DT Lyrics:

Subject: Mikey Clarke, UK journalist
From: keberoxu
Date: 03 Jul 19 - 05:35 PM

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.

Here's the link.

Have you all heard, though,
the SPOILER -- won't put it here --
about an actor
who comes on at the very end
playing a SURPRISE! character?

I believe the Beatles should have got into their own English folk music (there was a revival at the time), instead of putting their skills into American pop.

There was another one way back, also posted on this forum, from where I harvested it: sing it with lots of pauses

Yesterday                                                        (parody)

Yesterday.......seemed like it,
But as today is......Saturday
It must have been ........Friday.......yesterday.

Suddenly...there's no entry in my di..ary
For the Thursday or the ....Fri-i-day
This Saturday came suddenly.

Where two days could go, I don't know, I couldn't say,
I remember............bugger-all since yesterday.......
Which seemed like..............
Wednesday........still there's nothing else to say,
At least I don't think so anyway.......
Today was tomorrow................yesterday

I enjoyed this film, and whilst it’s very good overall, it’s not nearly as brilliant as all the hype suggests (why do they do that, because you just end up disappointed?) Essentially it’s a one joke premise that I would have thought they could have got more laughs out of, but instead it descends into the well-worn rom-com formula (will they, won’t they?) Or maybe it’s just me...

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Then I went & joined the IRA
Oh I believe in yesterday
Suddenly I'm not half the man I used to be
Since they chopped me off at the knee...

Opinions that have leaked out since:

Yoko Ono was unhappy about SPOILER.

"... she didn't want people to see SPOILER growing old."

But Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were thumbs-up,
both sending messages of approval to
director Danny Boyle.
