriting]
* Early 1970
* Down And Out
* Step Lightly
* Back Off Boogaloo [later acknowledged George Harrison ‘s help with the songwriting]
* Blindman
* Call Me
* Wake Up
* You Can’t Fight Lightning [produced by Paul McCartney , and it’s claimed online that this track features Ringo on guitar, Paul on drums, Barbara Bach on maracas, and Linda McCartney among others on backing vocals – interesting if correct]

OK, thanks both. This is very helpful. I don’t need to limit the list of features to 31, but that would be the most I’d add to the homepage feed. It’s OK, it’s some way off, and I might be able to do all of these in some capacity.

Some of the George Harrison song features are very sparse, notably the Wonderwall Music ones. It’s not ideal but I can publish something with not much info.

A new book on Ringo’s output from 1962-2023 actually came out last week. It’s self-published and I don’t know anything about the author but I’ve just ordered a copy.

6 Miss O’Dell
7 Try Some, Buy Some
8 Dark Horse

28 Cheer Down
29 Stuck Inside A Cloud
30 Any Road
31 Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea

Ringo Starr song of the day (7 days)

Sunday – It Don’t Come Easy
Monday – Early 1970
Tuesday – Back Off Boogaloo
Wednesday – Photograph
Thursday – You’re Sixteen
Friday – Only You
Saturday – (It’s All Down To) Goodnight Vienna

Traveling Wilburys song of the day (7 days):

Sunday – Handle With Care
Monday – Heading For The Light
Tuesday – End Of The Line
Wednesday – Nobody’s Child
Thursday – She’s My Baby
Friday – Inside Out
Saturday – Wilbury Twist

I’ve now got feeds for John, Paul, George, Ringo (song/album of the day), and Wings (AOTD) and the Wilburys (SOTD), cycling on 7 or 31 day loops. I think it looks pretty good. Fortunately the Wilburys had seven singles (one was a promo), and George *almost* released 31 singles, though I had to add Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea to make up the numbers. That’s OK though.

I decided not to do any more Ringo song features for a bit, because the data really isn’t out there for who played what. I might revisit that section in future one day, but I’m going to head back to Bowieland for a bit now paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Since the beginning of the year I’ve been adding Paul McCartney tour dates. I’ve got a few one-off appearances still to add, but I’ve now done all the tours from the first Wings tour in 1972 to last year’s Got Back Tour. I also did George Harrison ‘s live dates, which mercifully took much less time.

I might add Ringo dates when I get a chance, but I think I’ll take a break and do something else for a bit.

I’ve also just added some stats to the footer of every page. As of today, this site contains a total of 4,534 historical posts, plus 1,472 features on songs, albums and more, totalling 3,948,259 words across the website. That’s a *lot* of content. To put it into perspective, War And Peace contains approximately 570,000 words, so imagine seven copies side by side on a shelf (not that I’d ever compare myself to Tolstoy, and there’s a fair bit of duplication on some of these pages).

There have also been 34,717 comments, all of which were manually approved (and many more spam and nonsense comments), and 2,858 registered users (ie forum members) since 2008. If you ever wonder why I’m not around here often, I’m probably just doing something in the background.

On the subject of Ringo, is there a site or page anywhere that contains a list of all his live shows? I know a lot will be on setlist.fm, but I wonder if anyone knows of another. And did he tour much, or at all, before the first All-Starr Band in 1989? I’m a bit ignorant of his solo activities, but I do like to give him fair coverage on the site.

@Joe.

Here is one place which appears to date all the tours from 1989 onwards. It seems quite indepth and kept updated but it’s only thru remembering reading about it a good few years ago.

 

I’m pretty sure Ringo only supported others and did a few numbers if any before 1989. Wasn’t the touring a way to help him, and Barbara, stay clean after going thru therapy?

Perfect! That’s exactly what I needed. Thank you so much!

Yeah, I’m not aware of any headlining shows at all before the All-Starr Band. I’ll add a couple of links to the one above:

setlist.fm (Ringo Starr )

setlist.fm (All-Starr Band)

There’s a bit of overlap between the above and I’m sure there’ll be inaccuracies, but that’s normal with user-generated sites. I’ll draw up a list of tour dates and see how feasible it is to add to this site.

Edit: I forgot all about the Eight Arms To Hold You book, which has dates and info up to 2000. Should be OK now paul-mccartney-thumb_gif
