Hey Jude

26 Aug

“Hey Jude” was released in August 1968 as the first single from The Beatles’ record label Apple Records. More than seven minutes in length, “Hey Jude” was, at the time, the longest single ever to top the British charts.[3] It also spent nine weeks as number one in the United States—the longest run at the top of the American charts for a Beatles’ single, and tied the record for longest stay at number one (until the record was broken by “You Light Up My Life“). The single has sold approximately eight million copie and is frequently included on professional lists of the all-time best songs.[4][5][6] John Lennon said “Hey Jude” was “one of his [Paul’s] masterpieces.”[10]
