Photograph – Ringo Starr

Australian Charts:
Photograph hit no 1 on the Go-Set National Top 40 in February 1974.

Photograph by English rock musician Ringo Starr was released as the lead single from his 1973 album Ringo. Starr co-wrote it with George Harrison, his former bandmate from the Beatles. A signature tune for Starr as a solo artist, “Photograph” was an international hit, topping singles charts in the United States, Canada and Australia, and receiving gold disc certification for US sales of 1 million. Music critics have similarly received the song favourably; Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic considers it to be “among the very best post-Beatles songs by any of the Fab Four”.

Ringo Starr and George Harrison began writing “Photograph” on a luxury yacht in the South of France in 1971.
On the recording in 1973, Harrison added harmony and backing vocals.
