Maybe listening to some of these Ringo lyrics would bring on a similar reaction.
Yeah, and Lennon wasn't shy about doing it either (Glass Onion...How do You Sleep), but at least it was in the same era. I watched him on Letterman last night, and he's just old Ringo. I love him and all, but to see him ding out front and then go to his kit with a minute left in the song was somehow kind of sad. Kind of like if Paul was singing at a mic sans instrument and then picking up the Hof for a few notes at the end.

So Kyle wrote that Ringo's latest album rocks - that's great news !
If at nearly sixty-five (!!) Ringo can rock, it makes me very happy !!

He'll never make me sad !! Even if he acts clumsy sometimes or seems to be acting silly or naive or plugging his album, so what ??
As long as he's not doing anything nasty or obcene or evil (and we know he'll never be that way), as long as he's not getting senile (God help him not to, ever).....

Yeah, that's exactly the way I think about it. Ringo's just being Ringo. It will hardly be the "coolest" album you've ever heard, but it has a lot going for it too.
I needed comfort of love just to get me some piece of mind.. wo-oh

I ordered the dualdisc from amazon.
and time takes time also...

can't wait.

p.s: references to history are cool(when ringo does them, because he was there), "Remember when i said 'it don't come easy' that seems so long ago. Well, nothing's changed and if you don't believe me, look out your window."
from the first track of RingoRama, very cool.

CHOKE!! They don't reference history...they reference songs from the past, which are fiction. It just "rings" so hollow.

"Time Takes Time" is an EXCELLENT album !! Ringo's assembled a great cast and got great support from plenty of capable hands there. Further, his contributions (i. e. tracks) are excellent !!. I think it's his best album since "Ringo" (1973) !!

But, the songs ARE history.

history/past, almost the same thing.

I'm not very much into Ringo's solo stuff - neither country nor this old-fashioned kind of style he apparently loved are really my cup of tea. But I must admit that what I have heard of "Choose Love" so far sounded quite OK, especially the title track. This might be my first Ringo album :)
It's the start of a journey
To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...

Are there any special guests/musicians on "Choose Love" besides the Roundheads ?

Congratulations, Ringo ! You're sixty-five today !!!!

You're all purity unfurled
all over this world
eyes that sparkle and shine....
you're sixty-five, you're so beautiful
and you're so fine !!
