"Can't Buy Me Love" was released in March 1964, included on the group's album A Hard Day's Night (1964). While in Paris, the Beatles stayed at the five-star George V hotel and had an upright piano moved into one of their suites so that songwriting could continue. It was here that Paul McCartney wrote "Can't Buy Me Love". The song was written under the pressure of the success achieved by "I Want To Hold Your Hand", which had just reached number one in the United States. The song became another big success worldwide with no.1 positions in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Ireland, and New Zealand.
