It was novel to us Baby Boomers when it came out in 1968. The long coda was new and fun. (Paul's ad libs during that long ending helped make that long coda interesting to many of us Beatle fans.) Hearing "Hey Jude" a million times since then is a different story.

Funny that there were a few songs recorded that mid-1968 that had those long codas--including Donovan's "Atlantis" and the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil."

"Hey Jude" was my favorite Beatles album. Odd because it wasn't really an album, just a collection of singles that were never on an album. They did some crazy stuff back then in relation to albums, singles, and distribution. Abbey Road, Hey Jude, and Let It Be were all released within less than 8 months total time. Despite being an English band, if you lived there, you had to import that album because it wasn't distributed in England when it was originally released.

One had to be in a certain state of mind to appreciate it.

Off top of my head, #9 is the least favorite of mine. Can't get into any state with that song other than just mindlessly repeating number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine, number nine, .....

And don't forget the Yellow Submarine soundtrack, which was also released during that window: in January 1969. Lots of Beatles' music (and video) came out during that time to keep all us fans busy and happy.

BTW: if you're tired of hearing "Hey Jude" listen to the version done in a minor scale:

Just about anything written by John Lennon (one exception, Grow Old Along With Me). My brother can't understand how I am not a Beatles fan, "they started it all". Well, I prefer Paul's melodies and John probably wrote 1/2 of the songs, so it's easier to say I don't like the Beatles. I do like Paul McCartney music...including that written while he was a Beatle, even though the credits are to both him and John...

Now, I love most of the British Invasion music so I guess I am just weird.

I don't know if you spelled it correctly, but it is definitely close enough to know who you are talking about. To each his own, but I agree with you 100%!

I think he was Norah Jones' dad, which makes him A-OK in my book.

I am the youngest of three and I remember standing around in the family room pretending we were The Beatles. We argued about who was who. I was John - guess that never left!
