Hey Jude Lyrics
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...
Sooo many of those were the exact same thing except worded differently, I liked the one with the whole talent lyrics muse thing that was interesting must have taken some thought although I agree with the whole original Jules story... But why go into that everyone else has a million times over in every way possible

I saw an interview with Paul and he said he wrote it for Julian Lennon. He said he was playing the song for John while he was working on it and when he got to the line "the movement you need is on your shoulder," he told John "I'm going to change that line, it doesn't make any sense, it's just words that go with the melody." John replied "no, that's a great line leave it in there" which goes back to the point that John loved lyrics that made no sense but sounded great in a song. It also shows that even in the tough times they still respected each others talents.
Stop with the drug refrences. There isn't any!

Ok, as we've covered it was written for Julian by Paul on his way to visit Julian and Cynthia after the divorce. It was originaly titled Hey Jules, but was changed. After the divorce, John tried to cut out Cynthia, and therefore Julian out of his life and the life of the Beatles (prolly to help with the pain). He told the beatles not to see her, but Paul did, which later caused a bit of a fight. The her is both a reference to Yoko, for Julian to try and embrace her, and to Cynthia for Julian not to blame her for the divorce, as he did, like most children of such a young age.

Although the first person is right, there is more. The song was supposed to be "Hey Jules", which more applies to Lennon's son, Julian. Paul McCartney, however, just didn't think it sounded right. For this reason, McCartney changed it to Jude.

I think everyone should get over the whole heroin thing!!
Hey jude is a clasic song about John Lennon's son Julian. The song was written to help him get over the divoice of his parents. The her could be his mum because jude could think it was is mums fault or it could be Yoko.

Ok, first off the last poster wasn't Paul. Second this song is about Lennon's son Julian (written by Paul). Third, THIS SONG HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HERION. I'm sick and tired of hearing people ruin good songs like this and saying "oh man that's about drugs" sorry its not. The Beatles wrote many songs about drugs, for instance "Got to get you into my life" is an Ode to weed, but "Hey Jude" is a touching song that has no connection to drugs at all PERIOD. Enjoy!

This song was written for Julian Lennon, when John was divorcing Cynthia. The song, that was previously named "Hey Julian", had its name changed, and John used to joke around that Paul had written it for him instead of his son.

The song was written for Julian Lennon during John and Cynthia's divorce. Paul wrote it while he was driving up to the Lennon's. He worked out the lyrics and melody in the car and the song was practicaly finished by the time he got there. The words were later changed from Jules to Jude.

Amen to Jenna220. I love John Lennon so much, but I, like many other people forget that he was just a regular guy and wasn't perfect.

Someone said: The "her" he is refferring to is Yoko Ono who John left wife no. 1 for. Plain and simple.
Well, isn't it a kind of perversion to ask one's friend's son to accept into a heart a father's new wife, after the father divorced the son's mother? And even ask it with so many repetitions? Isn't it too strange to be the explanation?

The first person is right it is Paul McCartney's nickname for Julian Lennon and he wrote this during Lennon's divorce with his first wife

Paul McCartney wrote it for Julian Lennon when John and his first wife were getting divorced. The "her" he is refferring to is Yoko Ono who John left wife no. 1 for. Plain and simple.

The first one is right. It was written for Julian.

It's about one of the band members's sons. The band member and his wife were going through a rough divorce and he's telling his son to not worry and stay strong.
