Ringo (quote)

I think that was a nicely appropriate picture, SB, and a great song by George. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I don’t know if I would have got the answer without the All Things Must Pass clue, but that’s what clues are for after all. ahdn_john_08_gif

First thought:

An octopus has 8 arms.

This octopus is camouflaged to appear blue.

The working title of the HELP! movie was 8 Arms To Hold You.

In the opening scene, Ringo’s door and living space are blue.

Ringo’s first line of dialogue is “Someone’s got hold of my finger“.

That’s an inspired suggestion, SB.  It really deserves to be the right answer, but it’s not what I have in mind.

The only direct quote from Ringo I can find is “I think if a spaceship comes down it’ll probably be the octopuses they talk to”. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

That’s an interesting one, SB.

No (x2):
“Someone’s got hold of my finger”
“I think if a spaceship comes down it’ll probably be the octopuses they talk to”

I wrote ‘Octopus’s Garden’ in Sardinia. Peter Sellers had lent us his yacht and we went out for the day… I stayed out on deck with [the captain] and we talked about octopuses. He told me that they hang out in their caves and they go around the seabed finding shiny stones and tin cans and bottles to put in front of their cave like a garden. I thought this was fabulous, because at the time I just wanted to be under the sea too. A couple of tokes later with the guitar – and we had ‘Octopus’s Garden’!

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

I like Ringo’s description of how Octopus’s Garden came about.  I’m thinking of an earlier Ringo quote – I’ll add a hint below.

No (x3):
“Someone’s got hold of my finger”
“I think if a spaceship comes down it’ll probably be the octopuses they talk to”
“I wrote ‘Octopus’s Garden’ in Sardinia. …”

Hint:
1964.

Hey Rich, perhaps this quote regarding Ringo’s reflection on the Beatles first plane ride to the US; “On the airplane, I FELT New York. It was like an octopus grabbing the plane. I could feel the tentacles coming up to the plane, it was so exciting”. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Yes, that’s the quote, @sigh butterfly. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

It’s interesting that Ringo described their first U.S. landing as like being grabbed and drawn in by an octopus, followed years later by Octopus’s Garden being his main Beatles songwriting accomplishment.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ringo recently told a story about his break in Sardinia.  Ringo said:

The nanny we had with us was carrying Jason who was a little kid, and we were just climbing over rocks, and then she stopped and she said: “Take the baby.”
“What?  Take the baby?”
She said: “TAKE the baby!”
So I took my son, and I said: “Well, what’s going on?” – and there was an octopus wrapped around her leg.  You know, I would have thrown that kid a mile.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Wow, that’s a cool/scary story. The plane imagery is also kind of frightening (little did he know). beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gifSolo_4.jpgImage Enlarger

Nice image clue Rich. This usually wouldn’t have come so easily, but I just finished reviewing the lyrics of every song on Side ! (looking for me light).
