Yesterday (alt.)

yestrdyYesterday
All our troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks like Covid’s here to stay
So, time to watch Yesterday

Suddenly
Danny’s half the man he used to be
There’s no story that I can see
Oh, Yesterday its so lazy

Where the plot has gone, I don’t know, I couldn’t say
But there lots of songs, not much else, in Yesterday

Yesterday
Actors have such easy parts to play
Now I need a place to hide away
‘cuz Ed Sheeran’s in Yesterday

Where the plot has gone, I don’t know, I couldn’t say
But there lots of songs, not much else, in Yesterday

Yesterday
Such costly Royalties to pay
No money left for the screenplay
But, people love Yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

    Not sure if there were any royalties to pay? The publishing for the Beatles’ back catalogue is now in the public domain, so the only fees to pay are performance fees if you play their actual recordings. Which I guess is the reason this film exists, otherwise yeah – it’s be more expensive than Avatar.

    1. I don’t know the ins and outs of what they’d have to pay, but Boyle has said it was a “significant” amount of the budget and estimates seem to range from $5-10 million.
