If you have ever wondered how the Beatles got that weird sound at the beginning of “Hard Days Night”, it seems its taken over 40 years, a professor and some advanced analytical modeling to figure it out.
Little known fact is that the Beatles (Ringo really) used the phrase “Hard Days Night” to describe playing gigs. The director Richard Lester heard the term and thought it would be a good title for the film. He then asked John and Paul to go and write a song with that title. They found him the next morning and played him the song. Most people have differing opinions on how the song title and film came together, including the Beatles themselves but I believe the version from the Bob Spitz book, (The Beatles by Bob Spitz).
