Sounds For Sunday
A handful of cover versions today of a song that has always irritated me in it’s original form. Yesterday by The Beatles. I don’t know why it irritates me so, it always has. Even as a child I found it to be cheesy. The fact that we sometimes sang it in school assembly probably didn’t help.
That’s a little strange looking back: but there were a few teachers that were definite hippies. One of my teachers had a boyfriend who would sometimes come to the school in his Afghan coat and play songs on his guitar. They drove a VW minibus covered in flower transfers. This was when I was about six or seven. We thought they were great.
Anyway here’s three versions that make me listen to this song with new ears.
The last one is probably my favourite here. And Rosey Grier’s story is pretty amazing.
I have Funky16Corners blog to thank for introducing me to this one! Lovely stuff!
