It's been named the No. 1 pop song since 1963 by Rolling Stone and MTV. HEATHER MALLICK examines the genius and the staying power of Yesterday, the most covered tune of all time

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, Now it looks as though they're here to stay, Oh, I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be, There's a shadow hanging over me, Oh, yesterday came suddenly. Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday. Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play Now I need a place to hide away, Oh, I believe in yesterday. There's really no need to reprint the lyrics of Yesterday. You know them, even if you don't know that you know them. When you see them printed, your brain automatically plays the tape for you, and will probably do so for the rest of the day or week (sorry about that).
