How Paul Wrote “Yesterday” By Samuel T Goldberg, MD intrepid reporter Sglmn61@aol.com June 14, 2010, marked the 45th anniversary of Paul McCartney’s recording of the song, “Yesterday”, at Abbey Road Studios in London. Voted the #1 Pop Song of all time by MTV and Rolling Stone Magazine, "Yesterday", according to the Guinness Book of Records, has been covered over 3000 times. Paul’s genius residing more in music than words, he nevertheless was able to adorn this beautiful melody with compelling lyrics, spare and evocative, leading generations of critics to wonder: What was going on in his life at the time that could have inspired him so? After much toil rummaging through the archives and stacks of London bookstores, butcher-shops and pubs, I have uncovered seemingly reliable evidence, a long-discarded reel-to reel tape that, alas, has since been destroyed by an unanticipated eruption of sunspots. Nevertheless, I’m daring to offer the account which follows. Be forewarned, however: as plausible as this report may appear, some details may require further corroboration. Apparently Paul and his girlfriend, Jane, were lounging about at breakfast, still in their bathrobes after their morning showers. Jane's parents, Dr. and Mrs. Asher, had gone off to church, so the kids had the run of the neatly manicured Tudor house___ Despite their happy acceptance of her clean-cut, sometimes cheeky but generally cherubic boyfriend, Jane would never have felt so free if Mummy and Dad had been at home. Jane: Paulie? Paul: Yes, Dear? J: Why were you chatting so long with that brunette at the Cavern the other night? P; Oh, Darling, come on, now, you can't be jealous of Ringo's little sister! J: She didn't look so little to me. P: She was just seventeen! J: Oh, Paul__ You say you will love ME! Tell me I’m the only one. P: OK, Darling. I admit it. I did flirt with her. Had it been another day, I might have looked the other way. You’re making me say that I’ve got nobody but you. But, you're about to go do your theatre thing in Birmingham. Anyway, that girl and I___ We said our goodbyes the night before. I promise! J: You promised: Posh! That girls' just a low-life peasant! P: Hey! Tone it down! I know that she's no peasant! J: I don't know, Paul. When you held me near, you were so sincere: You'd be thinking of ME, if I had to go. But now, things seem different. I fear that one day you'll look, and see I've gone. Paul was stopped in his tracks by this comment. Hadn't he given her all his love? That's all he did! Putting on his most endearing pout, he tried to placate her: P: Tell me baby___ What's been wrong with you? Let me go on loving you. J: Don’t you know that love is to share? You don’t need me to show the way, love. P: Aw, come on, come on. Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you. J: Get away! You tell lies, thinking I can’t see. I gave you everything, and tenderly. I gave you most of my life, Paul. Sacrificed most of my life. P: I gave you everything money could buy! I don’t want to sound complaining, but you know___ You never gave me your money. I gave you all I've got to give! J: But money can't__ P: I know! I know! Don't say it! Jane looked at him searchingly, but with suspicion. J: What goes on in your heart? What goes on in your mind? I'm looking through you. Where did you go? P: Did I say something wrong? You ought to know that I’ve been good, as good as I can be. Try to see it my way! Paul was beginning to despair. After all her words of kindness, she no longer needed him. She'd changed, she’d changed. She wasn't the same. He was going to lose that girl, and now, frantic, all he knew to do was beg on bended knees. If she’d only listen to his pleas___ P: Is there anything I can do? Is there anything that you want? Did I tell you I need you, every single day? What can I do? what can I be? When I’m with you I want to stay here. Let’s both of us think how good it could be. But Jane wasn’t having any of it: J: Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die? Tell me why! I have had enough, so act your age! If only you'd treat me like you did the night before. Paul’s mind ached. Suddenly, he felt half the man he used to be. P: Look what you’re doing! Why do you have to go? J: I’m not going to say! Open up your eyes, now. Tell me what you see. P: There were birds in the sky. Love was in your eyes the night before. Listen to me one more time. How can I get through? Nodding her head from side to side, Jane looked down and pushed away her plate of scrambled eggs. J: In the beginning, I misunderstood, but now I’ve got it. Long ago, I knew someone, but now he’s gone. A great wave of sadness and loss washed through Paul. A shadow hanging over him, he murmured to himself, “She says I’ve hurt her so. She’s almost lost her mind. I think I’ve lost my love.” Dejected, he turned back to Jane and sighed, P: I just can’t go on, if you won’t see me. Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. J: I loved you! I loved you! That's all I want to say. Until you find a way. Maybe you should go to India, Like George, find Buddha or something. Suddenly, with a great whooshing sound, John appeared outside the window on a flaming pie, screaming, "I don't believe___ in Buddha!!" Resigned at last, Paul replied, "I believe in yesterday." There it is, folks. It seems pretty true to me! Sam Goldberg Clarksville, Maryland

