Paul McCartney would never shoot a horse. But, no, I don't believe it was about drugs. Day Tripper yes, Hey Jude, no.

Paul said that he wrote it to John's son Julian, John thought it was Paul saying go ahead and go after what makes you happy. The british censors thought everything The Beatles put out by that time was about drugs.

No.

Paul wrote it about starting threads.

The Beatles all wore nice threads. Some of the threads on Amazon aren't so nice.

Maybe Julian had an extreme case of flatulence and Paul was imploring him to let 'er rip and then open a window.

That would explain how the movement ended up on his shoulder.

EDIT: Aw come on. An unhelpful, really? You just wish you came up with it, full stop. I came in through the bathroom humor.

I was felt the song was about three minutes too long. Mind numbing repetition. Oh yeah, I am a fan of the Beatles, but not a fan of Hey Jude. Now, I Am the Walrus - there's a cool song. I love the fade out on that one.

See, now that song was a complete typo on the part of the record company. John wrote that when due to a plumbing malfunction, he had to have a workman come help him. When Russell Crabgrass, his local fixit man, knocked on the door and said, "Mr Lennon, are you here?" John, who was experiencing a particularly strong trip said, "I'm In The Wall Russ!"

Some people just don't get a good fart joke.

I don't know if it was about drugs or not, but, as I recall, when it was first released, it was a popular song to listen to while doing drugs. And, it lasted forever ...

Thanks Rand. And I salute your addition to the thread.

Still, a bowel movement on someone's shoulder? Egh. That's more of a shart, innit?

Stones,

You're pushing the boundaries of punnage.

Is that a bad thing?

Bob Bykowski says:
With careful listening and recognition of where the Beatles were at during that point in their history, I believe the interpretation of Paul telling John to go after whatever makes him feel happy is the correct one. John was enraptured in the thrill of new, deep love for Yoko at that point in 1968, and "Hey Jude" seems to be Paul's recognition that he was no longer the most important person in John's life, and that Paul was sort of giving his blessing to that knowledge.

The long, repetitive chorus in the 2nd half of the song strikes me as the Beatles' plea for unity amidst the chaos and horrible events of '68.

It was also reputed to be about sex. (Wrong also).

I thought it was a Jewish hymn..."Hey Ju-Don't take it bad..."

(I can just feel the "NO" votes rolling in on that politially incorrect comment...lighten up "NO" people!)
