I can't remember very much, so hope to find common sense, possibly aided by visual imagery.
If an aircraft is stopped on the right of the taxiway in front of you, then overtaking on the right would probably put you onto the possibly soft grass, so to stay on the hard surface you would overtake on the left.
In the air we should pass to the right. If we overtook on the left we might run into someone coming the other other way avoiding the a/c just in front of us. It therefore makes sense to overtake on the right.
[Edit - Should have said this was how I remembered the 'old' rules. If you can now go either side on the ground that just makes life easier.]
