Tricky one this as they are all good songs. I went with Fixing a Hole.

Time to admit this is the one Ringo song I’m not defending.

I much prefer the sprightly Beatles version to that overwrought cover.

Where you say 'sprightly' I hear it as uninvolved. They kind of throw it away.

I'm no Ringo fan by long chalk but he is quite endearing here. My favourite on the side.

With doc on getting rid of the title song

Friends in both its original and Joe cocker versions are personal faves, so I won't be voting it off. Obviously, I still wish it was a buck owens cover instead.

With a Little Help. It's not my cup of tea at all.

Fixing a Hole deserves to stay, love that tune.

I voted for the title track because I like the reprise on the flipside better (it rocks hard).

As a general aside, Ringo's drumming on this LP is incredible: both in regards to his playing and the production.

As the Beatles' music evolved beyond basic rock n roll, Ringo's percussion became more apparent and impressive, without being some kind of Peart spotlight performance. He complemented what was going on around him.
