The Beatles Top 60 Solo Songs: #6: “Photograph’- Ringo Starr. Ringo has been absent from this countdown since checking in at #37 with “Oh My My.” “Photograph” from 1973’s Ringo album- was co-written by George Harrison [ Ringo got co-credit but c’mon George wrote most of this song}- and it went to #1 in the Billboard Hot 100. The song was written on a luxury yacht that Ringo had rented on the South of France in 1971 while attending Mick Jagger’s wedding. Cilia Black who was one of the many who heard the song on the yacht wanted to record it but Ringo declined- he was going to do it first himself- and good thing he did.

  1. I’d forgotten George had a hand in this…that explains a bit. While I wouldn’t put it quite so high in such a list myself, it is a very good song that coincidentally I heard on radio this morning. I listened thinking “this is a Ringo song that would have sounded fine on a latter Beatle album”.
