"Eight Days A Week" by The Beatles

OK, more Fabdom: Two versions exist as to the inspiration for this 1964 Macca composition. One is a malapropism from Ringo and the other a quote from a chauffeur that drove him to John's house. We'll never know. Released in the UK on "Beatles For Sale" and in the U.S. on "Beatles VI". Never released as a single in the UK, in the U.S. it topped the charts in '65 with "I Don't Want To Spoil the Party" as its B-side. FIRST song that The Beatles took to the studio unfinished to "polish" during the session and the FIRST Beatles song to begin with a "fade-in".

Yesterday's answer: "Save The Last Dance For Me". I had the privilege of seeing Bucky and John Pizzarelli in Ames shortly after moving to Iowa 30 years ago - now, THAT'S GUITAR!
