51 years ago: The Beatles take a sad song and make it better 🎶🎶

Today in 1968: The "Hey Jude" single is released by the Beatles (Billboard Song of the Year 1968, Billboard 10th biggest song of all time 2013).

And anytime you feel the pain
Hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na
