I like the Beatles version. Rolling Stones don’t have Paul McCartney singing the chorus.

Although the Stones do it better than Ringo does today.

I’m currently in a self debate over which version is better – The Stones or The Beatles? I love both BTW   

They’re both great for different reasons. It’s like Derek and the Dominoes electric Layla versus Eric Clapton acoustic Layla.

I don’t like Mick Jagger’s mouth. And I don’t think Mick is a real Elvis fan.

Rerail the thread, quick! a-hard-days-night-paul-4

I like this song, when it comes on I automatically start tapping my feet. It’s a great number to Twist And Shout to, as demonstrated in the club scene of AHDN

Now of course, I never heard the original OR the Stones version first. I heard THIS version:

My dad bought us that album, which I believe is Can The Can, an Australian pressing that has unique songs. Terrific album, but what a dodgy-looking bad haha.

Did John or Paul ever apologize to the Rolling Stones for writing this song for them?  

Or to Ringo for that matter?

I like the scene in The Rutles where Mick Jagger is talking about “Ron and Dirk” writing a song for them in about five minutes… “and it was horrible, so we never recorded it”.

I don’t mind that it’s no masterpiece in songwriting – it’s got a chant and a riff and s groove, and great rocking performances have been built on less.  (I find the Stones version inferior overall, but give ’em full credit for turning the grunge and guitar volume WAY up, past where our boys had been allowed to.)

It may come as a surprise given some harsh criticisms I’ve made of other songs but I agree with @vonbontee, it’s a pretty fun song. It serves as a soundtrack of the early 60s and it’s pretty dancy. Also short, it knows it’s no masterpiece.
