Paul was on the Jimmy Fallon show a few weeks ago, and mentioned that two of his favorite Ringo songs (post-Beatles) are "It Don't Come Easy" and "Back Off Boogaloo".

OK... what's everybody's two favorite Ringo songs around here? (again, post-Beatles)

'Photograph' & 'I'm The Greatest', but I guess that 'I'm The Greatest' is a John Lennon song so not sure if it counts...:-)

From why I've listened to It Don't Come Easy and I'm The Greatest.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Too many to count and pick from me (of course).

Today it is:

Early 1970 - heart on his sleeve

Walk With Me - for the Paul link that started the thread

Oh - and welcome to the forums.

'Step Lightly', 'You and Me Babe' and 'Early 1970' are the obvious ones - Ringo's vocals are spot on for all three. As trcanberra says the later is Ringo being blatant about his fellow ex-Beatles and his relationships with them at the time, its so sad to hear Ringo sing " And when he comes to town I wonder if he'll play with me" in regards to Paul. 

'The No No No Song' is fun but if i listened to it often i'd probably grow to hate it. 

'Pure Gold' and 'You Don't Know Me At All' i really like from memory, real life hearing might be another story.

I cant think of anything after 1976 that grabbed me.

Can't. Just can't. No matter how hard I try.

I can't even take one song off Beaucoups of Blues. If I put his Choose Love album on, I can't turn it off for days at a time. Oh, shoot, I'm gonna stop now. I just can't narrow them down. I heart Ringo's music!

I have to get Choose Love next time I am on an ebay binge.

I just thought of this topic yesterday. Amazingly, I found the existing thread!

Photograph is my favorite,  I don't know how much of it he actually wrote. It Don't Come Easy is 2nd. 3rd is my favorite as a Beatle, Don't Pass Me By .

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Not a big Ringo fan, but "It Don't Come Easy" & "Photograph" come to mind.

"No No Song" is kind of fun! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Such <3 in this thread for Ringo...I wish I knew his catalogue as well as you guys. I doubt I'd be able to find anything to top "Early 1970" though. Is this the best song about the Beatles by a former Beatle? I'm pretty sure it's my favourite, anyways.

I think it is the best. There are some of the tribute songs after John died and so on, but I don't think anything captures the mood quite like that one.

My fave Ringo songs are Oh My My, Call Me, Only You (And You Alone), and Photograph

I played part of Oh My My for my history class as part of a project and my teacher seemed to really enjoy it. That's probably my very favorite song of Ringo's.

You don't often see someone listing that one among their favorites. I like it very much. His falsetto is actually soothing to my ears and I always get a kick out of the recitations at about 1:35 in. A lovely job indeed by our Richy.

I tried again. Do you realize how many there are to choose from? Ahhhhhhhhhh................

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.....ingo_Starr

This exercise is driving me insane. Pick just two!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhh...................

If you haven't listened to Mystery of the Night, Wonderful, Liverpool 8, After All These Years, or Write One for Me get busy.

I have to quit, or there will be 50 videos in that spoiler. On the bright side, I have had a great time listening to lots of **RINGO** tonight.

^I was listening to that YouTube link of "Wonderful," and I recognized the song but couldn't recall what album it was on so I went to my iTunes and put Ringo on shuffle by accident. The song that started playing? "Wonderful."

Would that be called has to the known as a "Richy" Moment or what?a-hard-days-night-ringo-6ahdn_ringo_09
