Geoff makes clear what @Ahhh Girl  said, he says that John was saying all the time, "Paul said in an expletive Hey jude". The voice seems to be John, and was typical through John. But it seems that Paul was even ...

I take it that quote is from his book? I'd take it with a pinch of salt to be honest. As good as the book is he seems to remember precise conversations from 40 years ago, and recollections like this *may* be a tad cloudy? Besides which, Ken Scott and Barry Sheffield (at Trident) were the engineers on Hey Jude . Not to say Geoff wasn't around, but I'm pretty sure he wasn't at Trident where the vocals and overdubs were recorded, or at the mixing sessions (well, not according to Lewisohn anyway).

Regarding the swearing - as someone who has spent a lifetime being bombarded by this particularly Liverpudlian expletive, I'm convinced it's not Paul. He'd definitely use a higher-pitched voice, being a bit dramatic. To me, it sounds like George, especially as John seems to be on record saying it was someone else.

I'm always intrigued by that gap from 5:37 to 5:58. It's like he forgot to keep doing the ad-libs, but was jolted awake again by Ringo's manic drum fill.

Immediately before 5:37 Paul says something i can never quite make out, sounds like it ends with "... back to you" or "back through". Maybe Paul's quiet moment was related to that - a Paul felt flaw in the basic take that was eventually decided best by the group? I'd love to know what it is that Paul says.

I like to think the ad-libs at the end are some of the best parts of the song, they really get me hyper. Just bouncing all over the place.

With love from me, to you.

If you listen VERY carefully, you'll notice that sometimes Paul actually says "Hey Trud" :)   Just sayin'.... a-hard-days-night-george-10

If you want more (and better, IMO) ad-libs, listen to Take 1.

@MrMoonlight, take 1 of 'Hey Jude ' hasn't been booted or released officially. Do you mean take 2 which is on 'Anthology 3 ', one of the bootlegged outtakes or take 1 of the promo films?

I don't think it's too long. I don't think any Beatles song is too long

Too short sometimes but never too long. The medley tracks on Abbey Road for example.

The Beatles are English - They have influences from all over - but they are English

Every Radio Station Ever Probably Owes The FCC Money Thanks To The Beatles

So what’s the alleged FCC violation we’re talking about?
(snip)
Right after “remember to let her under your skin” is sung, you can hear someone yelling “OH!”, immediately followed by a quietly spoken phrase.

You’ve probably actually sung along to the “OH!” part, but did you ever notice the talking right after it?

Listen again. Someone can allegedly be heard saying “f*cking hell”.

Originally, the song “Hey Jude ” was intended to only be released as a single. However, two years after its release date, the song found a home on side 2 of Beatles Again.

So how could this violation be ignored during the song selection for the Hey Jude album? And for every re-release and spin of the song since?

Well, profanity might not even be in the song. But according to multiple sound engineers who worked on the record, it’s there.

Beatles sound engineers, Geoff Emerick and Ken Scott, claim that the profanity came from Paul McCartney and that John Lennon decided to leave it in the final mix.

Lennon has allegedly been quoted as saying, “Paul hit a clunker on the piano and said a naughty word, but I insisted we leave it in, buried just low enough so that it can barely be heard. Most people won’t ever spot it … but we’ll know it’s there.”

While this story is semi-satisfactory, it seems a little fishy to us. Do you really believe that Lennon would release this golden nugget of information to the public?

Sound engineer Malcolm Toft’s account sounds a bit more believable.

Toft told authors Kevin Ryan and Brian Kehew, “Barry Sheffield engineered ‘Hey Jude ’, but I mixed it … John Lennon says a very rude word about halfway through the song. At 2:57 you will hear a ‘Whoa!’ from him in the background. About two seconds later you will hear, ‘[expletive] hell!’ This was because when he was doing a vocal backing, Barry sent him the foldback level [headphone volume] too loud and he threw the cans on the ground and uttered the expletive. But, because it had been bounced down [mixed] with the main vocal, it could not be removed. I just managed to bring the fader down for a split second on the mix to try to lessen the effect.”

Unfortunately, we may never know what really happened, but trying to guess is pretty fun.

Also, we can’t even prove if the mystery voice is in fact swearing, but isn’t it fun to think that the Beatles have been in on this FCC prank for the past 47 years?

Hello everybody,

I have a question, what is the brand and the name of the piano than Paul play in the clip of Hey Jude ? 🙂

I post this question because I'm interested to buy a piano as it! 🙂

Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I'll be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first—rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me. -John Lennon

Back in post 38 in this thread, I put ^^ this information. What I know now didn't hit me as interesting at the time.

Monday I read in Tune In that Julia Lennon's nickname was Judy. Then I heard Hey Jude the next morning, and the "Judy" in the na-na-na-na-na-na-na part really JUMPED out at me. Paul may not have consciously put that into the song, but I wonder if there was some subconscious part of his mind that put it in.

On a much less serious note: does anyone else put the syllable "ba" at the beginning or in the middle of the na-na-na-na-na-na-na part? a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Welcome to the forum, @Beatles007. Hopefully someone will know what brand of piano Paul is playing on this song.

Thank you 🙂

I find my answer to my question from the internet here : https://www.bonhams.com/auctio.....4/lot/231/

The piano when Paul has played "Hey Jude " is a "Challen" with the serial number 76688. 🙂

To do a comparison of the piano from the website and from the clip :

It's from a film called Music, @Beatlebug, made by the National Music Council of Great Britain.

Filmed at Abbey Road on 30 July 1968, the second Hey Jude  session, it was filmed after Paul and George had fallen out after Paul objected to what George was playing - an incident referred to during their "I'll play whatever you want me to play, or I won't play at all..." exchange at Twickenham a few months later, explaining why George is up in the control room.

PAUL 1985: "I remember on 'Hey Jude ' telling George not to play guitar. He wanted to do echo riffs after the vocal phrases, which I didn't think was appropriate. He didn't see it like that, and it was a bit of a number for me to have to 'dare' to tell George Harrison -- who's one of the greats-- not to play. It was like an insult. But that's how we did alot of our stuff."

That "incident" has been blown way of proportion (Yeah, the cameras just happened to be rolling during 'Let It Be ')...  Pay close attention to George while they perform it on the David Frost Show, his exuberance appears pretty genuine to me...:-)

About the line "the movement you need is on your shoulder" :

I just realized today it could be referring to a shrug, essentially saying to Julian to just shrug off the absence of his dad in his life. Maybe i'm slow to realize this, but I'm not quite sure what I think of the line. Paul wanted to remove it but John really loved it.

Many of us have seen the video of this song they performed for David Frost's show titled Frost On Sunday. I read something today in The Beatles Book  that I never knew about that video.

Sadly, one young man, seen in some clips standing behind Ringo, died of cancer one week after the taping. He was the son of Dennis O'Dell, the chief of Apple's film division.

In the video, the audience starts crowding around the band at roughly 4:00 in. I don't know which one is young Master O'Dell, but I have a guess.
