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.

Released on 10th July, 1964, the Beatles third album in less than eighteen months was timed to coincide with the cinema opening of their first movie. Of the album's 13 tracks seven were featured in the soundtrack of the film. It was also quite remarkable that for the first time on a Beatles album that all of the titles had been composed by John and Paul.

Produced by George Martin. Album A Hard Day’s Night. A Hard Day’s Night Lyrics. It's been a hard day's night And I've been working like a dog It's been a hard day's night I should be sleeping like a log But when I get home to you I find the things that you do Will make me feel alright

They had certainly found their musical voice before, but A Hard Day's Night is where it became mythical. In just a few years, they made more adventurous and accomplished albums, but this is the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory - for better and for worse, this is the definitive Beatles album, the one every group throughout the ages has used as a blueprint

A Hard Day's Night became their first album to consist solely of original material, and was The Beatles only release to consist solely of songs written by Lennon-McCartney. The title of A Hard Day's Night had been coined by Ringo Starr, and first appeared in John Lennon's short story Sad Michael in his first book In His Own Write. When film director Richard Lester announced it would be the title of The Beatles' first film, Lennon took up the challenge to write the theme song. Rather a feeble line about tiredness, I said.

The Beatles album A Hard Day’s Night was the The Beatles first record that consisted entirely of original songs. The first two Beatles albums Please Please Me and With The Beatles featured a mixture of songs written by the Beatles and well-known 1950’s and early 1960’s songs. The third song entitled Anna, on the Beatles first album was written by Arthur Alexander. It was followed by Chains, which was written by Carole King and Gerry Goiffin. Chains, was followed by Boys, which was composed by Wes Farrell and Luther Dixon. Wes Farrell would go on to compose many of The Partridge Family.

Years before the advent of DVD, A Hard Day's Night became the first major motion picture to be released in CD-ROM format for the home computer market, with supplementary material included. Of course, A Hard Day's Night will endure - simply because THE BEATLES endure, and this gives us the best sustained look at their performing prowess and all-around joie de vivre. The musical sequences in the film are simply glorious, particularly the orgiastic concert at the end, but even more muted moments such as when the Beatles sneak off to a nightclub to dance and intermingle with other youths to the soundtrack of their own songs; the scene provides a wonderful "you are there" quality to the partying and club-hopping side of Swinging.
