Many albums have the tendency to become overshadowed by what came along with them, especially if that thing becomes more popular than the album itself. A Hard Day's Night fell victim to the movie that came along with its release even though the album is extraordinary. Many of the tracks were featured in the film however, though it didn't really do justice to many of the songs featured. The title track has to be the best on the album, full of youthful optimism and many different musical instruments. A Hard Day's Night was actually the very first album by The Beatles to include music written only by John Lennon and Paul McCartney- and although I would've loved to hear more from George and Ringo, the album still has that certain Beatles charm to it. Some of my favorites on the album include tracks like: "You Can't Do That," as well as "Can't Buy Me Love." A Hard Day's Night is a really unique and fun album to listen to, an album in which any fan of The Beatles can easily enjoy. I would highly recommend listening to the album even without seeing the movie, you just might get more out of the music. 5/5 @ShowMeTheMonet! of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Released 55 years ago - This album certainly proved to be a huge stepping stone in the accelerating success of Britain's "Fab Four" (aka. The Beatles).

If you like listening to the Beatles' songs from their early years, then, "A Hard Day's Night" (from 1964) is sure to appeal to your discerning musical tastes.

(*Be sure to check out the vintage "I Should Have Known Better" music-video*)

That amazing first chord of the title song has influenced so many guitarists. The Beatles show off their falsetto skills on TELL ME WHY; it is simultaneously hilarious,and entrancing, when they 'go falsetto.'

Hello, darlings! - Early British rock'n'roll that's now close to 60 years old, but, still worth a listen.

An excellent album of early Beatles music. Acting as the soundtrack to their first film, it's has excellent songs that showcase the sound of the early years as the Beatles hit their peak.

Released in 1964 - "A Hard Day's Night" is the 3rd studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name.

"A Hard Day's Night" is the first Beatles album to feature entirely original compositions.

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.

Lennon dominates the songwriting here, being the primary author of 9 out of the 13 tracks on the album, as well as being the lead singer on these same 9 tracks (although McCartney sings lead on the chorus part of the title track which otherwise is strictly Lennon territory).

An entertaining album. The US album is different in that it also includes some of the incidental music from the movie. That would have nice to have as well but you can get that from the very expensive U.S. Albums package.

The wonderfully fun soundtrack of a movie that, surprisingly, was wonderfully fun as well.
