Did you know:
Like the title for 'A Hard Day's Night' the phrase 'Eight Days a Week' was actually conjured up by Ringo. In 1984 Paul & Linda McCartney spoke to Playboy about Ringo coming up with the phrase:
Linda: "Ringo also said, 'Eight days a week.'"
Paul: "Yeah, he said it as though he were an overworked chauffeur. (in heavy accent) 'Eight days a week.' (laughter) When we heard it, we said, 'Really? Bing! Got it!'"
The song may not seem as important as some of their other songs but it is in fact very important. 'Eight Days a Week' was the first song that The Beatles hadn't finished writing when they took it to the studio. This allowed The Beatles to experiment with not only their recording in a studio but their writing as well. This wasn't the last time that The Beatles did this; it became very common later in the band's recording career.
