Had to butt in and found this little quote from the link. Sorry Mairi. ;)

A violin is a fiddle; a fiddle is a violin. There are no differentiating features period. The only true reason you'd call one instrument a violin and the other a fiddle is the approach...someone who plays fiddle tunes, a fiddler, will address their violin as a fiddle.

Oh yeah, I knew that. It's just that in this context it's a fiddle. In Eleanor Rigbym, they're violins.

I grew up with fiddle music. ;)

I like the melody and Ringo singing is okay but......




The lyrics!

"You were in a car crash, And you lost your hair!"

I mean, what gives? Paul, John or George didn't say to him, "change that!?"

That lyric always makes me laugh. It's so bad that it's good.

It's a debate I have had a few times in the past with friends so I thought I'd highlight it. I know a few fiddlers who would hate to be called a violinist. lol

I like it. It fits in with most of Ringo's Beatle material--non-threatening, not deep, just Ringo. George paid him a compliment by saying that Ringo writes 'cosmically' without knowing it. He was referring to Octopus' Garden and the line 'we would be warm, below the storm.

Tho I prefer underrated material more than mainstream in general, I dont like Dont Pass Me By. It sounds childish (and it only works a little cos is Ringo who is singing).

Ringo could write better lines than the famous (at least in this thread) "You were in a car crash and you lost your hair" and better titles too

The "You were in a car crash and you lost your hair" is just Ringo's humour coming out. If, on Anthology III, you program your CD for A Beginning and then follow it with DPMB, you get a nice experience. A Beginning was supposed to introduce DPMB anyway. I still think backing vocals from John, Paul and George would have made it a lot better. Their harmonies on Octopus's Garden work fantastically well.

Quote from: An_Apple_Beatle
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?

Surprising view on the Beatles splitting! If some of Lennon-McCartney's lesser compositions could have been dropped in favour of some of Harrison's better compositions that would have been nice. All Things Must Pass instead of Dig A Pony, or Maxwell's Silver Hammer, perhaps. I'm still a Ringoite, and still think his own songwriting could have been fostered more.

Everyone I talk to says it's one of the worst Beatles songs, but I quite like it! What's the deal?


You were just a kid at the time, Mairi, but you sure had good taste!

Yes m'am!!

In addition... I can't stand the Inner Light! No matter how hard I've tried to adapt to the style and the production it's just too obnoxious. George should have named it "Chalk on a Blackboard"!
