SOTD: Yesterday

You’re probably thinking, if you didn’t already see the thumbnail image for this post that the song Yesterday would be, of course, by The Beatles. Well, yes, it is by The Beatles, Paul specifically, but no. This post is about Lil Peep…like half of these blog posts at this point.

So the song Yesterday by Peep is one I love. The track samples and uses production from the Oasis famous song Wonderwall.

[Intro]
Charlie Shuffler on the beat

[Chorus]
Change my name, shave my head
Tell my friends that I'm dead
Run away from the pain, yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today, yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today is not the same


[Verse]
Today is gonna be the day that I'm gonna come back to you
I know, I did a little blow and I never wrote back to you
My love, I wanna give it all to you
Baby, I just wanna ball with you
I couldn't see the end was comin' near the way I do
About you now


[Chorus]
Change my name, shave my head
Tell my friends that I'm dead
Run away from the pain, yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today, yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today
Yesterday is not today is not the same

It’s a short but interesting take on the Oasis classic. And if you know Peep, the lyrics shouldn’t surprise you. Part of it is about drugs, part is about wanting to die, part is about positivity and how yesterday is not today. Things can change. I love the blend of these different themes that Peep is so famous for.

Unfortunately this song was not officially part of a release from Peep, so you can’t find it on Spotify or Apple Music or whatever streaming service you’re using in 2018. Of course, this is where YouTube reigns supreme. Peep the song on YouTube here.
