Hey Jude – The Beatles

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Can you believe that Hey Jude was released in 1968!  That's almost 50 years ago! McCartney wrote the lyrics to comfort Julian Lennon – it might have started out that way but became a sort of anthem for many people.

This was the first song released by them under the Apple label.  There was a 40 piece orchestra playing on the recording.

This YouTube clip is over 8 minutes long and the song doesn't start for a few seconds – so be warned if you click through.
