Everyone has certain songs that they prefer over others. This was the case with Ringo Starr as he preferred to perform John Lennon's songs over Paul McCartney's songs. Following the Beatles' split in 1970, McCartney, Lennon, and George Harrison all recruited Ringo to play on their solo material. However, he preferred playing for Lennon out of all of them.\r\n\r\nIn Lennon's final TV interview in 1975, he talked about how happy he was to see Ringo's success. \u201cI\u2019m most happy for\u00a0Ringo\u2019s success\u00a0because it always went round that Ringo was dumb but he ain\u2019t dumb. He just didn\u2019t have that much writing ability and he wasn\u2019t known for writing his own material.\u201d\r\nRingo Starr preferred to play John Lennon's songs\r\n\r\n\r\nSo, naturally, Ringo was caught between three different people who admired him and his talent but had beef with one another. In The Beatles\u2019\u00a0Anthology,\u00a0Ringo spoke out on the Lennon-McCartney partnership that so many Beatles fans are familiar with. More so, how that partnership began to fade and they would end up going their separate ways by the late '60s. \u201cBy then it was Lennon or McCartney. It was up to about 80% separately written songs,\u201d Ringo reveals.\r\n\r\nRELATED: This Is The \u2018Sgt. Pepper\u2019 Song That Paul McCartney Actually Wrote For Frank Sinatra\r\n\r\nBecause Ringo was so in-tune with each band member's songs, he could tell who was behind each one. \u201cI could tell which were John\u2019s songs, I always preferred to play on them\u2014they always had a bit more rock \u2018n\u2019 roll to them.\u201d In fact, "Rain" is Ringo's favorite Beatles song, written by Lennon.\r\nMore on the relationship between the band members\r\n\r\n\r\nIt certainly sounds like Ringo and Lennon had quite a great relationship when it came to personal life and also musical endeavors. \u201cThe four of us were great friends with a couple of side issues. And it was far out. So anyway, I didn\u2019t know how to act. And then I got back to L.A., and I grieved, and then, of course, you always go through the grief,\u201d Ringo says about the band's ending.\r\n\r\nOf course, we wish that the band didn't have to part, but it's likely for the best. Ringo still talks endearingly about his band members today.
