This week we got a great song to review Yesterdays from Use You Illusion II. Hope you enjoy!

“Yesterdays” is the third track on the Guns N’ Roses album Use Your Illusion II. It was written by Axl Rose, West Arkeen, Del James and Billy McCloud. This song is featured in the 2004 compilation Greatest Hits, and the Vegas version below was included on the album Live Era ’87–’93. The song reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart and peaked at No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The official music video for the song was directed by Andy Morahan. Filmed in black and white, the first version featured the band playing in an empty warehouse. The second version mixes clips of the band playing in the warehouse and photographs of band members during the Use Your Illusion Tour, as well as former members Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler, who had left the group by then. It is included on their Welcome to the Videos DVD.

Lyrics:

Yesterday there was so many things I was never told
Now that I’m startin’ to learn I feel I’m growing old

‘Cause yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
Time just fades the pages in my book of memories

Prayers in my pocket
And no hand in destiny
I’ll keep on movin’ along
With no time to plant my feet

‘Cause yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
Some things could be better
If we’d all just let them be

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Got nothin’ for me

Yesterday there was so many things I was never shown
Suddenly this time I found I’m on the streets and I’m all alone

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Old pictures that I’ll always see
I ain’t got time to reminisce old novelties

Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday’s got nothin’ for me
Yesterday

Yesterday
