On March 13th, 1965 The Beatles started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘Eight Days A Week’, the group’s 7th US No.1.

Paul McCartney would later say the name of the song came from a chauffeur who drove him one day. “I said, ‘How’ve you been?’. ‘Oh working hard,’ he said, ‘Working eight days a week.'”

Although it was a huge American hit, the group did not think highly of the song and they never performed it live.
