Eight Days a Week - The Beatles (Lyrics)

"Eight Days a Week" was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon based on McCartney's original idea. The song was the band's seventh number 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, a run of US chart success achieved in just over a year. The track opens with a fade-in, marking the first time that this technique had been used on a pop studio recording.
