Yesterday is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney (credited to Lennon–McCartney), and first released on the album Help! in the United Kingdom in August 1965.
Which band, and their music, has had the most influence in my life? The answer to that question is simple – The Beatles.
On February 9th, 1964, The Beatles, with their Edwardian suits and mop top haircuts, made their first American television appearance—LIVE—on The Ed Sullivan Show.
A rather strange fact is that I actually remember the aforementioned Ed Sullivan show. I could not have been more than five years old, but I do remember watching the Beatles on a Black & White TV that had a rather insane channel switch. Little did I understand back then how much the Beatles would influence my life with their music. As a teenager and young adult I experienced a revival of some of their oldies amongst my friends and peers – the Beatles were once again ultimately cool.
I never grow tired of listening to the Beatles, especially their early music, and possess almost their entire discography in electronic form. Roon has made that entire Beatles catalogue that much more enjoyable 🙂
