Default Ringo covers...

O.K. so I borowed this from one of the other forums...

What are your favorite Ringo covers (Beatles + solo) ?

My favorites:

With the Beatles "Boys" (a lot of energy in that one !) and without the Fabs, "I keep forgetting" (I've always loved the songs of Leiber/Stoller. I love the way he did two different vocal tracks).


Others I like: "Matchbox", "Only you", "You're sixteen", "You belong to me" (nice slide guitar by George).

P.S.: Only 9 days until...

With the Beatles, TOTALLY "Act Naturally".

Outside The Beatles, "Only You (And You Alone)", "You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful And You're Mine)"... and most tracks of "Sentimental Journey"

While with the Beatles, I'd have to say "With A Little Help From My Friends".

As a solo artist, I'd pick "You're Sixteen" and "Only You". His version of "Hey Baby" isn't too bad, but not really a favorite of mine.

"With a little help from my friends" does'nt count, it was written by Paul & John specifically for Ringo, so it can not be considered a cover...right ?

Well then, I'll say "Honey Don't". ("Ah, rock on George, for Ringo one time.")
