Eight Days A Week

Song Info (from Beatlesongs):”Eight Days a Week” is on the Beatles For Sale album and was written mostly by McCartney with some additions by Lennon, who also sang lead on it. The title is a direct quote from Ringo, who was talking about being worn out.

This isn’t actually an official Beatles Week entry, I’m afraid. I had an overdue article that needed writing, so I did that instead.

However, the belated start lets me take advantage of a suggestion by Jeremiah, one I can’t believe I didn’t come up with on my own: in true Beatles fashion, Beatles Week shall henceforth be eight entries long, not five. It makes perfect sense, and I’m still kicking myself over not coming up with it!

So what is your favorite Beatles song? Leave it in the comments and it just might make this week’s list.

  1. The Bon says:

    Blackbird, I Will and Because are probably my most favorite songs.

  2. daniel says:

    Blackbird is an excellent selection, and very close to being my top.

    Rocky Racoon used to be the top – then again I also was young at the time.

    Right now I think it's I Saw Her Standing There as I've used it as a lullaby for my last 3 kids.

    And which song is your favorite dear Mup?

  3. Brian Arnold says:

    I'ma have to cop out and say "Yesterday" because, well, it's the only one I can think of the proper name for off the top of my head.

  4. MadMup says:

    Daniel – I'd hate to ruin any suspense there might be by revealing my favorite just yet. I am hoping to get to that one this time around :)

  5. Theo B. Scure says:

    There's no way I can narrow it down to one. But the top of the list would include: Dear Prudence, Across the Universe, Good Day Sunshine, and She's Leaving Home.

    One song. Ridiculous.
