Hi, I'm desperate to know which vocal parts are who on the song Boys on PPM . I can make out Paul and Ringo and can hear another voice but I don't know if it is John or George. And on the Boys page it says John and George sing. Can anyone help?

It sounds like it's Ringo on lead, with the other three doing 3 part harmony the "Bob-shoo-wop" and "Yeah, yeah, boys!" parts. John & George's voices kind of blend together, but if you listen carefully, you can make out all 3. Live footage of them performing it confirms this.

The entire solo section on this track has to be one of the most energetic in the entire Beatles catalogue, they are completely on it right from Ringo's "Alright George". The hollering cries, Ringo's drums and George's solo are incredible. Plus some of the guitar work during the track is so good to listen to.

There are a good few Beatles that I feel I should like but for whatever reason don't. 'Boys ' is one where I feel I shouldn't like it yet get caught up in its pure rocking fun and really enjoy it.
