"Yesterday" is a melancholy acoustic guitar ballad about a break-up. Although credited to "Lennon/McCartney", the song was written entirely by McCartney. The rest of the band vetoed the release of the song as a single in the UK, but it was issued as a single there in 1976.
Yesterday was the first recording by The Beatles that relied upon a performance by a single member of the band, Paul McCartney. He was accompanied by a string quartet.
In 2002 McCartney asked Yoko Ono if she would allow reversing the credit on the song to read "McCartney/Lennon". After all, Paul was the sole composer of this particular Beatles song. Ono refused.
