Early on in his solo career Ringo Starr did quite well-especially in the singles chart- of course not being a songwriter himself he had a little help from his friends- in this case while the song is credited to Ringo and George Harrison- but the music was written mainly by George. “Photograph” is one of my favorite ex- Beatles singles. It was on his most successful album- the self-titled Ringo. George and Ringo started writing “Photograph”- on a yacht after attending Mick Jagger’s wedding in France. There were a number of guests on the yacht which Ringo had hired and a number of people contributed to the lyrics. It would be Ringo’s first #1- he would have 2 #1’s in the US- and he did have a string of eight straight singles which made the Top 10.
