I cracked up when the backing vocals came in.
I just want to shoot some heroin and curl up and die while I enjoy this...
E is for 'Ergent'.

Can you play "Eleanor Rigby" in a major key?
I think this guy takes requests. ;->
Haha, somehow the process also miraculously changed the image of 1982 Michael Jackson to 1987 Michael Jackson!
I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
This is really interesting... I kinda like it, but the end is fighting to be happy despite the minor! Wait... no it's just getting sadder... Now it seems back and forth sad, happy... I don't know, but it's quite interesting.
Sadly the Beat It video doesn't work... What's funny is at one point Michael Jackson owned both of those songs!
That "Hey Jude" was kinda perturbing to me, 'cause the original always sounded to me like it was in a minor key already. Thought I had the ability to differentiate just from hearing (and often do) but that one's misleading. I'm sure someone here has the musical knowledge to explain why it fools me so (though probably not in a way I can easily understand.)
One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney
Yes Vontee, the original in the major key of F does have a minorish feel. I think it's because the melody is flirting with a melody that would also fit into the minorish mode called "Dorian" which would use Gm7 to C (In Hey Jude, we have Bb and C7, which are similar).
There's one major problem, however, with converting it to minor: the signature melodic leitmotif -- the two notes sung for the title words, "Hey Jude..." strongly dip down from a C to an A note for the dominant F major chord (also the key of the whole song); and it is precisely the A note that makes the F chord a major chord!
That signature melodic motif ("Hey Jude...") are practically as famous and familiar to our ears as the first four notes of Beethoven's 5th.

Faded flowers, wait in a jar, till the evening is complete... complete... complete... complete...
Call me anything you want, but I liked it. It sounds more… dramatic.
“Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit” (“Perhaps one day it will be a pleasure to look back on even this”; Virgil, The Aeneid, Book 1, line 203, where Aeneas says this to his men after the shipwreck that put them on the shores of Africa)
I like it. It makes it sound more epic and ironic. I also noticed at 2:53 you can hear the infamous expletive.
Look its a thingy! A fiendish thingy!
