*With the Beatles, pining away for those 'Boys.'

*In his early solo years, lusting after 16 year olds.

*Kind of changes your mind about him just a bit, although Boys was based on the Motown song 'Girls.' It just seems inappropriate coming from a man in his late 20s, though - no other band that I can think of would have touched it.

*'16' is just plain old creepy.

They're both just innocent cover songs.
You're 16 is sung from the perpestive of another teen. In the early 70's fifties nostalgia was in vogue with the American Graffiti movie being a big hit. Ringo just jumped on the bandwagon and had a big hit with this song.
