Default some odd questions......

Do Blackbirds really sing at night? Or is poetic liscense?

Hey Jude is supposedly written with Julien in mind. Yet to me the lyrics are about a guy who is shy in expressing his love. Where is the connection?

Trying to answer the second question:

Hey Jude was a Paul's attempt to give Julian some hopes after loosing his father (in a symbolic way, obviously)and trying to teach him that even when all goes wrong, you can always make things better. That is the message to me. So simple.

As for the first question...I don't think black birds sing in the night. But, I'm not a bird watcher, so maybe I'm wrong

"Blackbird" is a precious metaphore, and I think it's one of Paul's finest lyrics.

"Hey Jude" is about whatever you want it to be. It's just as great as that.

Was I clear enough?

Don't think so. I think it just worked out that way in Paul's mind.
