John arranged this for Ringo. Another great John cover. Just love this.
Wiki: In 1974, Ringo Starr covered this song (b/w “Call Me”) for his album Goodnight Vienna at the suggestion of John Lennon. This version was released as a single on 11 November in the US,[nb 1] and it became a number six hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 and reached number one on the easy listening chart in early 1975. It was released in UK on 15 November.[nb 2] Lennon plays acoustic guitar on the track, and recorded a guide vocal which was kept by producer Richard Perry. Ringo did the spoken recitation on the repeat of the first half of the song. Ringo’s version was in a 2/44 compared to the Platters version of the song.6 Harry Nilsson sings harmony vocals and appears with Starr in the amusing music video filmed on top of the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles. Lennon’s vocal version appears on his Anthology box set, in 1998.
