I did some searching and hope there isn't a thread like this...

I was just listening to some isolated drum tracks, and was wondering what everyone's favourite drum fills are? I quite like Eight Days A Week 's fills, and the two 10 second fills during the 'why why why why why why do you say...' section of Hello Goodbye are just plain crazy! 

And the last minute and a half of Good Morning Good Morning ... Ringo went to town!

Definitely the Hello Goodbye ones. I once listened to this outtake and thought it was amazing.

Rain , Ticket To Ride and Day Tripper to start. 

 

But I love me some Richie, and could listen to his playing all day every day.

I love the fill in between the A and B section of You Never Give Me Your Money . It works very well in transition and has that fluttery sound that sounds so good throughout Abbey Road

Agree with all of the above. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Haven't seen any love for the opening of She Loves You , which was pretty much the fill that took then to the toppermost of the poppermost. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

There's a particular fill in Here Comes The Sun that I always like... actually, there are several. And in Something , the fills during the 'You're asking me will my love grow' section. Basically, just everything on Abbey Road  stuart-sutcliffe

I second (third?) Hello Goodbye . I believe that when I listened to that backing track, that was when I truly became aware of Ringo's greatness. 

She Said She Said has some great moments as well.

Too many to mention but let's just say the air fills in intros because he is so distinctive:

Drive My Car - deliberately off-putting

Rain the birth of the air fill

Lovely Rita the first really relaxed intro pause fill with dotty piano

Sgt Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band Reprise - not a fill as such but time, however, it's been sampled like crazy and an unusual way to start

Glass Onion - now what does this remind you of? Rain ? Sneaky!

Don't Pass Me By - dotty piano, check. Silly cowbell, check Thumping intro, check

Birthday - high speed and breathless

Yer Blues - straight after and more the air fill we know and love

Sexy Sadie - dotty piano and thumpy ker thumpa batter tish

Savoy Truffle - hard to copy! Think of the timing to start this one, it's not simple.

Only A Northern Song - dotty organ this time, the swing in this fill is amazing

It's All Too Much - brisk, with a Rain feel

Come Together - although repeated throughout the song, its a hell of a start

Hey Jude - the sneaky delayed air fill intro, awesome

Something - the non-sneaky and perfectly timed air fill intro

Mean Mr Mustard - one of my favourites, its just got the instinctual style

Carry That Weight - this brilliant piece of joinmanship is the last note of Golden Slumbers into the song. Truly Ringo-only

and last I've Got A Feeling - he warms up to this one with a bit of time offset by the kick but you can't have that first chord without a batter de batter thumpa tish.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

'I Feel Fine ' between where the solo finishes and the whole thing seems to be stammering before Ringo kicks it into groove again.

'With A Little Help From My Friends ' - the only part of the song that holds any interest for me.

Well, "Rain " obviously, and "She Said She Said " (maybe Ringo's all-around greatest performance). And the much-heralded-already "Hello Goodbye " stuff, and the ass-backwards "Blue Jay Way " fills, even though some claim his timing is off occasionally (which I don't hear myself, maybe because it's during the free-time transitions from verse to chorus). Also, I love the simplicity of the hammering on the snare in "Good Morning Good Morning ". And there's something about the simplicity of the emphatic fills in "I Saw Her Standing There " that gets me EVERY time. 

Also, I love the deliberate alteration of fills in "Ticket To Ride ". And there's something about that bit in "From Me To You ", the transition from the second repetition of the bridge into the final verse, that's always fascinated me - the way it seems like Ringo's about to lose the beat entirely only to pull it back into place just in time. I'm not sure if maybe it was a mistake that he overdubbed - probably not, but it has that feel to me.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I agree with She Said She Said being Ringo's best.

Only A Northern Song seems to be a more sedate drumming version of She Said She Said .
