Las mejores canciones en 1968 – Parte 1

El año 1968 fue un año muy productivo desde el punto de vista musical y Hey Jude de los Beatles fue la número uno.

Cuatro meses le bastaron a este clásico de los Beatles para convertirse en el gran éxito de 1968. Hey Jude se publicó en un sencillo que salió a la venta el 26 de Agosto en los EE UU y cuatro días despúes en el Reino Unido. El lado B del vinilo era Revolution.

Esta era la primera canción de los Beatles que se lanzaba bajo el sello discográfico Apple Records. Hey Jude es una tema basado en “Hely Jules”, pieza que Paul McCartney compuso para consolar a Julian Lennon tras el divorcio de sus padres.

Récords

Otra característica de esta canción es que con su duración de 7 minutos (inusitada para la época) se convirtió en la canción más larga de la historia en ocupar el Top 10 de las listas británicas de sencillos.

Otro récord de Hey Jude es que logró mantenerse 9 semanas en el primer lugar de la lista Hot 100 de Billborad, siendo la canción de los Beatles que más tiempo ha permanecido en el tope en los EE UU.

Para el 30 de Noviembre de 1968 con tan solo tres meses de publicada ya había vendido a nivel mundial un total de seis millones de copias, llegando a vender ocho millones en ese año.
