Why Ringo Shouldn't Be The Most Underrated Beatle

Ringo Star is amazing like all of the other Beatles and here's why.

Why Ringo Shouldn't Be The Most Underrated Beatle

Ringo Starr is the forth member of The Beatles as a drummer and sometimes as a singer and song writer, but out of all of The Beatles, he goes as being the most underrated. Here are 11 reasons why, although underrated still pretty amazing.

1. When The Beatles met the Queen in 1965, most of them talked about it not being a great honor, but Ringo's response was hilarious.

2. He was accepted into The Beatles replacing Pete Best in 1962 after quitting another group that he was in.

3. Ringo went to India for a short time with the group, even though he had to leave early because he couldn't really eat anything there, so that's commitment.

4. He was quirky and relatable in A Hard Days Night.

5. He turned one of his best Beatles songs, that's also very underrated, into a kids book.

6. He had a good sense of humor and let himself be the subject to a lot of jokes in The Beatles films like Help! and A Hard Days Night.

7. On Please, Please me, he was a lead singer and did the drums for the song, Boys. It was a great song, but not as well known as other songs that he's done.

8. Ringo means apple in Japanese, so he did an apple juice commercial in Japan.

9. He sang Yellow Submarine, one of The Beatles most popular songs, and it's usually the first Beatles song people know.

10. He doesn't get enough credit for the songs he has written like, With A Little Help From My Friends and many others from Ultimate Classic Rock.


11. He is ALWAYS for peace and love.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
