“Eight Days a Week”

What the Beatles said about “Eight Days a Week”

JOHN 1972: “Both of us wrote it. I think we wrote this when we were trying to write the title song for ‘Help!’ because there was at one time the thought of calling the film, ‘Eight Arms To Hold You.'”

JOHN 1980: “Eight Days A Week’ was never a good song. We struggled to record it and struggled to make it into a song. It was his (Paul’s) initial effort, but I think we both worked on it. I’m not sure. But it was lousy anyway.”

PAUL 1984: “Yeah, he (Ringo) 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!'” (Laughs)
