10 Awesome, Awful & Odd "Hey Jude" Covers

This week in 1968, The Beatles inaugurated their Apple Records label in a most auspicious fashion, releasing "Hey Jude" as a 45. The B-side was "Revolution." Written by Paul McCartney and employing a 36-piece orchestra, "Jude" did nothing to dispel the perception that Paul was the "soft" Beatle and John Lennon the "rock" Beatle. No one - least of all the Apple accountants - seemed to mind, as the song sold 5 million copies by the end of that year, and is now believed to be the group's biggest earner if not their biggest seller.
