Beatle Fact Friday!

It's Friday and you know what that means -- well, you don't yet but now you will -- It's Beatle Fact Friday!!

Every friday we will be posting a new fact about the Beatles whether it be song meanings or just little known facts about the fab four.

Here it 'tis:

Paul McCartney composed the melody of "Yesterday" one evening in his room around the time when he was with Jane Asher.  During the entire filming of "Help" he worked on fine tuning the song. Initially the lyrics went ""Scrambled Eggs, Oh my baby how I love your legs." Obviously, this was not acceptable to the other band mates. After debating whether or not the melody was already a song published by someone else,  he changed the lyrics to "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away." The song was officially released in the summer of 1965.
