Throwback Thursday – Ringo Starr, “Photograph”

ringo-starrOf all of the solo careers after The Beatles, not many think of Ringo Starr. Photograph was a rather successful hit when it came to Ringo’s solo numbers, and the song’s Brass instrument influence and faded vocals most likely have something to do with it.

Photograph was one of my mother’s favorite songs growing up, though I never took the time to actually analyze it until recently. The chorus is catchy, and of a respectful length. The Saxa-bridge is enjoyable, and the instrumentals throughout are solid. Ringo’s vocals are rather rough, however.

So did you like the chorus? Good, because that is the last minute and a half over and over again. I won’t harp on that much, let me just skip right to the rating. Overall, I would rate this song at:


Song’s vocals are rather weak and faded behind so much instruments, though I did enjoy the song’s aura overall. You can check out the song below and take a trip down Memory Lane:
