In what year was the song Java Jive written?
The Ink Spots recorded Java Jive in 1940 so it had to be before that.
The song, "Hey Jude", was originally written as an apology song, "Hey Jules". This is a song written by Lennon to his Julian when he divorced from his first wife. Paul McCartney changed some of the lyrics and music, and "Hey Jude" was the result. The song was written in 1968, and released in August of that year.
