9 Rock Songs Almost Ruined By Their Original Lyrics

 'Hey Jude' was originally 'Hey Jules'

When John and Cynthia Lennon separated in May of 1968, Paul McCartney felt especially bad for their five-year-old son, Julian. On a drive to visit Cynthia and Julian in the suburb of Weybridge, Paul composed a song in the car that he called “Hey Jules” in an attempt to comfort John’s son through his parents’ divorce. “I knew it was not going to be easy for him,” Paul said later, adding that he finally changed the name to “Hey Jude” because he thought “that sounded a bit better.” John must’ve loved singing this one.
