In 1965, the Beatles had the UK Xmas number 1 with their double A-sided single “Day Tripper”/”We Can Work it Out”. I am a big fan of both of these songs, particularly “We Can Work it Out”. They were released on the 3rd of December, perfect timing to try to get the coveted no. 1 Christmas slot, which they succeeded in doing. I have blogged about “Day Tripper” here, as it is at number 39 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest Beatles songs. “We Can Work it Out” is also in the list, but I am yet to blog about it in my countdown.
This double A-sided single was released on the 3rd of December 1965. It was number 1 for 5 weeks in total. Here is the cover of the UK release of the single.
Here is a video of “Day Tripper”. Enjoy!
