Challenge: A song that makes you cry.

There isn’t a current one or one I can think of, so I dug into my memory box to find one that used to guarantee tears.

I post this version because it’s the original, it reminds me of my Mother. She loved The Beatles, more so, she loved Paul. I have her Beatles collectors cards in a box, all of them Paul. I always liked this song, after she died, and I heard it again, I couldn’t help but cry. This continued for a while, now, I’m good – the song plays, I sing, I smile.

Yesterday – The Beatles

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.

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.

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.
