You didn't just ask me to choose between a couple of duds, did you? Objectively speaking, of course.

I guess "Let It Be" is slightly less horrific.

"Hey Jude" has got to be on the short list for most overrated songs of all time. It's vision and imagery is nothing short of trite. The song is the musical equivalent of a giant goopy tear. Nothing like forgetting you have an imagination to push those buttons.

As for the beloved 'na, na, na's', at the end. Think about this objectively and study the artistic effect of that orchestration. Don't you think it should be about finding the right note at the right time with the right feel that brings out the right intent? That sounds like a good definition of musical art, to me.

Since, I put it in those terms it now seems like they put a little too much syrup on the pancakes, if you know what I mean with those 'na, na, na's'.

Remember, it's all in the recipe when it comes to songwriting and that's an objecitve reality. Unfortunately, "Hey Jude" could've been cooked up by Sam the Butcher. It has all of the finesse and fine tuning of ingredients of a butcher's work.

That would be the postal equivalent of a snausage. Sure, they're tasty, but they're for dogs. And is that not the true spirit of music? Let us think on this.

hmmmmm, to be completely honest I don't care for either of those two songs like I also don't care for Come Together, Back in the USSR & The Long & Winding Road. And, mind you, I do like the Beatles...but those are the few songs out of their large lot that for some reason never stirred much in me except annoyance.

I love both of them, but Let It Be is the better song to me.

The freak-out at the end of Hey Jude brings it slightly above elevator music. Both songs have been massively overplayed.

Both, if I had to pick Hey Jude.
It's one of the first Beatle songs I remember liking, and possibly my favourite song of theirs that has piano in it.

the advantage to avoiding the radio is that you never hear either of them.
