Yes Ram, I agree about the high note at the end of the song, I ever wondered that Ringo could do it.

Peace.


Ringo stated that it took a lot of coaching from Paul to make him sing it.

no one's ever mentioned "act naturally". I think that's another Beatles "departure" from their album Help! (although to some other tangent).

I once saw a music video of "Act naturally" with Ringo and some country artist (I think Buck Owens--I don't know my country music). One of the most entertaining videos I ever saw!

WAD, Maezie, I saw that too. Buck was a huge Beatlefreak and was quite honored that they cut one of his songs. Ringo's vocal and Paul's back-up are top drawer, but George steals the show. The guitar sound is solid cluck--to me it's a George song!!

Live footage of Act Naturally on the Anthology DVD was a bonus to me.

Yes, Boys would be my #4 and Act Naturally my #5. I'm surprised no-one's mentioned 'Don't Pass Me By', the first Starkey song to make it on a Beatles album. What do you think of that song?

It's OK for me. Probably noteworthy is the fact that ringo played piano and drums on the song....macca played bass and piano, and Jack Fallon played violin. I liked the intro and outro, too. The Book "Revolution: The Making of the White Album" mentions his distinctly drummer-like piano playing.

Well, it would be sacreligious of me to not like any Beatles song, lol.

Objectively, it's slightly on the boring sidebut it has that loopy production, so it still works for me. Ringo's singing is bang-on Ringo.

I suppose you know, he did share songwriting credit on What Goes On and Flying.
