T ime has swallowed this flavorless jam, which at one point fed the faithful much as Paul’s little lamb or John’s cold turkey. Me, I’d rather give peace a chance or do it in the road when I’m in the mood for repetitive chants from the Beat’s. The real attraction here may be the B side, “Blindman,” a sour song with synthesizers and some strange sounds. Ringo usually avoided the “weird for weird’s sake” aesthetic that most drummers adopted in solo outings (Keith Moon, Ginger Baker), but this one’s pretty weird. Last time I checked, “Blindman” was only available on this single, which makes it a collectible in my book. Note: I'm told that Ringo has said "Back Off Boogaloo" is about Marc Bolan. (Thanks to Pete Landers.)
