Default How much into Ringo are you.

This is something I really want to know.
Do you have all his records/cd-s do you know all his songs, even the obscure ones, and know about all his films, or is it just more about how he looks.

I admit I don't know much about his acting career, I've seen some films, but not all and can't give much background on them.

I do enjoy most of Ringo's album,"Bad Boy" being a clear exception, and know a lot of his obscure songs, b.sides songs for soundtracks and such but don't owe everything of them.
My normal cd-colection is almost complete, I only need to have the hard to find, "Stop and smell the roses" cd and "Old Wave".

Well, Legs, I do believe I have all of Ringo's albums in either vinyl or CD form, but I admit to not listening to some of them that often, so I'm probably not super-familiar with what you call the "obscure songs". (Like I could probably sing you the chorus, but not the verses!) I think Ringo has made maybe 4 or 5 REALLY GOOD records, but the rest are kind of hit and miss - a few good songs, some filler - and I don't really listen to them too often.

I've seen most of his movies and actually have "Caveman" on DVD, but most of his films aren't things I'm going to watch over and over.

I've seen him in concert 7 or 8 times though - does that count for some devotion? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Ofcourse everything, from kissing a photo of Ringo goodnight, seeing him live, everything that shows how much youre into Ringo, or perhaps not.

Default Re: How much into Ringo are you.

I'm not really "into" Ringo, per se - but I have discovered a latent appreciation for country music since discovering he's made several music videos with other country artists when singing duets. The videos are fresh, the songs are wonderfully winning, and I just can't seem to get enough. I've even become acquainted with other country artists waiting for one of his videos to come up - that's a whole nother story, though.

I love "Caveman", and bought the DVD when I found it, our originally taped-from-TV copy having gone through several years of wear and tear. And even though I know the Beatles didn't really have a lot to do with the video, "Yellow Submarine" is still among my favorites, and I watch it primarily for "Ringo". He just seems the most realistically portrayed. Of course, we had to have the digitally remastered version, with it's slightly different arrangement, when it came out - it has surpassed even the original in my girls' view, and has been watched almost as many times as the original video has been, LOL!

The same is true of the old Saturday morning cartoons - "Ringo" just seems to steal the show [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I don't really think I'm "into" Ringo, so much as I identify with him so readily. Mostly the quiet one when it comes to business, when he's out there, he's trying to be entertaining wit-wise. He just always strikes me as not so much the showman as the shyman - and there's not much more I can say.

This is an interesting thread.

Caveman an excellent movie? I think that is a quantum stretch there.
