"'''Hey Jude'''" ([[1800|1868]]) was a well-known [[English]] ballad, stolen and performed by [[the Beatles]]. It is the first [[radio]] song to exceed six minutes by 70 hours and one of many singles Paul McCartney recorded while [[Paul is dead|dead]].

After the divorce of John and Cynthia Lennon, Paul wanted to reconsole their son, Julian, by offering him the song, but began making money from the single instead. In 1996, Julian Lennon bought the recording notes to this song at an auction for £25,000.

[[John Lennon]] stated that the song came about when Paul McCartney sought to write the shortest song in history. He succeeded with the song "Na", the length of which reportedly totaled less than one second, consisting of the sole lyric "Na".<ref>This record was later defeated by [[John Cage]]</ref> However, the work was lost when [[Yoko Ono]] recorded over the original tape for one of her [[shit music|"avant garde"]] pieces and combined it with the popular ballad "Hey Jude".
   
'''Hey Jude''' ([[1800#1868|1868]]) is a [[single]] released by [[the Beatles]]. It is the first [[radio]] song to exceed six minutes by 70 hours. Not much else is known save what has been revealed in interviews with Beatles both [[Ringo Starr|surviving]] and [[Paul McCartney|dead]]. ([[George Harrison]] could not be reached for comment.) It is the '''The Best Beatles Song'''

Paul recorded it the next day and, forgetting how the song was supposed to end, went around in circles. The recording only ended when producer [[George Martin]] ran out of tape and refused to keep on stealing it from the [[Rolling Stones]].
   
It has been speculated that a guy went to Walmart and did: [[Jessica Simpson]] because shes hot, [[William Shatner]], [[Morning Musume]], [[Boy George]], [[Jay-Z]], and [[Fall Out Boy]]. Thankfully, [[Paul McCartney]] destroyed the [[Earth]] before this could happen.
+
Finally, Paul engaged an orchestra, for (as he claimed at the beginning) playing a few lines of the song, whilst in reality, he wanted them to clap their hands and sing "Na na na na naaa".

In a recent interview, [[Ringo Starr]] revealed that the song began when Paul McCartney sought to write the longest song in [[history]]. He succeeded. [[Nobody]] noticed, however, that he cheated and repeated "Na na na na" over and over again. To this day, thanks to the repetition's inducement of [[hypnosis]], '''not one listener''' has noticed this. <strike>Kinda makes you wonder how we</strike> No questions, thank you.
 
   
Contradicting this, however, [[John Lennon]] stated that the song came about when Paul McCartney sought to write the shortest song in history. He succeeded with the song "Na", whose length reportedly totaled less than one second, consisting of the sole lyric "Na." (This record was later defeated by [[John Cage]].) However, the work was lost when [[Yoko Ono]] recorded over the original [[tape]] for one of her [[shit music|"avant garde"]] pieces.

A few days later, Paul was too [[stoned|high]] to remember his original goal of writing the shortest song ever. He recorded "Hey Jude" the next day, forgetting how the song was supposed to end, and went around in circles, still under the influence of the cannabis. The recording only ended after when producer [[George Martin]] ran out of tape and stopped stealing it from the [[Rolling Stones]].

A popular sequel to Hey Jude was written by [[Beck]]. The song ([[E-pro]]) makes an honest attempt at tackling Hey Jude's incredible length, but not quite in the same style. E-pro is a relatively more lyrical song; however, it is not without its "nas". Beck stated that he "...wanted to capture the beauty of the nas, but not sound like a total rip-off". This is easy to hear, as Beck has rearranged the nas:

Heyjude

Day 2 of the first Hey Jude performance. Notice how John is dressed like the Six Flags man.

"Hey Jude" (1868) was a well-known English ballad, stolen and performed by the Beatles. It is the first radio song to exceed six minutes by 70 hours and one of many singles Paul McCartney recorded while dead.

After the divorce of John and Cynthia Lennon, Paul wanted to reconsole their son, Julian, by offering him the song, but began making money from the single instead. In 1996, Julian Lennon bought the recording notes to this song at an auction for £25,000.

Bouncywikilogo7
For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Hey Jude.
Jude Law

Jude Law, to whom the song fortunately does not refer, but whose name unfortunately refers to the song.

John Lennon stated that the song came about when Paul McCartney sought to write the shortest song in history. He succeeded with the song "Na", the length of which reportedly totaled less than one second, consisting of the sole lyric "Na".[1] However, the work was lost when Yoko Ono recorded over the original tape for one of her "avant garde" pieces and combined it with the popular ballad "Hey Jude".

Paul recorded it the next day and, forgetting how the song was supposed to end, went around in circles. The recording only ended when producer George Martin ran out of tape and refused to keep on stealing it from the Rolling Stones.

Finally, Paul engaged an orchestra, for (as he claimed at the beginning) playing a few lines of the song, whilst in reality, he wanted them to clap their hands and sing "Na na na na naaa".

Hey Jude lyrics

The lyrics of the song have been characterized as very clever, well-written and thought-provoking by the critics.

Hey Jude
Don't make it worse
You have found her
Now go and do something
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you begin:
"Oh, fucking hell!"
...To make it better / better / better / better / better / BETTER / BETTER / BETTER… AAAAAAAAA!
So let it out and let it in
Come on! Begin!
You're waiting for someone to do it with

Hey Jewd? How does that one go again??

The Beatles Archives has released several early drafts of the alternate lyrics of "Hey Jude".

Hey, Jude!
Don't fake a bat
Take a sad song
And make some money
For well you know that you're a tool
When wiping drool
And making your chin a little drier
Fixing a hole

At one point, Paul tried a different approach with the original "Hey Jewd".

Hey Jewd
Don't be afraid
You have no foreskin
And it won't be better
Remember to leave your dradle on the table
It'll be a bagel
Tomorrow

The first promotional attempt failed, when Paul McCartney painted the title of the song on one of the Apple Boutique's windows. When he saw the fury of the crowd, he replaced it with " Hey Jude"[3] but the window still got destroyed. McCartney later explained that the song was not at all antisemitic and it was a complete coincidence that "Jude" signified "Jew" in German.

edit Backmasking

Playing "Hey Jude" backwards yields you a potentially Satanic message:

According to Paul McCartney, this is gibberish.

edit Sequel

A popular sequel to "Hey Jude" ("E-pro"[4]) was written by Beck. The song makes an honest attempt at tackling Hey Jude's incredible length, but not quite in the same style. Beck also "wanted to capture the beauty of the Nas, but not sound like a total rip-off".
