Lily James and Himesh Patel Yesterday Video Interview

Lily James Shared the 1 Song That Always Gets Her Dancing, and It'll 100% Have You on Your Feet

Can you imagine waking up in a world where The Beatles, Coca-Cola, and Harry Potter no longer exist?! That, my friends, is not a world I would like to live in. But that's exactly what happens in Danny Boyle's new film Yesterday, when wannabe rock star Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) wakes up after a biking accident during a worldwide power outage. While recovering postaccident, he discovers that no one in his life — including best friend and manager Ellie (Lily James) — knows who The Beatles are, so he decides to use this mysterious miracle to his benefit, performing their iconic hits around the globe and becoming the biggest star on the planet.

When we caught up with the film's stars to chat about Yesterday, we had them share a few of the songs that bring them back to important memories in their lives. From the song that reminds them of their time at school . . .

. . . to the Beatles track that reminds them of a meaningful life moment (which, for Himesh, was "Back in the U.S.S.R.").

See all the songs that changed their lives in the full video above, and be sure to catch Yesterday, in theaters everywhere Friday, June 28!
