This song by the English rock band the Beatles was written by Paul McCartney and credited to the Lennon–McCartney partnership. Its nine-week run at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 tied the all-time record in 1968 for the longest run at the top of the US charts and sold approximately eight million. The writing and recording of "Hey Jude" coincided with a period of upheaval in the Beatles. The ballad evolved from "Hey Jules", a song McCartney wrote to comfort John Lennon's son, Julian after Lennon had left his wife for the Japanese artist Yoko Ono.
"Hey Jude" was the first Beatles song to be recorded on eight-track recording equipment. At over seven minutes in length, the song was the longest single to top the British charts up to that time. McCartney has continued to perform "Hey Jude" in concert since Lennon's death in 1980, leading audiences in singing the coda.
