The Beatles are back on the top of the record charts in 1964. This time with “A Hard Day’s Night,” the title song to the movie of the same name. The song was written by John Lennon with only minor suggestions from Paul McCartney. The title comes from a malapropism attributed to Ringo Starr after a long session of recording music.

The song was the number one song on the Cash Box record chart for the weeks of July 19 – August 8. It was also at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart from July 26 – August 8.

The Beatles have their own website that has a link to iTunes which is the only official site that you can download Beatles songs.
