- ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ by The Beatles epitomises how they were living in 1964, reflecting the constant non-stop work ethic they had at the height of Beatlemania. Whilst the track is an eye-opening ditty about the stresses that came with their sharp rise to stardom, it’s the ear-piercing opening chord from George Harrison that gives ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ it’s poetic voluptuousness.
