Paul McCartney on "Eleanor Rigby" vs. "Yesterday"

"The only similar thing between 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Yesterday' is that we used strings on both recordings. Apart from that similarity there is nothing else remotely the same to me. I think they're completely different kinds of tunes. I also think that I sang 'Yesterday' a lot better than 'Eleanor Rigby.' It sounds terrible. Listen to it. It's pretty bad."
