help#9 – The Beatles – “Yesterday” – (1965)

“Yesterday” is widely considered one of the best Beatles’ songs and it was famously titled “Scrambled Eggs” as a placeholder before more serious lyrics could be written. It was a #1 and was later used in the brilliant film Once Upon a Time in America. It’s weird – everyone loves the Beatles or whatever, but their music is so rarely used in film (other than Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, I guess).
