“I heard it had been recorded 3000 times or something” — Paul McCartney, The Beatles

Some songs transcend the very nature of pop music. The term, now more often fired out of critical cannons with the sincere intent of causing artistic damage, is usually centred on the idea that the music in question is like an explosive charge. A boom of collective adoration that is, as quickly, subdued and forgotten. But, if there is one band and one song that has firmly bucked the pop music trend, it is The Beatles and their seminal hit ‘Yesterday’.

The track, written by McCartney and credited to the Lennon–McCartney writing partnership, was first released as part of the album Help! and, according to folklore, McCartney composed the entire melody in a dream at the home of his then-girlfriend Jane Asher. The song ranks among one of Macca’s best and is also heavily praised from across the critical world. But despite its huge popularity, it’s not his favourite.

In a previous interview, Sir Paul revealed when talking about the one song Lennon had always complimented him on, ‘Here, There and Everywhere’. “Well, it’s difficult to choose the favourite. It (‘Here, There and Everywhere’) is one of my favourites. You look at your songs and kinda look to see which of the ones you think are maybe the best constructed and stuff,” says McCartney. “I think ‘Yesterday’—if it wasn’t so successful—might be my favourite.”
