The Beatles, “Hey Jude”
Sir Paul wrote this classic for bandmate John Lennon’s son in 1968. Lennon was in the midst of a nasty split with wife Cynthia Powell at the time, and 5-year-old Julian was having a hard time coping. Enter McCartney with these words of wisdom: "And any time you feel the pain, hey, Jude, refrain / Don't carry the world upon your shoulders / Well, don't you know that it's a fool who plays it cool / By making his world a little colder." —Jeff Royer
