“Kindly, charitable interest in others, and as a verb “to honor or to favor” fits this song’s true genesis: the song–Hey Jude, by the performers once known as The Beatles, originally known as “Hey Jules,” was written by Paul McCartney as a source of inspiration for John Lennon’s son Julian during a time when John Lennonwas divorcing and Paul was [closer to Julian that John was]. Which is not to suggest that John Lennon was not a beloved father—we all know that as children there are plenty of adults with whom we feel that we can talk with more ease than with our parents. The song, recorded with a live 36 piece orchestra, featured Ringo not coming into the song until after it had started—he had been stuck in the washroom, but, as Ringo said, the room was “only yards from the drum booth” and as Paul as said “Ringo’s timing was impeccable.”

John Lennon is noted many times as listening to a song soon to be seen on this page called A Whiter Shade Of Pale—which has the same speed element: the drifting of speeds between 69 and 76 beats per minute—but a measure or two above that—for example, 78.7—one could be assured that with a measure the speed with either:

a) Decelerate within a measure or two; or
b) stay accelerated but making up speed in order that unconsciously the overall meanspeed of the song is actively graceful.
Hey Jude accelerates slowly and in and arc form, as you can see. The acceleration is not extreme. In the first minute, one measure bottoms out at 69.5 bpm, and then between the 75% and 80% mark of the advance of the song, there is one spiked measure as fast as nearly 77. The song comes back to the mean speed in the last 20% ending by moving from 73 to 74 beats per minute—establishing the unconditional love speed.
