The Beatles – Eight Days a Week

First Hit #1: March 13, 1965

Bless you Ringo Starr. While the final member of the band to join, he did bring some odd malapropisms which had an uncanny ability to inspire hit songs. So Eight Days a Week, based on something Ringo said and again following the simple school of love song writing. It’s about loving someone more than is technically possible, which is a pretty charming sentiment and backs it up with a pretty solid arrangement. It’s not really the deepest song the band ever wrote, and definitely isn’t the best, but it’s charming and fun, and it works pretty great as a happy love song. There’s nothing wrong with those.
