I love Weight Of the World and the album it comes from "Time Takes Time". It would be great if Ringo could work with Jeff Lynne again some day.

I don't mean to denigrate Ringo's version, but it does illustrate to me how really good Paul's version is. Wow!

"So, Ringo, you'll be dressed as a moustachioed Danny Zucco and you'll be in a haunted house with dracula and Barbara Bach...." I'd like to think some of Ritchie's videos were intentionally hilarious, but...

y'know...some dismiss ringo's output of the last decade or so. but this guy has been busy, and his music has been pretty decent as well.

where is laz? laz has gone on about how some of ringo's stuff has been every bit as good as paul's.

thanks, sir james.

I've got to say I don't remember La De Da being that interesting musically -- but it is, there's a lot going on

It's fair to say Ringo the fourth wasn't the best album ever
