  • Ringo, who paid tribute to Sun Records and Memphis on his 2003 track "Memphis In Your Mind," told Billboard magazine that this song finds him returning to the sound of that city. "I called Glen Ballard to come on over and make a record, and I gave him a choice of two of my basic tracks I cut at home with Bruce," he said. "Glen chose this one and we turned it into 'Confirmation.' The original name for this track was 'Memphis' because it had that Memphis feel."
