|| February 11, 1963: Ringo took lead vocal for the first time in the recording studio on the Shirelles' 'Boys', recorded in just one take, although because the song required a faded ending this was done at the remix stage, on 25 February.
—The Beatles Recording Sessions, Mark Lewisohn, 1988
|| Any one of us could hold the audience. Ringo would do 'Boys', which was a fan favourite with the crowd. And it was great though if you think about it, here's us doing a song and it was really a girls' song. 'I talk about boys now!' Or it was a gay song. But we never even listened. It's just a great song. I think that's one of the things about youth you just don't give a shit. I love the innocence of those days.
—Paul McCartney, 19__
