Which epic ode with the gaudy long outro is your all time favorite? Sir Paul's uplifting anthem for Lennon's son, or (D)Eric's desperate plea for Harrison's wife?

I always loved Hey Jude and was never that big a fan of Layla though I do like the song.

The outro to Hey Jude is fun.  We used to always sing along.

I believe the drummer Jim Gordon wrote the Layla outro. Too lazy to look it up.

Going with Sir Paul on this one. Sorry, Jim.

Layla bores me to tears.  Hey Jude just to the point of wanting to cry.  So Hey Jude gets the nod.

Layla

Never liked the coda until I rented Goodfellas at a local library a decade ago.  Freaking love it ever since.

I saw a young Derek Trucks (13) at Walnut Creek in Raleigh play the Layla outro:

Layla is horrible.  I would be okay if I never heard the song again and the ending is tedious.

Also had to mention Freebird.  The most overrated pile of poo ever which also contains an outro that goes on for far too long.

I like Hey Jude.

Thinking about it, you're probably right. Wasn't looking too closely at it. Oops.
