Parodies’ Paradise: 1965 “Yesterday”

The Beatles’ melancholy reflective ode was nominated for six Grammys in total that year, and  its album Help! was also nominated in four categories… won the Ivor Novello Award for “Outstanding Song of 1965″… ranked 13th on Rolling Stone’s 2004 list “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”… and fourth on the magazine’s list “The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs” (compiled in 2010)… inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1997… voted the best song of the 20th century in a 1999 BBC Radio 2 poll of music experts and listeners… voted the No. 1 pop song of all time by MTV and Rolling Stone magazine 1998…criticized for being mundane and mawkish… BBC (2012) reported that it remained the fourth most successful song of all-time in terms of royalties paid, having amassed a total of £19.5 million in payments (more than 2,200 cover version) one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music… after Muzak switched in the 1990s to programs based on commercial recordings, its inventory grew to include about 500 covers…  Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) asserts that it was performed over seven million times in the 20th century.

Yeah, so let’s make some merry! The Mistletones bring their odd parody skills (with glass bells) to “Holidays.” Stresses the right notes.
