Yesterday and Today
As many media outlets have reported and even Google has celebrated with a special doodle, today would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday. Today also marks another Beatle anniversary–one associated much more fully with Paul McCartney. 45 years ago today, “Yesterday” hit number 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart for the first week of a four-week run at the top.
Recently, Rolling Stone ranked “Yesterday” number 4 on their list of the top 10 Beatles songs of all time. Where would the song originally written as “Scrambled Eggs” show up on your best-of-the-Beatles list?
