There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

There is not much I can say about this week’s song that hasn’t already been said and if you don’t know it’s The Beatles singing Hey Jude then you have spent your whole life living in a cave. The recording is not everything it seems. The Beatles were supposed to be guests on Frost On Saturday but they didn’t go to him, he went to them. The song was recorded at Twickenham Film Studios and made to look as though it were record on the show. The Beatles arrived at the studios at 1.30pm and worked until early evening. The set, at the studio’s stage one, had been assembled over the previous three days.

Hey Jude featured Paul McCartney seated at an upright piano, John Lennon and George Harrison on a nearby podium with guitars, and Ringo Starr positioned on a drum riser behind them. A 36-piece orchestra was also assembled, the members wearing white tuxedos, and 300 extras were brought in for the finale. The latter had been recruited after 20 students handed out leaflets in the area, and The Beatles’ assistant Mal Evans invited a number of fans from outside EMI Studios.

The Hey Jude film had its world premiere on 8th September 1968 on Frost On Saturday. To make it seem as though The Beatles were on the programme, David Frost visited Twickenham on this day to record an introduction. He does waffle on a bit so this has been edited out here…

Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.

  1. “You know that it’s a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder!”

    Local legend has it that Paul wrote this song for Julian Lennon, John’s son, because Julian was upset about John leaving him and his mother Cynthia for Yoko Ono.

  2. The world has been about to end ever since the first caveman was able to visualize it.

    Fuck it. Eat the pizza, have the drink, and most definitely give her the business.

  3. I worry the UK & Ireland will never come to an understanding about a border because the UK can’t understand Irish basics like making children look into grandparent’s coffins whilst adults sit nearby eating sandwiches.

  4. I just want to live in a world that requires every construction company who is building a new building to put up a sign that tells the public what the new building/business is going to be, that’s all.
