When the Beatles broke through with their first hit, “Yesterday,” they were at the peak of their career.
The song, a cover of “A Hard Day’s Night,” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the fastest-selling single of the Beatles’ career.
But after the song, the band struggled for years to regain its footing.
“The Beatles were really a very successful band,” says music historian David McBride.
“And they were very popular in the States, but they were really struggling to gain traction.
It wasn’t until the ’70s, with the release of their last album, that they really took off.”
The Beatles had their first major hit with “Yesterday” in 1965.
But the album had been delayed and they were unable to record the song until 1965, when it was released.
“So in ’65, the Beatles were having trouble making their third album,” McBride says.
“The record company was in the middle of a contract dispute with the studio.
And they were looking for ways to recoup money from them.
So they were trying to get out of that contract, but it was still a big problem.”
The record label, Universal Music, refused to work with the Beatles, and they ultimately decided to go their own way.
The band was still signed to Universal, and when they recorded their third record, “Hey Jude,” in 1966, they did so on their own.
The record label demanded that the song be written in Latin and that they take a Latin album, which they did.
But the song was a hit in the U.S. And the song still had a lot of fans.
So, the next year, the record company changed its tune.
It wanted the song to be in English and Spanish.
The record labels would never agree to a record in English.
“So they changed the contract,” McBrides says.
“And they didn’t want to pay them the money, so they sued them and won,” Mcbrides says, “and the record companies sued them again, and again.
The next year they finally got it, and it went to No. 1 on the charts.”
After the album was released, the song became a cultural touchstone.
“They were able to become the song of their generation,” McWilliams says.
The song has become an anthem for a generation.
The Beatles had the power to create an anthem that captured the zeitgeist of the day.
It is a song of hope and optimism.
It has become part of the national mythology.
But now, it is at the heart of a new debate about whether or not to revive the song.
The new version has a new beat, and new lyrics.
But in the United States, it has a completely different feel to it.
It’s not quite the Beatles version of the song it is in Latin.
The lyrics have changed, too.
“I don’t think we should ever play it again,” McBryses says.
And McWilliams agrees.
“If we are playing it again, I don’t see it being sung again.
The song is a national icon,” McWilliams says.
It became a global phenomenon.
But, according to McWilliams, the lyrics have also been a source of controversy.
“They were a very, very controversial song,” he says.
And, as McWilliams points out, it took two decades for the song’s original lyrics to come out.
The “Hey You” controversy began in 1967, when the pop group the Rolling Stones took the song and changed it to include the word “Hey.”
It also changed the lyrics, and the word ‘hey’ was replaced by ‘lose it,’ which is Latin for “let go.”
The lyrics also changed to include a line about “a broken heart,” but McWilliams has a different take on that.
“When you say ‘break up,’ you mean a broken heart, and a broken head,” McWilliams says, adding that he does not agree with “hey you.”
“Hey You is a very catchy song, and you can’t really change it to be different,” McBrien says.
But he thinks the song has a place in the pop culture.
“Yeah, that song is still very relevant today,” he said.
“But it is definitely not as relevant today as it was in 1967.”
The new lyrics are more inclusive of the gay community, but McBride is concerned that the new lyrics may be more offensive to many listeners.
“It seems to me that they have gone a bit too far in making the song gay, and that’s really offensive,” McBeirces says.
McBride says he hopes the song is returned to its original form.
“I hope that they will be able to get the song back out in the world, because it is a great song and a very popular song, that’s all,”
