The 4-minute extended version of the moment last spring when 13,500 people sang “Hey Jude” together in London’s Trafalgar Square. Everyone involved arrived thinking they could be dancing – no-one had any idea how the event would unfold. (I see John Lennon up there smiling!)

“And any time you feel the pain, hey, Jude, refrain … Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders … Well, don’t you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder …”
