H ard to believe, but Ringo was a hit-making machine in the mid Seventies and “No No Song” was something you looked forward to hearing on the radio. At least I looked forward to hearing it. Still do, actually, though they rarely play it anymore. The casual references to marijuana and cocaine were suitable to the times, a joke if you got it and a nod or a wink if you were the sort of blind horse who thought Ringo would never do drugs. The B side is “Snookeroo,” a song written for Ringo by Elton John and Bernie Taupin (and, yes, we’ll add an Elton John discography here soon). It’s one of the best cuts from Goodnight Vienna and actually served as the second single in the UK, making this US release something of a two-fer.
