On July 30, 1968, the Beatles closed their 'Apple Boutique' store at 94 Baker Street, Marylebone, London after seven months of business and losses exceeding 200,000 Pounds, they gave away all the stock to passers by and Apple staff... And on that very same day the song entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #10, two weeks later on September 22nd it would peak at #1 and for 14 of its 19 weeks on the chart it was in the Top 10... I have listened to a good portion of their catalog (11 albums down, just a few more to go) and this is my favorite so far.
At the time the Fab Four didn't have a record on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; but just over six weeks later on September 8th "Hey Jude" entered the Top 100 way up at #10, the following week it climbed to #3, then on it's third week on the chart it reached #1, and there it remained for 9 weeks... I get tired of some people's constant supposition that all Beatles songs have to have a main drug basis.
Cynthia, who married Lennon after meeting him in college, died yesterday at her home in Spain.
A message on her son Julian's website said he was at her beside throughout, and the family 'are thankful for your prayers'.

If you think love is a drug, then yes, it's about drugs. The four minute repetition is unique, and it impresses me how it never really gets repetitive (at least, it doesn't get repetitive for me).
The simplicity is part of the song's beauty - it doesn't need anything fancy to convey its comforting message.
He is asked about his father wherever he goes and his own musical talent — he is a songwriter, guitarist and singer — has been overshadowed by the awe in which John is held. Sean, subsequently, grew up in a New York apartment worth millions.Julian, 35, is the Sixties child of John Lennon and his first wife, Cynthia; he was abandoned by his father when he was five and only recently received a share of the vast Lennon estate.Sean, 22, is the favoured son, for whom John Lennon became a househusband.By an unhelpful co-incidence, the two sons of John Lennon released solo albums on the same day last week. But I do think there are things done without his knowledge.In headline terms, this could mean only one thing: the half brothers were engaged in "open warfare" to determine which of them has inherited the creative talent of their late father. Someone in the camp could be manipulating events." By this, he means the New York-based Lennon "camp", under the control of Yoko Ono, Lennon's widow and the mother of Sean.Not only was his mother, Cynthia Lennon, in attendance at Julian’s first photographic show at a New York gallery, but he was also publicly reconciled with Yoko and her son — his half-brother — Sean Lennon.
