The internet thinks a Jeopardy! clue was wrong, but here's why those people were
What is Jeopardy! was right?
During Tuesday night’s Final Jeopardy! round, Alex Trebek gave the clue, “Complaints about heavy workloads inspired the titles of 2 songs by this group, No. 1 hits 7 months apart.” The answer was The Beatles, with the two songs being “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Eight Days a Week.”
But, many fans had a problem with the inclusion of “Eight Days a Week,” arguing it was a love song and citing the lyrics, “Ain’t got nothin’ but love babe, eight days a week.”
While viewers are right in their interpretation of the song’s content, the clue was about what inspired the song, which Paul McCartney has said was a phrase a chauffeur once said to him to emphasize how hard he’d been working.
Hopefully those on social media didn’t make too big a final wager.
