As revealed in an earlier spoiler, Lennon and McCartney’s 1965 classic is officially the world’s most covered song.
Over 3,000 versions of the song have been recorded since its release, including those by the distinguished likes of Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra and Elvis. Not bad for a song which wasn’t even originally released as a UK single.
Y is also for... YouTube: The ultimate source of music videos, amateur cover versions and cats playing keyboards, with over 800 years’ worth of video.
Given that every internet user watches, on average, one YouTube video per day, it’s hard to imagine a world before the daddy of all video-sharing services.
