World renowned novelist Haruki Murakami has written a new short story entitled “Yesterday.”
Here’s an excerpt from the piece: ”As far as I know, the only person ever to put Japanese lyrics to the Beatles song ‘Yesterday’ (and to do so in the distinctive Kansai dialect, no less) was a guy named Kitaru. He used to belt out his own version when he was taking a bath.” (via NPR)
