The duo, made of up <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/latest/paul-mccartney” target=”_blank”>Paul McCartney</a> and <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/latest/john-lennon” target=”_blank”>John Lennon</a>, wrote dozens of songs for the band, including Yesterday, Come Together, In My Life, Get Back, All You Need Is Love and many more.</p></div><div readability=”38.474025974026″><p>It has now been revealed that the most popular song is a track that was predominantly written by McCartney.</p><p>Over 2,000 listeners of Union JACK Radio cast votes on what the best Beatles song of all time is, and today it has been announced.</p><p>The poll marked the four best songs from The Beatles, starting with Hey Jude.</p><p>The piano-led ballad is followed by the classic banger Eleanor Rigby.</p><p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1534014/paul-mccartney-john-lennon-death” data-name=”‘I couldn’t handle it’ McCartney’s first response to Lennon’s death” target=”_blank”>’I couldn’t handle it’ McCartney’s first response to Lennon’s death</a></strong></p></div><div readability=”46.356965174129″><p>After that, The Beatles tracks A Day in the Life and Yesterday follow, becoming the third and fourth most popular tracks from the Fab Four. The Union JACK Radio poll was held to mark the launch of <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/latest/disney-plus” target=”_blank”>Disney Plus</a> series Get Back. The radio station also held a Beatles-focussed talk show that is available to stream now.</p><p>The show is hosted by “Beatlemaniac” Geoff Lloyd, who said: “Hey Jude is one of The Beatles most adored hits, so it’s not at all surprising that Union JACK Radio’s listeners placed it in the top spot. “The song started life as Hey Jules – written by Paul McCartney to comfort John Lennon’s son, Julian, during his parents’ divorce … It provides a soundtrack to key events in modern British life, such as the London Olympics Opening Ceremony and The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Concert.”</p></div><div readability=”54”><p>McCartney added: “I thought, as a friend of the family, I would motor out to Weybridge and tell them that everything was all right, to try and cheer them up, basically, and see how they were. I had about an hour’s drive. I would always turn the radio off and try and make up songs, just in case.</p><p>”It was optimistic, a hopeful message for Julian: ‘Come on, man, your parents got divorced. I know you’re not happy, but you’ll be OK.’”</p><p>He added: “I eventually changed ‘Jules’ to ‘Jude’. One of the characters in Oklahoma is called Jud, and I like the name.”</p><p>Lennon felt the track had a different meaning, however.</p></div><div readability=”48.737980769231”><p>Lennon told David Sheff: “I always heard it as a song to me. If you think about it, Yoko’s just come into the picture. He’s saying: ‘Hey Jude – hey John.'</p><p>”I know I’m sounding like one of those fans who reads things into it, but you can hear it as a song to me. The words ‘go out and get her’ – subconsciously he was saying, go ahead, leave me. On a conscious level, he didn’t want me to go ahead. The angel in him was saying: ‘Bless you.’ The devil in him didn’t like it at all because he didn’t want to lose his partner.”</p><p>Hey Jude was released in 1968 and reached number one in 21 countries. By 1999 the track had sold more than eight million copies worldwide.&nbsp;</p><p><em><strong>Listen to Geoff Lloyd’s Get Back online at <a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/unionjack.co.uk” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>unionjack.co.uk</a>.</strong></em></p><p><a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/the-beatles-paul-mccartney-hey-jude-the-story-behind-the-song/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>SOURCE</a></p><p><span>https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/the-beatles-paul-mccartney-hey-jude-the-story-behind-the-song/</span></p></div> Fri, 10 Dec 2021 00:01:00 +0000 Callum Crumlish

Seems that the drop drought is slowly beginning.”</p><p>Elsewhere, GAME could also be dropping more PS5 stock next week, with standalone consoles as well as bundles set to be available.</p><p>GAME, like Amazon UK, had also been expected to release more PS5 stock this week – with a rumoured restock predicted for December 9 or 10.</p><p>These dates came and went without without and stock becoming available to buy though. The GAME website lists its next lot of PSS stock as having a release date of Monday December 20.</p><p>So that indicates the next PS5 GAME restock could go live the week beginning Monday December 13. It’s unclear, at the time of writing, what date GAME could open orders for the PS5 once again.</p><p>But GAME PS5 restocks typically go live between 9am and 11am UK time, so watch out for restocks around that time next week.</p></div> Fri, 10 Dec 2021 19:42:23 +0000 Dion Dassanayake

