I've always had a soft spot for "Beaucoups of blues" - it suits his voice

There is a wonderful bunch of songs on his "Goodnight Vienna" cd, and there is a track on there that gets me every time called "Easy For Me"", and it is simple a lovely little song. I can't remember who wrote it though.

"Photograph" is great. I like Ringo covering George's songs. He does them very good. Like "Wrack My Brain" for example, he pull it off, where I think people would have rolled their eyes at George if he sang it. That ws Ringo's edge in the Beatles, too. He be able to pul off the more ridicilous type of song "Octopus's Garden" or "Yellow Submarine" the others didn't want, and when Ringo did them, they were perfect for him and more magical.

I also think "Goodnight" from The White Album is beautiful.
