Boys , and Yellow Submarine are good. Ringo is my favorite, I love every song by him. He's amazing if he doesn't sing too, he has the drums! Overall Yellow Submarine is the most popular for my age-group. Ringo has a different voice from the others, it's quite low.ahdn_ringo_09

My Favorite by Ringo is probably Boys . I Like the way he sings it and i think it suited him

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.

My vote would go to I Wanna Be Your Man but I do enjoy his vocals on Yellow Submarine , Boys , With A Little Help From My Friends and What Goes On

If one looks at the overall quality of the song, I'd say WALHFMF or Octopus's Garden as well but when it comes to the quality of Ringo's vocals, I'd say Honey Don't . This song is just made for Ringo. No other version I've heard including the original sounded as charming and joyful as Ringo's, I have to admit that I was even really disappointed when I heard John singing it on Live At The BBC although John is my favourite singer of all time. That just proves how much of a Ringo track it is.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Best Beatles song? Octopus's Garden

Best Ringo song? without a doubt Sunshine Life For Me

With A Little Help was perfect for Ringo, so its no surprise its topping most peoples preferences.

Octopus Garden is also a fun little track with some of George's best ever guitar.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

It's close between Octopus's Garden and Boys . I think Octopus's Garden is a better song, but Boys is a better vocal.

Either Good Night or Yellow Submarine . Love both of those songs and definitely love Ringo.

I agree! ahdn_ringo_09

Good Night is always belittled because it's a lullaby, but it's a marvelous song and one of Ringo's best vocals.

They're all good - they're all Ringo! (Except Matchbox and Good Night ...)

Personally, his best vocal performance by far is the anthology version of I Wanna Be Your Man . Fantastic stuff.

Honey Don’t is a cover but a damned good one.

I like how Ringo mentions George and himself, making the song more Beatley.

Btw I love your profile picture. It combines my second favorite band with a member of my most favorite.

... what? What's wrong with Good Night ? I haven't ever actually heard Matchbox all the way through paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif so I don't know how good it is... but I love Good Night !!!

I'm going to have to go with the unpopular choice of What Goes On .

As for why Good Night sucks, it's just Ringo with his generic lyrics and a Disney-style orchestra. Don't get me wrong, it works well as the closer to The Beatles but i'd never listen to it elsewhere.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

1. I like What Goes On too. ahdn_ringo_09

2. Generic lyrics you say? Love Me Do has the most generic lyrics ever and it's a great song. 

3. Call me a sap if you like, but I like the orchestra. a-hard-days-night-paul-4mccartney-shrug_01_gif

4. Ringo's vocal is so amazing! I hardly even care about the backing, his voice is heartheartheart on this song.

Love one another.
