Thread Name: Lyr Add: Parody of 'Yesterday'
Subject: Mikey Clarke, UK journalist
Mikey Clarke, a journalist from the UK, reviewed the
recently released film Yesterday
by writing a parody lyric for the Beatles tune.
I think it's charming.

Is the film that I'll review today;
And I've got a lot I want to say,
So, I thought, I'd do it this way.

Trust in me,
This is quite the triumph musically,
The story justifies the ticket fee.
Yes, Yesterday . . . won over me.

It ... is ... set in a world,
Where the Beatles don't exist.
Just ... one ... guy remembers their songs:
That's the gist ... of Yesterday.

Himesh Patel,
Quite the actor and singer as well;
He's the guy from EastEnders . . . you couldn't tell.
The perfect lead, in Yesterday.

Now ... I ... have to say what is wrong:
It's a tad too long.
There's nothing ground-breaking here,
But I'll still cheer, for Yesterday.   

Curtis writing us more comedy.
Yeah, you'll walk away so merrily,
Once you have seen . . . Yesterday.

Again, the words are by one Mikey Clarke,
"colleague" of Jeremy Ransome
who writes for the
Spalding syndicate at Iliffe Media.
