Amazon.com: Octopus's Garden (8601400154731): Starr, Ringo, Cort, Ben: Books

#152: ‘Octopus’s Garden’ : Ringo’s song on Abbey Road. It was only the second song Ringo had written- he was given an assist in the writing by George Harrison. George would say of ‘Octopus’s Garden’-“‘Octopus’s Garden’ is Ringo’s song. It’s only the second song Ringo has ever written, mind you, and it’s lovely.” He added that the song gets very deep into the listener’s consciousness “because it’s so peaceful. I suppose Ringo is writing cosmic songs these days without even realising it.”

I'm Happy Just to Dance with You - Wikipedia

#151: ‘I’m Happy Just To Dance With You’- from A Hard Day’s Night- this was a formula- Lennon-McCartney song they was written for George Harrison to sing in A Hard Days Night. George at the time was still lacking in confidence as a songwriter. John Lennon didn’t think much of the song later saying “I would never have sung it myself.’ The only song on A Hard Day’s Night that I have ranked lower is “When I Get Home.”
