Gimme Five: Ringo Starr singing songs by the Beatles

As with the decades-old hit solo album for which it’s named, Ringo Starr’s forthcoming Ringo 2012 includes an array of name guest stars. Unfortunately, unlike 1973′s Ringo, none of those friendly assists come from his fellow ex-Beatles. Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart and Kenny Wayne Shepherd are fine, and all. But the truth is, the combination of Starr and material written by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison has provided Ringo with many (some might say most) of his career highlights.Here’s our take on the Top 5 — with five more honorable mentions. We’ve left off, but only reluctantly, songs written by Starr or others that simply featured fellow Beatles — namely, “King of Broken Hearts” with Harrison from 1998′s Vertical Man; 1960s-era Beatles cover songs like “Matchbox” and “Act Naturally,” which hit for Carl Perkins and Buck Owens, respectively; Ringo’s fun 1974 take on the Platters’ “Only You” with Lennon; or the terrific “Walk With You” with McCartney from Y Not in 2010.
