Hey Jude, the Beatles' best selling single, is released. Paul remembers, "I was driving out to see Cynthia and Julian. Cyn and John had just separated and they were still friends. I was singing 'Hey Jules,' and I got this idea-'don't make it bad'-you know, this situation. Take a sad song, make it better. Eventually, I thought Jules didn't sound quite right, and Jude just sounded better."
