I had a laugh today when I found out that Ringo Starr's "A Man Like Me" was originally a song called "A Mouse Like Me" from the Scouse the Mouse LP.  The best part is the lyrics are exactly the same except the word "Man/Mouse".

Yes, I prefer the mouse version. Have you heard Living in a Pet Shop? It's a Ringo classic.

Of course!  The original is always better!

Yes! I got my hands on a copy of Scouse the Mouse whilst Beatles rarity hunting.  It's such a shame that the film was never made.

I actually wasn't aware the cartoon wasn't made. I should get the album. I only have mp3s of the songs where Ringo sings.

Yeah, the full album kinda sounds like the audio track for the film.  Like the film could still be made, if you just took the album and added visual to it.
