YesterdayLLL
Album: Glee Sings the Beatles
Released: September 24, 2013
By: The Beatles
Sung by: Rachel Berry
Place: Unnamed New York Theatre, Central Park, New York City, and Bushwick Apartment
Episode: Love, Love, Love

Yesterday by The Beatles is featured in Love, Love, Love, the first episode of Season Five. It is sung by Rachel.

After Rachel's Funny Girl callback reading, she sits in a room in the theatre and listens to the directors as they debate whether or not her inexperience will hinder her in the role of Fanny Brice. Rachel, begins to sing Yesterday, as she sings, she walks across the theatre stage, looking across the audience seats, then proceeds to stroll around New York City (Central Park and Sardi's). Her facial expressions and the lyrical content of the song describes how she really feels, concerned about what may come of her career.

When Rachel stands at the Central Park Bridge, she pulls out her phone, showing a picture of New Direction's first Sectionals win, and reminisces. Finishing the performance at the Bushwick Apartment, Rachel sits in front of a mirror, on her bed, staring back at her reflection. 

Lyrics

Rachel:
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 girl I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why he had to go I don't know he wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Hey-Ye-Ye-Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why he had to go I don't know he wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Hey-Ye-Oh-Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Uh uh uh uh uh uh

Trivia

  • The lyrics were changed from "I'm not half the man I used to be" and "why she had to go, I don't know she woudn't say" to "I'm not half the girl I used to be" and "why he had to go, I don't know he wouldn't say."
  • As Rachel walks through New York, she walks through places she has been before in the show. For instance, she walks by the fountain she was at when she found out Kurt had moved to NYC and she walks through the place where the New Directions sang I Love New York/New York, New York in Season Two. She also went to a few places where she and Finn had been to on their date in New York, like Sardi's and the Central Park Bridge.
