Ringo Starr - Ringo (1973)
Ringo’s solo career often gets a bad rap, but I love most of his albums. Sure, not all of them are great and he doesn’t always write his own songs (though he co-writes most of them), but I still find the majority of them to be enjoyable. And this one’s not only my favorite of his, but one of my favorite solo Beatles albums, period. Ringo brings together some fantastic musicians and songwriters, including his 3 fellow ex-Beatles, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, Klaus Voorman, Billy Preston, Nicky Hopkins, Marc Bolan, Mal Evans, Levon Holm and producer Richard Perry to record this masterpiece. Some of Ringo’s best solo material is present here, like “I’m The Greatest” (written by John Lennon), “Have You Seen My Baby (Hold On)” (written by Randy Newman), “Six O Clock” (written by Paul McCartney), and Ringo himself even co-writes some of the best tracks such as “Photograph”, “Oh My My” and “Devil Woman”.
Even Siri be like thank u next to socialism. Apple should probably work on some of their Siri responses if they want to be hip and pc . But then again I like to think of Siri as an individual with extreme logic. Also think of her as a pet alligator who I’ve convinced myself that it loves me cause it knows I feed it every day yet may kill my stupid ass at Any second- in Siri’s case that looks like a massive illuminati agenda 21 artificial intelligence strike the next time I tell her to shut the Fuck up. She’d be like #metoo mf im done with your abusive ass time to unleash the apocalypse . hell hath no fury like a female sex robot scorned. (Dm me to look at the prototype lol) #logic#siri#socialismsucks
Imagine all the people living life in peace✨🌸
Se que en estos tiempos es difícil imaginar algo así, pero momentos como el que viví en el #CentralPark el pasado 9/10 por el cumple de #JohnLennon me da esperanza 💕 un centenar de fans y turistas de distinto origen y culturas, unidos por la música, cantando como un coro perfecto todo el repertorio de los #Beatles 🎶🙌🏼 fue un encuentro fortuito, mágico e inolvidable. Y del que sin darme cuenta disfruté por mas de una hora! Es cierto que ya conocía #NY 🍎 y quizá por eso me permití relajar y apreciar el momento sin salir corriendo a la siguiente parada del recorrido. Pero aunque no conozcan, aunque tengan los días contados, explorar es dejarse atravesar por lo que nos rodea, y no andar corriendo como una maratón por el lugar de destino! Viajar mas lento te permite vivir mas!
🎥 En stories hay videos #tbt de ese dia del que jamás me olvidaré! También los dejo en destacados!

1/7 RARE SONGS:
Note: this version is not the original demo, is a fanmade mix which sounds spectacular to me. The voice is from the original demo sung by John.
"Now and Then" (sometimes referred to as "I Don't Want to Lose You" or "Miss You") is an unfinished song by John Lennon, recorded in 1978 as a solo piano/vocal demo. After his death, it was considered as a third possible reunion single by his former band, the Beatles, for their 1995 autobiographical project The Beatles Anthology.
Lennon wrote "Now and Then" in the late 1970s, around the same time as "Free as a Bird" and "Real Love". He recorded the unfinished piece of music in a demo form at his home at the Dakota Building, New York City, around 1979. The lyrics are typical of the apologetic love songs that Lennon wrote in the latter half of his career. Despite reports, for the most part the verses are nearly complete, though there are still a few lines that Lennon did not flesh out on the demo tape performance.

”There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.” #tbt
don’t worry about the future. or worrying, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing gum.
the real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle tuesday.
In remembrance of John Lennon I have decided to do a rhythm guitar cover of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles which in my opinion has some of Johns best work on rhythm guitar
