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.


Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
