The legendary Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr, had a new interview with Jim Farber de Parade and first revealed his favorite song of The Beatles. According to Ringo, “Rain” is the best song of The Beatles.
Here is the conversation below.
“In the same way that the Let It Be film was seen as a sad end to the Beatles, many originally saw 1968’s White Album [officially titled The Beatles] as a chronicle of a band coming apart. Was that accurate?”
“We were not falling apart at all until we split. We played together right up until that. I love the White Album. I mean, Pepper [Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band] was great, but there was a lot of sitting around. We were like studio guys. This time, we were back to being a band. People say, “What’s your favorite song on there?” I love “Yer Blues.” We’re in a six-foot room—amps, drums, vocal mics. No separation. It was like, “Yeah!”
“What’s your favorite Beatles song of all time?”
“There are too many. I like to say “Rain.”
“What’s your favorite Beatles song that was sung by you?”
“I think “With a Little Help From My Friends.” It’s given me a whole career. I’m thankful many a time for that.”
