“A Hard Day’s Night” is a song by the English rock band The Beatles. Written by John Lennon, and credited to Lennon-McCartney, it was released on the movie soundtrack of the same name in 1964. It was later released as a single, with “Things We Said Today” as its B-side.
The song featured prominently on the soundtrack to the Beatles’ first feature film, A Hard Day’s Night, and was on their album of the same name. The song topped the charts in both the United Kingdom and United States when it was released as a single. Featuring a prominent and unique opening chord, the song’s success demonstrated that the Beatles were not a one-hit wonder in the US.
Elvis Costello is back in Barcelona five years after his last visit. He’s coming armed with his greatest hits, and taking a musical look back at his extensive career, along with his band The Imposters. One of the most influential writers of all time, Costello has recorded more than 30 albums and has worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, TonyBennett, Brian Eno, Bill Frisell, Buch Bacharach and Rubén Blades, among so many others. He’s joining in the Pedralbes Festival with a good dose of pop, rock, new wave, country and punk, playing every instrument he touches with precision, be it guitar, piano, bass, drums or harmonica. And wearing those glasses, of course.
