Symbolism "Another Chance"
by Helen Steiner Rice "Hey Jude" The Beatles:"Hey Jude" Camryn Bishop & Jocelyn Escobar The Beatles Wilson Pickett: "Hey Jude" Nickname: Fab Four

Members: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr

The Beatles were a British rock band that became one of the most successful and influential bands of the 20th century. Their music, films, fashion and image influenced pop culture, art, literature and lifestyles. Their ideas of love, peace, hope and imagination induced ingenuity and freedom, socially and politically. They broke records and walls in both the minds of teenage followers and political leaders, thus making an impact on history.

The Beatles was formed in July of 1957 by John Lennon when he was in high school. Afterward, Lennon met Paul McCartney and asked him to join the band, intrigued by his guitar playing. Soon after, McCartney convinced George Harrison to join the band in 1958 as the lead guitarist. In 1959, then named the Quarrymen, the band played gigs at a club named The Casbah. In 1960, Stuart Sutcliffe joined as bassist and later on, Peter Best joined as a drummer. From 1961-1960 the band toured Hamburg, Germany now going as the Beatles, the name thought of by Lennon, combining beat and beetles. Other names include Johnny & the Moon Dogs when the band only consisted of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison, and the Silver Beetles, comprised of the boys, Sutcliffe and Best. In Germany, Tony Sheridan asked the Beatles to be his backup band. Sutcliffe left the band after to be with his fiancé and Paul took over bass.

On February 21st, 1961 the Beatles performed at Liverpool’s Cavern Club where Brian Epstein saw them. He offered to manage the group and signed them for five years. Several recording companies declined the group until they met Parlophone's George Martin. They auditioned at Abbey Road studios in 1962 and passed except Pete Best. Martian asked Epstein to replace him and Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey) became the new drummer. In 1964 Ed Sullivan booked them to be on his show. The show received the highest ratings in the history of television up to then. Beatlemania had taken root in America. That same year they starred in their first motion picture called “A Hard Day’s Night” and began a world tour. In 1965, they starred in their second motion picture “HELP” and that same year, they performed at Shea Stadium in New York to a crowd of 55,000-77,000 spectators, the largest live rock concert to that day in history.

As Beatlemania began to grow, the crowd became wild throng, and the Beatles began to have dark moments with the public. The Beatles continued to outsell shows and records, dishing out hit after hit song, causing the fans to eat them up. They influenced fashion and styles of the decade, transformed music tours and initiated the pop promo film or the “music video”. In 1968, Brian Epstein died from a drug and alcohol overdose and things began to collapse for the band. In 1966 the Beatles stopped public appearances after too many shows where many of the fans got injured and they themselves were either threatened or hurt. The Beatles created over 240 songs and countless album sales. Their last album together with all the members was Abbey Road. The band announced their breakup in 1970 and each member went onto do solo records and shows. John Lennon was assassinated on June 8th, 1980. The three remaining members paid tribute to Lennon by releasing and mixing an unknown song by Lennon called “free as a bird”. On November 29th, 2001 George Harrison died of lung cancer. The Beatles were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame in 1988. Their music and legacy still influence many artists today, because of their message carried out in all of their music to give peace a chance and for people to work it out. “Hey Jude” was written by Paul McCartney to comfort John Lennon’s son Julian during his parents’ divorce, whom he’d always been rather close to. It’s one of the few songs to be written about a personal situation with the band. Originally, the song was called “Hey Jules” but he thought “Hey Jude” sounded better.
The song was recorded in 1968 at Trident Studios. “Hey Jude” sold more than three million copies in two months and was at the top of the American Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks. It was added into the Grammy Hall of fame in 2001 and in 2004; Rolling Stone declared it the 8th greatest song of all time. Is about 7:11 long and with a four minute fade out of “na, na, nana, hey Jude”. It’s the third longest Beatles song and the first long song aired on the radio paving the way for songs such as “American Pie” and “Layla”.
During the recording, Harrison and McCartney got into a tense argument over when Harrison’s would play the guitar that ended with Harrison storming out. However, he came back to finish recording. Ringo was allegedly using the restroom when recording began and came back just as his cue came up. During a part of the song, you can hear someone shout a curse word who some say is Lennon after he messed up a chord; it was never taken out of the radio single.
Paul McCartney played this song for the 2005 Super Bowl halftime show and for the 2012 summer Olympics’ opening ceremony. Register

"Don't carry the world upon your shoulders..." Anaphora, or repetition, was used often throughout the song with the phrases:

"Hey Jude"
"make it better"
"go and get her"
"Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better."
"na na na, na-na na na" Assonance

"...pain, hey Jude, refrain" - the 'ai'
"...fool who plays it cool"- the double 'o'
"And don't you know that it's just you? Hey Jude, you'll do."- the long 'u' Metaphor

His raspy bluesy voice is naturally deeper than the clear, melancholy voice McCartney uses. Repetition "You'll be alright"

to make a fresh beginning.

A chance to blot out our mistakes

And change failure into winning.

It does not take a new day

To make a brand new start,

It only takes a deep desire

To try with all our heart.

To live a little better

And to always be forgiving

And to add a little sunshine

To the world in which we're living.

So never give up in despair

And think that you are through,

For there's always a tomorrow

And the hope of starting new. Title-

The title of the poem tells us it is about having another chance. Another chance is redemption, being able to redeem yourself or allow others to atone for what they have done.


Sometimes we want to start fresh, erase our mistakes and reform our past. You do not need a whole new situation to begin anew if you truly wish to amend your ways. You should want to live better, to pardon others and make the world happier. So do not give up and condemn yourself to triviality as there is always another chance to make things better.


With inspirational diction, Helen Rice creates an uplifting and motivational poem. Using phrases such as “another chance”, “fresh beginning”, “new day”, “new start” and “tomorrow” in the poem, Rice encourages the reader to keep moving forward and be optimistic.


The speaker of the poem is positive, hopeful and reassuring. Rice, the poet, had a very challenging life, from having to sustain her family after her father passed away to having to deal with her husband’s suicide after the stock markets crashed. Throughout her life, she continued to make inspirational poems even if her life was desolate. The optimistic attitude of the poem was achieved with use of aforementioned simple words of “new”, “fresh”, and “tomorrow” to evoke power and hope to a reader. The attitude she expresses is to never to give up or give in and to always give yourself a chance to begin again.


In the opening stanzas of the poem, it shifts from a yearning for a new beginning to a reassuring that there always is a new day to start over and a chance to make things right.


The title “Another Chance” is having a new day to change your actions, to always hope for a better outcome and bring delight and bliss to the world, instead of pondering over the past and what has already occurred.


What the poet is trying to convey to the reader is to always hope. Hope that tomorrow will be better, that a new day can bring a new outlook on the world, and to never relinquish trying to change failures into victories.
