Speedy's rendition of a Nimal Mendis classic, "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" which was the first he wrote for his wife Ranjani Mendis who passed away on October 18th 2010. According to Speedy, Augustus Vinyagaratnam had translated the song into Sinhala - Nim Him Sewva. The English version sung by Desmond De Silva and the Sinhala version sung by Pandit Amaradeva. Both versions were featured in the film "Seetha Devi" by the late Manik Sandrasagra, acknowledging Nimal's original composition.

    I thought your song has gone viral and re-appeared after circling the world a few times!! It is a great pleasure to listen to a wonderful rendition of a brilliant song. By the way yesterday today and tomorrow was a 1963 comedy film with Sophia Loren.
