Robert Bunter: Yeah. Not much to get excited about on this track. Unless you happen to like a band I like to call The Beatles. All the usual tricks are in evidence - stops and starts, studio trickery, handclaps, I'm going to go ahead and say the best thing about this song is the chord sequence on the fade in and fade out. I wish they'd taken that bit and written a different song around it. This song takes up space on compilations like "1962-1966" and "20 Greatest Hits" which would be better occupied by a nice gem like "I'll Follow The Sun" or "Tell Me Why," but what the hey.
Richard Furnstein: Can you picture the dolt that would have "Eight Days A Week" as their favorite Beatles song? Man, that imaginary scenario is making me so angry. I want to throw something. Are you kidding me? "Eight Days A Week"?
Also, "One thing I can say girl, 'Love you all the time.'" is one of the worst lyrics in their catalog.
