**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.

*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.
