"Liverpool 8" is a song by Ringo Starr and is the lead track on his 2008 album of the same name. The song was also released in early December 2007 as a download-single. It was later released in physical formats (7" single and CD single) on 7 January 2008, a week before the release of the album. The B-side for the 7" is the third track from the album, "For Love". Despite the physical single being available for only 99 pence in the UK, it only reached number 99 there.[1][2] It is an autobiography of Starr put to song, with emphasis on his time with The Beatles. The title refers to the postal district of the Toxteth area of Liverpool in which Starr was born. The single was produced by Mark Hudson and Starr, and "overproduced" by Dave Stewart and Starr.[3]

As of 3 January 2008, the song was being played on Beatles Radio, a streaming radio station.

A promo video has been made which features Starr and Stewart.[4]
