To think that The Beatles recorded 12 LP's, one major EP (Magical Mystery Tour) and a score of singles that were not on the LP's, pretty much all of them undisputable and enduring classics, during a nine year period, is beyond comprehension. This was during the 1960's, a decade in which pop music to a large extent was invented, but still... it's mindboggling. They also made five films during these years, and 1964's A Hard Day's Night was the first. The title track is a prime example of their songwriting skills, written by John Lennon, but as always credited to both him and Paul McCartney. 49 years on it sounds as fresh and wonderful as ever.
