‘Photograph’ was the lead single released from Ringo Starr’s 1973 album Ringo.

It was co-written by Starr and George Harrison, one of several the pair collaborated on in the early 1970s. They began writing ‘Photograph’ in the south of France in May 1971. See more…

Well, I was great at writing two verses and a chorus – I’m still pretty good at that. Finishing songs is not my forte. I have written songs with 26 verses, ’cause I didn’t know how to end them! I started writing ‘Back Off Boogaloo’, then took it to George to help finish off. Same with ‘Photograph’ and ‘It Don’t Come Easy’.

The following people thank Joe for this post:

Thanks for sharing.  I’ve read that he covers his mouth because the BBC banned lip synching, or something to that effect.  Ringo seems to be having a laugh at their expense.

Don't you know? It's gonna be alright. (Shoo-bee-doo-wop)

Oh, that’s funny. I was wondering about that.

Sounds just like something a Beatle would do! Gotta love ’em!

Hilarious – thanks parlance.

Was that a face painted David Bowie @ about 1:49 in?

Also, apparently John & Yoko played very little tennis.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Thanks for sharing, parlance. 

You can kind of tell that George must have had a hand in it somewhere, because some of it strikes me as his sense of humour. 

Take care,

I don’t get why Bowie is in it, even if Ringo is a fan.

Maybe because Bowie was actually David Jones and Ringo is pre-figuring appearing with the other Davy Jones in that Pizza Hut commercial?  Just another eerie example of a Beatley secret ability to be ahead of the times.
