Paul McCartney's Top 10 Dream

Did you know that Paul McCartney created one of the world's most famous songs, "Yesterday," in a dream? It's true! He awoke with the melody in his head, wrote it out immediately, and played it for various people, certain that he must have heard it somewhere before, that it was someone else's song. 

But no matter who he played the song for, they told him they had never heard it before. He wrote out some lyrics, (originally "Scrambled eggs, oh my baby how I love your legs") recorded it, and now the song is world-famous!

How's that for a good dream!?
