Song of the Day #215

Song of the Day: Yesterday is credited to both John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but was actually a McCartney solo in words, music, and performance. It was not included on the American release of the soundtrack for the movie "Help!" but was released as a single that spent 4 weeks at #1 on the Billboard pop chart. It has been recorded in many "cover" versions, making it the "most covered song in history," according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Probably because it's just a great song. (Oh, and a belated happy birthday to my pal Aeon!)