    Clifford the Big Red Dog REVIEW: Yet another ET rip-off with cheap animations https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/1534450/clifford-big-red-dog-review

    <div><img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/36/750×445/1534450.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”></div><div readability=”39″><p>As it’s for a cheap family film starring a CGI dog and, ahem, Jack Whitehall, this feels about as trustworthy as that Vote Leave bus ad promising the NHS £350m a week. A scramble for seats is unlikely. Still, pet-loving tots should lap up this big-hearted adventure based on Norman Bridwell’s children’s books. Clifford is an alarmingly red and unusually big puppy sent to teach a bullied girl and her feckless uncle the power of love.</p></div><div readability=”44″><div readability=”33″><p>Twelve-year-old Emily Elizabeth Howard (Darby Camp) is branded “Food Stamp” when she lands a scholarship to a fancy school frequented by spoilt rich kids. The misfit faces another challenge when she is left in the care of her unemployed man-child Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) while her single mum Maggie (Sienna Guillory) leaves town on business.</p><p>Whitehall, affecting a grating American accent, starts off his babysitting stint with a trip to an animal shelter run by a mysterious Englishman called Mr Bridwell (John Cleese). There, Emily falls in love with a tiny, bright red, cheaply animated CGI golden retriever pup.</p><p>”How big is he gonna get?” she asks. “That depends… on how much you love him,” responds Mr Bridwell, cryptically. It turns out that Emily loves him a great deal. Within hours of sneaking him into her cramped apartment, the pooch has grown to the size of an elephant.</p><p>When footage of Clifford goes viral, evil biotech boss Zac Tieran (Tony Hale) tries to capture the mutt to harvest its growthspurting DNA. As parents are confronted with yet another E.T. rip-off, kids are hit with pratfalls, along with lessons about the importance of kindness.</p></div></div> Fri, 10 Dec 2021 17:08:41 +0000 en

    Green Day BBC Sessions REVIEW: Vintage whine has aged well https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1534385/green-day-bbc-sessions-review
    https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/music/1534385/green-day-bbc-sessions-review
    <div><img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/35/750×445/1534385.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”></div><div readability=”36″><p>They made their first big chart impact here with Basket Case in 1994 ‑ the same year they performed their first live session at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in West London. This 16-track compilation serves up rare nuggets from that session and three later ones, including four remastered songs from each.</p></div><div readability=”58″><p>It opens with the magnificent She, the bass and drums joined swiftly by Billie Joe Armstrong singing, “She, she screams in silence” before, 27 seconds in, the guitar kicks in and he asks, “Are you locked up in a world that’s been planned out for you?”</p><p>It’s a perfect blend of punk, pop and youthful frustration, delivered in just over two minutes.</p><p>Like other songs from the 1994 session ‑ When I Come Around, Basket Case and 2000 Light Years Away ‑ it comes from their superb third album</p><p>Dookie. Green Day returned to the BBC studios in November 1996, while touring with the darker Insomniac album, and recorded all four of its singles.</p><p>Brain Stew/Jaded is a jarring stand-out. Powered by a terse riff, Brain Stew is slow, heavy and unsettling before accelerating into Jaded.</p></div><div readability=”48”><p>Their third session, in 1998, featured Nimrod-era ditties such as boozy bopper Hitchin’ A Ride.</p><p>For their fourth, they played songs from Warning, their cheeriest album, which didn’t sell as well globally but went Top 5 here.</p><p>Three years later, American Idiot topped the album charts worldwide, cementing Green Day’s status as one of the biggest rock bands of their generation.</p><p>To paraphrase Billie Joe, make sure you find the time to listen to them whine.</p></div> Fri, 10 Dec 2021 15:24:00 +0000 Garry Bushell
