Hello, I'm new.
I reackon "Don't pass me by" is OK (it fits well in it's place in the album).
Octupus's Garden is a crime against humanity. One of those songs Rolling Stones farns drag up in arguements in the pub.

Don't Pass Me By should be considered an early country rock classic by the Beatles with Ringo on vocals along with being one of his finest moments & one of the first songs he ever wrote.

It's not one of my favs, but I like it. I also like Good Night. At first I thought it was sung by Paul.  ;D

The version on Anthology III is better, because it hasn't got that irritating whining violin on it, and the focus is more on Ringo's voice because of it. Also it starts off withh Ringo's hard drum beats which sounds better too. On the Fly On The Wall free CD with Let It Be...Naked, John and Paul discuss it and say something about people in their local pub enjoying singing it. Sounds pretty much like a pub song come to think of it. A Hard Day's Write explains that Ringo wrote it in 1964, but couldn't get it recorded until 1968!

Just love the violin solo at the end....Other than that, it quite often gets a skip but I don't hate it.

i dont realy like it, ringo is for drums not for singing

ringo is actually a decent singer and not a bad songwriter. but being a drummer and singer, especially live, is very strenuous cause you have to keep the beat, whereas guitarists can think of the tune cause more often then not the tune that they play is the same as the lyrics they're singing. drumming and singing takes some real talent, and he does it beautifully.

Don't Pass Me By is a great song, but its dwarfed by the other three's songwriting.

I see what your saying but have to dis-agree with this drum and guitar thing. The dilemma is the same for both guitarist and drummer.

Knowing the melody helps both musicians. In some ways at least a drummer can just keep time (Even though Ringo had his fair share of time changes)...A guitarist can have time, pitch, harmony, melody, effects, vocals to consider all at once. Same with bass playing and singing which also takes great talent what with all the counter rythms, melodies and lyrics to remember.

It just applies to any musician. I wouldn't say one is harder than the other...You get better at doing it with practice. ;) How you show it is a different matter...Ringo was definitely a great drummer, average (Although sincere) singer and an occasional songwriter with mates who could make them songs into something great.

He is a great chorus singer. Most of his Beatle tracks are great sing-a-longs. I always remember Ringo's voice the most out of all of them in Carry That Weight.

Well, Ringo wrote it in 1964. If he had recorded it earlier it might have set an earlier precedent for Ringo as a band songwriter. The Beatles might have recorded more of Ringo's own ideas. I feel that the production it got could have been better. That annoying violin! Check out the Anthology III version without the violin. There could have been some backing vocals from the other guys. The kind of production Octopus's Garden got. It seems as though they just finally said after four years 'OK, Ringo, do your song then'. They just could have paid more atention to Ringo's ideas. I suppose in that way Ringo suffered from the Lennon-McCartney domination just like George did.

I wouldn't have said suffer. lol.... Ringo and George could have always left the group and formed their own if it was that much of a problem. Obviously Lennon and McCartney are going to put a lot of time into their own compositions. Why not?

It's not a violin, it's a fiddle.
