Liverpool 8 – about Ringo's life through to the Beatles years; song written by Ringo and Dave Stewart:

 

Liverpool 8 is the postal code for the area of Liverpool where Ringo lived during his childhood and most of his teenage years: he was born at 9 Madryn Street, Dingle, and later moved to 10 Admiral Grove, Dingle.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

Ringo played this song from the rooftop of St George's Hall in Liverpool as the city began its European capital of culture year (2008).

I've seen better video of the event, but here's what I can find now.

I know this Holiday Inn

Yes, the Liverpool 8 title was nicely appropriate for the Liverpool (200)8 European Capital of Culture celebrations – as well as being the postal code of Ringo's childhood homes.
