    That these four amazingly talented musicians came from the same city on Earth simply astounds me to this day. Maybe there are reasons that I don't know to prevent Ringo from being knighted, but it seems only fair to me. "Sir" him too, please.

    I guess you have to be old enough, some of the kids in the front row have no idea who he is.

    I was grabbed by this song, in my selfishness I thought it was all about me. Bet I wasn't the only one!

    Not a favorite singer, but a favorite torch song.

    There's something about, how to say this, her lack of performance, more like she's singing to her-self. I like it.

    Didn't even know this one was there to remember. This lady was huge in the fifties.



    Patti Page with a hold over from WWII. Notice that all "threats" to "him" are reduced to manageability in that he only requires companionship, By far less dreadful than a raging war.

    Well dog my cats! Yay!

    At the memorial show for George Harrison at the Albert Hall Mr McCartney noticeably snubbed Ringo. Ringo simply looked confused for a moment. I don't congratulate Paul McCartney for this, I think it was a big cheap shot.

    Thanks for explaining it, I really like it now. Not so much, yeah I'm a spoilsport sometimes.
    He does handle playing cards very impressively.

    Lets be honest.. He makes the biggest mess of a deck of cards we will ever see.
    But seems to know where every card in that mess is!

    But mostly... I just really like this guy, I love his sense of humor!

    I foolishly thought that his contortions were part of a shtick. No, the guy really had to go through a LOT to perform.

    The first time I've heard this. I too misjudged the situation. Oh Shit! No wonder I was the only one commenting upon it!

    Once upon a time I said I thought it was shtick to one of my music teachers. She disabused me of that notion. Glad to pass it along! He's one of the greats, contortions and all.

    I'm sure that many people think or thought he was just "being original." I'm glad that I found out that it wasn't at all part of an act.
