A Hard Day's Night: A Record To Remember And A Movie To Forget

Yes, I know that many will say that I am sick, but it is the truth. The movie A Hard Day's Night is rubbish and, what's wrong with this? absolutely nothing, also the geniuses make mistakes some would say, and it is true. When such great success is achieved, and people around the world demand to see you and listen to you at all times, people often make mistakes or do things quickly and without thinking. There was not much to ask for to the Fab Four since they were musicians and not actors. They could have hired the best directors in the world at that time, but with a story (?) Like the one they wrote to make them appear on the big screen for the first time (with the sole purpose of satisfying the hunger of their fans) could not achieve something better than what is seen. At least, the fans had what they wanted: a reason to see their heroes for more than an hour and in giant size, but yes, enjoying the best they had written to that moment. Having said that, let's leave the comments about the film and go to the important thing: the songs from the album that bears the same name. It was 1964 and things had gotten out of control, The Beatles members confessed later that they could not believe it and, I wonder if, when they pretended international fame, they had an idea of what they would be able to conquer. I do not think so, even George Harrison once said that they were just a pretext that people took to go crazy. I guess he had some reason, this is how the masses are and, even more so in times when humanity goes through generalized depressions, there are few reasons to be happy, and if it is something as unusual, as it was back then the folk music from the quartet from Liverpool, people exploded in euphoria. No one is to blame, it's just that all the elements were put together to generate the perfect storm. Imagine some guys in their twenties who love the music of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Little Richard among others, who intend to learn to play some instruments and compose songs to imitate them and, suddenly, find themselves with the fact that they are better composers, they are better interpreting and playing the same instruments as them, and that moreover, people love them. In those years they were not yet aware of the phenomenon they would create and that still today has great defenders.

About

A Hard Day's Night is the third studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, released on 10 July 1964, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name. The American version of the album was released two weeks earlier, on 26 June 1964 by United Artists Records, with a different track listing. In contrast to their first two albums, all 13 tracks on A Hard Day's Night were written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney showcasing the development of their songwriting talents. The album includes the title track, with its distinct opening chord, and the previously released "Can't Buy Me Love", both transatlantic number-one singles for the band.
