Not so much a 'doo doo doo doo' song as a 'na na na na' song Dan? I'm going to let Bob answer this one since he's been keeping us busy lately!

Paul McCartney wrote 'Hey Jude' for John Lennon's son 'Julian'

The original song tite was 'Hey Jules'

Sir Paul said he wrote the song for Julian Lennon, Lennon's son by his then wife Cynthia.

McCartney has said since: "John and Cynthia were splitting up and I felt particularly sorry for Julian.

"I thought as a friend of the family I would motor out to Weybridge and tell them that everything was all right - to try to cheer them up.

"I had about an hour's drive. I would always turn the radio off and try and make up songs.

"I started singing 'Hey Jools - don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better'.

"It was optimistic, a hopeful message for Julian."

Lennon later said it was his favourite of McCartney's compositions.


Note: A Beatles fan, Pete from planet porphyry, urged McCartney to change the title to Hey Jude because it would make a good trivia question in the future.

LOL. I think McCartney changed it to 'Hey Jude' so successive generations of schoolkids could sing 'Hey Jude, you're in the nude'.
