It Don't Come Easy

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: It Don't Come Easy (1971)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This was Ringo's first big hit as a solo artist. Who is your favorite member of his old, very famous group, The Beatles?
2) In this song, Ringo sings that you have to pay your dues. Do you belong to any organizations that require you to pay dues?

3) He also sings, "you don't have to shout." When did you last raise your voice?

4) Ringo has two piercings on each ear and one tattoo on each arm. Do you have more piercings or body art?

5) Ringo gave his first wife, Maureen, a one-of-a-kind birthday gift. Frank Sinatra made a recording of "The Lady Is a Tramp" personalized to her. Tell us about one of your most memorable birthday celebrations.

6) Ringo appeared as Mr. Conductor on Thomas the Tank Engine. He recorded the narration for the entire first season in just a week. Tell us what you did last week.

7) Ringo also did the narration for Ladybird children's books. Do you like audiobooks?

8) As a boy in Liverpool, Ringo loved watching American westerns. His passion for the genre is reflected in the outfit he's wearing on the sleeve for "It Don't Come Easy." Do you like cowboy movies/shows?

9) You know what else don't come easy? Nine questions every week. Crazy Sam has heard it all: this meme asks too many movie questions, too many questions about sports, too many questions that sound familiar ...  OK, now it's your turn. Help a tired meme mistress out. Contribute a random question that is not about movies or sports (pro or collegiate) and has never been asked before on this meme. Sam will compile these for an all-random Saturday 9 in November. That way she'll get a much-appreciated week off. Thanks for your help!

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Well now I'm curious about that comment ;)

I like your questions, even if I didn't know that the NBA was the National Bowling Association. People don't like the questions, they don't have to play along. Keep going and thank you for your efforts.

Thanks Sam! I agree with CountryDew! If people don't like your questions, they don't have to play! Good grief! Love what you do here!

I too want to know what up with that first comment.

But mostly I'm wondering why you'd ask THAT song be recorded for your wife, Ringo? Of all the possible Sinatra songs... :-)

Thanks, Gal. You do a great job!

I agree with the others, esp Anita. Don't like the questions? Don't play, sheesh. It's not that hard. :/
