Classic Rock Song of the Day: "Hey Jude"

I obviously have a very strong connection and love for this song and sang it every night to help my son fall asleep.  IMO one of the Beatles' best, it reached the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard charts this week in 1968 where it would remain for 9 weeks becoming their longest charting #1 single in the U.S. & selling over 8 million copies world wide.

It was written by Paul McCartney for John's son Julian and originally titled "Hey Jules" the B-side was another Beatles great, "Revolution"
