You and Me (Babe) by Ringo Starr – ***

First released: 1973

George Harrison returns again on Ringo’s Ringo with this final sign-off song co-composed with Beatles’ roadie Mal Evans, that’s sole purpose seems to say thanks to everyone who helped out on the album. It’s a very Harry Nilsson thing to do and why not, Richard Perry produced this and Nilsson’s early albums from around this time, and everyone probably thought it was a great idea. It’s kind of silly and limits airplay on the radio. I wonder if Ringo would consider performing this in concert? Probably not, since "With a Little Help From My Friends" is utilized for the same purpose.
