Yesterdaywas released by the Beatles on their 1965 album, Help!  It features a stringquartet backing to McCartney’s vocals and acoustic guitar – no other Beatlesappear on the track. The song is a melancholic ballad in which the singerlaments for yesterday, when he and his love were together, before she leftbecause of something he said.

It was soradically different from anything the band had released before the Beatlesinitially decided against issuing it as a single.  When, in 1976, it was finally issued itreached no. 8 in the UK charts.  Sincethen it has become one of the most popular (and covered) songs in popular musichistory.
