GORGEOUS: Hey Jude

Isn't he absolutely gorgeous and obviously has a talent for music!
Like it how he gets all angry when he says, 'Better, better, better ahhhh'



While we are metioning the song 'Hey Jude' by the Beatles - thought I would share some background information on the song and put it below. Paul McCartney wrote the song in 1968 to comfort John Lennon's son Julian during his parents' divorce, as he had had an affair with Yoko Ono. More than seven minutes in length, "Hey Jude" was, at the time, the longest single ever to top the British charts. Cynthia Lennon recalled, "I was truly surprised when, one afternoon, Paul arrived on his own. I was touched by his obvious concern for our welfare.... On the journey down he composed 'Hey Jude' in the car. I will never forget Paul's gesture of care and concern in coming to see us."
The song's original title was "Hey Jules", and it was intended to comfort Julian Lennon from the stress of his parents' divorce. McCartney said, "I started with the idea 'Hey Jules', which was Julian, don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better. Hey, try and deal with this terrible thing. I knew it was not going to be easy for him. I always feel sorry for kids in divorces ... I had the idea [for the song] by the time I got there. I changed it to 'Jude' because I thought that sounded a bit better.
