I agree with Lenny - DLMD is a great track and it's sung with so much conviction....

I fear this thread has gone a little off track (although interesting) - it's not a John vs Paul debate, nor is it about the Beatles break up.  It was simply about other fan's thoughts about the *potential* release of Yesterday on a McCartney "Ballads/Love Songs" album.

Lenny raised a good point earlier about a number of Beatles recordings being released on a Lennon compilation as did another peep (sorry, I'm too lazy to look back!) with a Harrison compilation.  These compilations were obvioulsy approved by the Apple gang.  This particular album however, is being stonewalled by Yoko.

I just happen to agree that although written in its entirety by Paul, it is still a Beatles recording and if there is a dissenter, it shouldn't appear on the album.

Perhaps another thread would be a good place to continue this stimulating discussion?  (I might even contribute, you never know...)

I repeat: I understand that Paul wants to put the Beatles recording of Yesterday on the album without acknowledging it as a Beatles recording. THAT is the sticking point, as far as I know.

His argument is that he did it on his own, so it's really a solo recording. The trouble with that, is it denies the input the other three would have had in the song (eg, its arrangement, where to place it on the Help LP, how it should be performed in public, its length etc etc).

The Imagine soundtrack album and Best of George Harrison albums acknowledged Beatle recordings as such.

Well then he should aknowledge it as a Beatles recording.  I don't see any problem with putting it on the album if he does that. (Besides the fact that it's not really a love song)

Yes, Mairi there shouldn't be any problem - the fact that Paul doesn't want to do that speaks volumes about his attitude, doesn't it?

And, btw, I meant to ask you when you said this before - why do you think YESTERDAY isn't a love song? I would have thought that's obvious, but maybe I'm missing something subtle here!

I kind of blame Heather for his recent attitude towards things like this. I know he's done the Yesterday thing in the past, but lately he's been acting like this a lot more. When Linda was alive she didn't treat him like a god- she would usually manage to set him straight when he was going to do something stupid (though not all the time)
Ms. Mills has just been feeding his ego and as far as I can see that is not a good thing.

Yesterday is a sad song! It's not about love- it's about someone who's been dumped!
Well. We don't even know that for sure actually. There has been some speculation as to whether it was written about his mother's death. "I said something wrong"- Could be referring to his comment about "What will we do for money (or was it food?) now?"

No, I don't really think so... she thought of him as Paul her husband, and not Beatle Paul.

Well even if it's about someone being dumped, it's still about love!

The speculation about it being about Paul's mother's death is wrong I feel. It seems like a boy/girl love song to me.

I'll disagree with you there, Real-usher-with-a-mashed-dirk. I think Paul wants women HE can dominate. He tried it on Jane Asher, and he got his marching orders.

I think some of the trouble there seems to be between Paul and Heather comes from Paul misjudging how strong Heather Mills is.

I'm getting off the subject again, but I dont feel that Heather has anything to do with this. I feel its just his lack of youth and the aging process thats getting to him. I think it also prompted him to marry Heather in the first place. He's 30 years older than she is. I'm not a big Heather fan either as I feel she's an idiot (personal choice) and she's using Paul. Paul doesnt care as he's knocking off a decent piece and he knows he isnt going to be around forever.

Heather ranks just on belt notch above Yoko in my book.

As for the whole thread subject,,,,,Yoko and Paul will have their personal p*ssing match until the day they die. If they want to act foolish and like children,,,so be it.

John & Paul did NOT write togther as much during their Beatles days as some fans would like to think which is why the Lennon/McCartney moniker is just a myth.  I think Paul is right if he wants to use his name only for his Beatles classic Yesterday since he wrote it &  played on it besides it's just Yoko looking for some publicity.
