On Minimation, we comb through the archives of legendary New York radio station WNEW-FM and animate interviews with legendary rock artists. This installment is taken from a 1984 interview with Paul McCartney, who discusses the origins of one of his biggest hits, the Beatles‘ “Yesterday.” This Minimation was created for by John Morena.

Most Beatles fans have heard Paul McCartney talk about how the original lyrics to “Yesterday” were “Scrambled eggs/oh baby how I love your legs!” But they’ve never seen it rendered quite like this.

In 1984, at the time of this interview, Paul was promoting his Give My Regards To Broad Street film and soundtrack album, which saw him re-recording several Beatles classics, including “Here, There and Everywhere,” “The Long and Winding Road” and “Yesterday.”

In the interview, he tells Muni, “When something’s just so successful… people often don’t want to do the big one.”

At that time, McCartney was in the midst of a decade long hiatus from the road, and even when he did tour, he leaned more heavily on his solo catalog – it should be noted however, that he did play “Yesterday,” which was included on his classic 1976 live record Wings Over America.
