As we all know, Beatles fans are batshit crazy. I’m going to go on a limb and say their music is good, but it’s a little overrated. Anyways, the last thing I want to do is piss people off, especially these Beatles fans. Too bad Jeopardy! doesn’t have the same conviction I do.
On Tuesday night, Final Jeopardy asked the contestants, “Complaints about heavy workloads inspired the titles of two songs by this group, No. 1 hits seven months apart.” The two songs referred to were “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Eight Days a Week,” but this led to some chaos on social media.
Two of the contestants provided the right answer, but fans were still pissed about “Eight Days a Week” having nothing to do with actual labor.
Eight Days A Week wasn’t about working hard; it was about how much he loved her. That’s why someone may not have guessed the Beatles. #jeopardy

While the “Eight Days a Week” lyrics may not be about work, the title of the song was good enough for the Jeopardy! writers. Paul McCartney has said that the tile was inspired by a comment from an “overworked chauffeur,” so Jeopardy! has defended itself on the grounds of that inspiration through a statement to Money, which is fucking ridiculous.
Stay away, crazy Beatles fans. At the end of it all these people still walked away with prize money and you didn’t.
