Hey Jude (1968) – The Beatles

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

The Beatles(1968) – Hey Jude

每位都有聽過的歌,相當知名的一首歌—Hey Jude。由著名英國樂隊The Beatles錄製在1968年以單曲推出,歌曲唱達7分鐘,屬於流行搖滾(Pop Rock),填詞作曲由John Lennon及Paul McCartney(Lennon–McCartney)合作。在當時英美音樂排行榜榜首時間停留最長的歌曲之一,在美國榜首停留9個星期。Hey Jude是The Beatles眾多冠軍歌曲停留最長時間的一首歌,被滾石列入500首史上最偉大歌曲,更被Billboard雜誌列入10大歌曲之一,受各大媒體好評不斷。

歌曲原名為”Hey Jules”,後來因Hey Jude比較順口而作為歌名。Hey Jude的由來是因為Paul McCartney用來安撫John Lennon的兒子—Julian Lennon,在John Lennon 與他第一任妻子Cynthia Lennon離婚的時候所寫的,而後來John Lennon選擇與小野洋子(Yoko Ono)。歌詞以正面態度去包裝一件傷心的事—離婚,鼓勵兒子Julian Lennon勇於追尋愛。

Hey Jude是The Beatles第一首以多軌錄音的歌曲,由不同音樂樂器演奏,歌曲一開始由Paul McCartney人聲及鋼琴帶領,之後不同樂器陸續加入,當中有大小提琴,喇叭及笛等樂器。而尾段,則哼出na—na—na超過4分鐘,在表演中引導觀眾唱這一段。有趣的地方是,The Beatles在Trident Studios錄音室錄音時,樂隊的助理及朋友Mal Evans堅持帶來一卡車的大麻植物(Marijuana plants),希望樂隊可以得心應手,令錄製過程順風順水(in the studio to make the place “soft“)。

大家終於搞清楚Hey Jude是甚麼意思,原來Hey Jude是指Julian Lennon,鼓勵他走出難關。一個簡單的事件,令到這首歌曲可以在音樂榜中長居榜首,實在令人難以捉摸。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由John Lennon及Paul McCartney(Lennon–McCartney)

“What’s that?
Camel sunshine”

Hey, hey, he-he-he-hey!

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don’t be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

Oh-oh-oh, 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

Hey Jude, don’t let me down
She has found you, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better
Better, better, better

So let it out and let it in
Hey Jude, begin
You’re waiting for someone to perform with
And don’t you know that it’s just you
Hey Jude, you’ll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, mm

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
The minute you let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better
Better, better, better, better, better, whoa, yeah!
