"This Boy (Ringo's Theme)".

OK, for the Birthday bloke (70 today!): This '63 Lennon composition was the B-side to "I Want To Hold Your Hand" in the UK. Performed during the Beatles 2nd appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Emulates Smokey Robinson. First Beatles tune to be commented on by a music critic - "pendiatonic clusters (!)". An instrumental version plays on "A Hard Day's Night" during the dedicatee's "big scene". B-day bloke? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman.
