Hey Jude is a song by Paul McCartney of The Beatles, credited Lennon/McCartney. After 1966, when John Lennon said that they where more popular than Jesus, The Beatles made several struggling attempts, like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road, however the purpose of Hey Jude was to actually comfort Julian Lennon (aka "Jules") of his parents' divorce (John and Cynthia Lennon), but the amazing thing is they did both, they made it go number one on the Billboard hits again and they also comforted Jules.
CompositionEditThe song was written by Paul McCartney, in an attempt to soothe Julian Lennon, John Lennon's son, after his father and mother, John's first wife Cynthia, got a divorce, the original name of the song was "Hey Jules". McCartney thought it up in his car while driving to Lennon's house to babysit his son Julian. "Revolution" was released as its B-side. It is also said that John misunderstood the song and thought that it was Paul telling John that he supported his relationship with Yoko.
