The Beatles: Yesterday

Sun Sep 30, 2001 1:01 pm

Today I downloaded a live version of the song Yesterday. It was the first time the Beatles performed it for a live crowd. They performed it for their audience before the LP came out, so before anybody had heard it.

At first, the crowd was ecstatic, but as the song went on, they were deathly silent. It is such a beautiful song, and there wasn't a sound as Paul McCartney sang it.

How many Beatles fans do we have here? I love their music.

Did you know that the working title of "Yesterday" was "Scrambled Eggs".


Scrambled eggs
Have an omelet with some muenster cheese.
Put your dishes in the washbin please
so I can clean the scrambled eggs.

Join me, do
There are lots of eggs for me and you
I've got ham and cheese and bacon too
so go get two and join me, do.

Fried or sunny-side
just aren't right. The mix-bowl begs.
Quick - go get a pan
and we'll scram-ble up some eggs, eggs, eggs, eggs.

Scrambled eggs
Good for breakfast, dinnertime or brunch
Don't buy six or twleve - buy a bunch
and we'll have lunch
on scrambled eggs.

The John, George, Paul and Ringo were/are certainly highly talented (particularily Paul, IMHO), and there's no doubt that they are responsible for a great deal of the growth and development of pop music during the mid/late 60s. Also, the Beatles were one of those rare groups that turned out hit-after-hit, with very few duds in between (although it goes without saying that name recognition greatly aided the chart success of much of their later work).

However, what I find frustrating about their music is that there is no one song which really serves as a showcase for their talent. Their work has to be viewed as a whole. I like most of the Beatles songs well enough, but for my taste, most are either a little too mainstream or too experimental.

Anyway, the long and short of it is, I respect the Beatles for their accomplishments, but I really don't go out of my way to listen to their music.

I love the Beatles, I was exceptionaly happy when I recently aquried a CD (Some burned experimental thing) with all of the Beatles music sorted by album & title and lyrics for every song.  Big thumbs up

I don't have a favourate song or album, I like there music as a whole. (Even though my friends have put together some comedic versions of "Yellow Submarine"  Big thumbs up)

It's amazing (and very sad) knowing that John Lennon was killed exactly 7 years before I was even born (I was born on December 8, 1987). His and the Beatles legacy will live on forever...

I like the FabFour too! Their songs are just great.

When I was a little girl my father played Beatles songs to me (don't know why) and I started singing along. I still know some of their songs by heart.

I also like the films. Btw, parts of "Help" where filmed at a skiing resort in Austria.

I can't really call myself a Beatles fan - all I have is the two double compilations (163-66, 67-69, I believe), but I sure like that...
