***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.
**i have no idea what you're talking about here - are you talking about the song the Beatles covered 'Boys' by Luther Dixon / Wes Farrell??
**what's the issue with that?
*Yep. Just seems weird that Ringo covered a Motown all girls band (The Shirelles) song about girls, and changed it to boys.
*As for 16, sorry, it just smacks the potential for statutory rape, which did happen, didn't it, to Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary? Kind of resonated with me.
Also, Bill Wyman of the Stones like them young, too.
Anyhow, I posted the message tongue in cheek. 16 is kind of retro, in a cool way. But I never got into Boys, with Ringo crooning about how boys are a bundle of joy!
