Eight Days a Week by The Beatles.

I’m pretty sure that when I was a kid this was my favorite song by The Beatles. I also remember oldies stations having “Beatles Weekend” and they’d play their songs constantly. It would have been great if the DJ’s had some variety though – I felt like they were always playing certain ones over and over again. All those radio stations are long gone now and I’m not even sure if they do any all-day Beatles stuff anymore. Anyone know?

Eight Days a Week was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It was released on their album Beatles for Sale in December of 1964. It became their 7th number one hit in the United States. Ironically, the Beatles never really thought that much of the song; especially John who called it, “lousy.’ For that reason, it was never performed live.

That explains why I couldn’t find anything.
