Top 10 Ringo Starr Solo Songs Super List

The real secret of Ringo's youthful glow is his happy marriage to Barbara Bach (pictured), and their mutual rescue from a hell of drink and drugs

4. ‘Blindman’
From: B-side (1972)

Perhaps bitten by the bug with the Beatles films, as far back as 1968’s ‘Candy,’ Ringo had been delving into acting. In 1971, he landed himself a staring role in the spaghetti western-styled film, ‘Blindman.’ The film was never a box office hit, but remained of interest due to Starr’s role. Perhaps the best by-product of the movie came in the form of the title song. Written by Ringo, and helped out in the studio by longtime Beatles associate Klaus Voormann and Pete Ham of Badfinger, the song has a droning, almost hypnotic quality to it as synth, fuzz guitar and percussion pulse along. It originally appeared as the flip to ‘Back Off Boogaloo,’ and has remained in relative obscurity more than 40 years on. We think it should be heard.
