"Hey Jude" by the Beatles
was one of the most successful smashes of the legendary British band. The ballad with a length more than seven minutes, evolved from 'Hey Jules', a song McCartney wrote to comfort John Lennon's son, Julian, during its parents' divorce. It held the top position of the Global Chart for sensational 18 weeks and was, of course, far and away the biggest hit of the year 1968 with a total of 13,972,000 points.
