Have you ever had a broken heart? Well, if you haven’t (or maybe you have, it doesn’t matter, but), let me tell you one thing or two about broken heart. Based on my experiences and everyone around me that I know, a broken heart can change your life upside down in just one night. Yesterday you could be cuddling, laughing, watching movie together, but today you can be sitting alone in your room asking why the world is so harsh and cruel. Yesterday you could be staying up all night just to text or have a phone call, but today you can be shutting down your phone just to avoid everyone. Yesterday you could be drawing a heart in your notebook, but today you can be burning all photos and papers related to that person. Hell yeah, broken heart sucks, but it happens. And one more thing you need to know about broken heart; it’s a life-changing moment. Whether it leads you to better or worse, that’s up to you.

Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay. Oh, I believe in yesterday.” –The Beatles, Yesterday

The first song review for Moments Of Our Lives part 2 is review for a classic hit titled “Yesterday”. It was performed by the widely regarded as the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, the English rock band, The Beatles. It was first released for the band’s fifth UK studio album titled “Help!”. Later on, it was released as a US single on September 13th 1965. Written by the band’s two leading men, Paul McCartney and John Lennon, “Yesterday” is a melancholy ballad about the break-up of a relationship.

A broken heart can change our lives upside down in just one night, and the lyrics of “Yesterday” speak about that. “Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay. Oh, I believe in yesterday.” A broken heart can come in a sudden. And just like that, everything is different. “Suddenly I’m not half the man I used to be, there's a shadow hanging over me. Oh, yesterday came suddenly.” A broken heart can come even without we realize it. And just like that, nothing is ever the same again. “Yesterday love was such an easy game to play, now I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday.” A broken can come in a flash. And just like that, our hearts are broken. It’s natural to have regrets for what we’ve done and said that made it all happened. And it’s natural to wish for going back to yesterday. Though, a wish is just a wish. And yesterday will never come back. “Why she had to go, I don’t know, she wouldn’t say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.”


Mi performed "Yesterday" on episode 198 of "Immortal Songs 2"

As one of the legendary international hit songs loved by Korean people, “Yesterday” had been performed once in the South Korea’s entertainment music program, “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”. It was performed by female soloist with beautiful voice, Mi, during the “English Pop Songs Koreans Love” special episode, and it was served as her debut solo performance on the show. The episode 198 was broadcasted by KBS television station on May 9th 2015, and later was aired on KBS World channel on May 30th 2015.
Paul McCartney is the only member of the band to appear on the recording of “Yesterday”. McCartney’s vocal and acoustic guitar together with a string quartet essentially made for the first solo performance of the band. It remains popular today with more than 2,200 cover versions and is one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music. With “Yesterday”, I’m reminded that simplicity is indeed beautiful for its deep meaning. Meanwhile, a broken heart is indeed beautiful if we see it through a certain perspective.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play, now I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday.” –The Beatles, Yesterday






“Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Suddenly I’m not half the man I used to be, there's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go, I don’t know, she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play, now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday”
