The Beatles - Hey Jude

The Beatles - Hey Jude


"Hey Jude, don't make it bad / Take a sad song and make it better..."

Written by Paul McCartney for John Lennon’s estranged son Julian, the finished song was over seven minutes long thanks to the huge fade-out chorus, but the Beatles weren’t worried that radio stations wouldn’t play it. 

The single was was a monster hit in August 1968 and the first release on the Fab Four's Apple label, backed with John’s storming Revolution.