In my opinion the Rolling Stones are exactly what the name implies stoned....throughout their entire career, especially that stupid stone faced drummer and spaced out keith richards........as for the rest ...well most are dead or look it.....the Beatles on the other hand are and will be the best song writers and singers forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the song, Thank You Girl. The song is one of my personal top ten.My reason is a long story and is to do with the early Beatlemania days. Ticket To Ride, Tomorrow Never Knows, and Two Of Us are also on my top ten list.

one of the biggest reasons I write songs is because of the Beatles.I made a visit to liverpool not to long ago, and on a ship from liverpool to Ireland I started thinking about how cool it was to walk down penny lane, and visit Strawberry Fields. A tune came in to mind, so I just couldn't help but complete it. I call it "She Loves You". Check it out for free @http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=431867 I've been up and down that laneOf childhood memoriesThe view's that still remain Of realities and fantasiesArouse my mind with sight's and sound'sBeneath the blue suburban skyIllumination is all aroundIn every picture your words describeChorusShe loves you - Yeah yeah yeahKeeps on playing in my headShe loves you - yeah yeah yeahprobably will until I'm deadI've walked through the fields of hopeAnd boyhood pleasantriesA life come in to scopeWith these legacies and destiniesremains the dreams of old and newLiving here in surrounding streetsInfatuation has more the growAs did the love for the Mercy BeatOh How It soothes MeOh How It moves meCheck it out for free @http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=431867 or buy it @ http://www.myspace.com/silverbeat2006

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The Beatles changed the music world entirely back in the 60's - the US went from mainly rhythm and blues, soul, and rock to the voice of the Beatles in just a few months. We were so fortunate to have had all four of them for as long as we did - and we are blessed to still have Paul and Ringo. What an awful time that will be when we have to let those two musical wonders take the path of John and George. Hopefully, they both will bless us with more music and memorable concerts before that time comes. As for the Rolling Stones - great music, excellent performances (especially Mick's dancing all over the stage!), terrific band - but TOTALLY different from the Beatles!! We have been lucky to have been able to enjoy such terrific music from both bands for over 40 years - and even luckier that they are still at it - and God willing, they will continue to bless the world with such terrific entertainment for as long as they live - I don't care how old they are - they still make terrific music!!!

I love the Beatles! They were and still are the best thing that has ever happened to rock music. I can't imagine what life would be without there influential tunes playing sweetly to all our ears. Who doesn't like the Beatles? Actually.. who doesn't LOVE the Beatles? No one will ever be able to re-write rock history or come close to the magic and beautifulness that was The Beatles xoxo Love you George (r.i.p)p.s. Oasis is great, you guys are great for looking up to the Beatles and making great music.

I am here to put my honest opion on the debate between the Rolling Stones and the Beatles?And who are the best?Every one has a different opinion.They may not be right but we have to respect other peoples's views.So I come here to put my point across and respect others!I have a Rolling Stones cd at home and it is fantastic.And i am a Beatle lover and have all their cds.But my views have changed over the years! I used to believe that the Stones were number two to The Beatles.But that view changed a very long time ago.The Rolling Stones dont get near The Beatles at all, in quality,creativity or excitement.The Beatles were always different.On a different planet.They were a one off and will be rememebered as something special.Something that will never be repeated, ever!I was a boy when they began and i grew up with them and i was so priveliged to have a childhood with them around me.I felt the excitement.I heard the music that influenced my life.The magic is of the music.I have heard their music millions of times but the crisp, fresh exciting sound is still there.Their music can reduce me to tears.Put shivers down my spine.The number two for me is the Beach Boys. Thier sound is so superior compared to the Stones.Brian Wilson is a genius and was influenced by the Beatles.He heard Rubber Soul and went out to try and better it and made Pet Sounds.The Beatles heard Pet Sounds which influenced them to write Sgt Pepper.So sorry, The Stones are number three for me. Today,you only have to see the demise of Top of the Pops to realize there is something seriously wrong with our music of today which leaves us with the great groups of the sixties.The Beatles were the leaders and still are!
