Because six of anything is greater than five of the same thing and less than seven of them. Here you're talking about eighths, but it's equally true of songs, stars, or cows.

The greater the denominator the smaller its value. Since eight is greater than six the value of 1eighth is lesser than 1 sixth. Another way of saying, 1 eighth is nothing but dividing 1 into eight equal parts and 1 sixth is dividing into six equal parts. Obviously the 1 sixth part will be greater than one eighth. For eg. if you share a cake equally with eight friends, the slice be will smaller than when you share equally with six friends.
