Hey Jude – 1968
Released in the summer of 1968, Hey Jude went on to become a worldwide smash for the Beatles and is often cited among the bands top songs by critics, going on to sell over 10 million copies.
The song was written by Paul McCartney for John Lennon’s song to help comfort him through his parents’ divorce. The song evolved from ‘Hey Jules’ to ‘Hey Jude’ and would now seem a bit weird any other way.
A failed marketing campaign saw the Apple Boutique whitewash ‘Hey Jude’ across the windows. This was mistaken for anti-semitic graffiti with the German word for Jew being Jude. This drew several complaints and the windows were even smashed.
At over 7 minutes long it was the longest Beatles single and one of the first ‘long’ songs to get a serious amount of radio airplay.
It was also the first release on the Beatles own record label, Apple Records earning them a lot more than they previously would have got.
The song has been covered a number of times even at Woodstock by the magnificent Richie Havens who opened the event.
