Yesterday

Paul McCartney's iconic song "Yesterday", is now inspiration for a movie.


The Movie 'Yesterday' is due out in theatres on June 28th. Looks like it will be a fun movie, anything with a lot of Beatles songs has to be good. Initial reviews aren't very great but I recall Bohemian Rhapsody was in the same spot, seems it did very well at the box office and at awards shows. Though in this case 'Yesterday' is not autobiographical it is fiction, still one has to think a Beatles Soundtrack is going to do as well or better. At the very least it will remind us of how great The Beatles actually were and that songs still hold up today. The plot of the movie is based on a struggling musician being the only one who remembers 'The Beatles' existed 'yesterday' as 'today' they are absent from everyone's memory. It's a brilliant premise and poses the question, what if these songs did just come out now, how popular would they be? If nothing…
