Default Favorite song written by one Beatle but sung by another

Not including songs like Octopus's Garden where Ringo got help from George, but still wrote the majority of the song. Or songs like What Goes On, where Ringo contributed to the writing, but John and Paul were still the primary songwriters.

Vote!

I voted for "Do You Want to Know a Secret" for two reasons: 1) it was my favourite song as a child because 2) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was my favourite film, and the line features prominently in the wishing well scene.

Tough question though! Despite having two very nostalgic reasons for voting for this song, I still had to really think about it for a while!!!

"...I get high with a little help from my friends..."

Ringo at his most lovable.

With a Little Help From My Friends. It's one of my favorite songs, and like Maia 66 said, Ringo at his most lovable.

"I'm happy" and "secret" are both my favorites, but I chose "do you want to know a secret" because is so romantic...

I'm Happy Just to Dance with You- Though it is arguable a throwaway tune, it makes me grin everytime I hear it.

My second choice is "Do You Want to Know a Secret?" because George sang it and because it's fun to sing into the ear of your sweetheart.

Oh, this was hard. REALLY hard. But I had to choose DYWTKAS because...Well, George just sounds so incredibly AWESOME in it.
