The composition of “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” song is ascribed to both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. However, it is believed that it was McCartney who wrote it and that Lennon actually ‘hated’ the song. “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” appeared at the time when reggae was becoming quite popular in Great Britain. The song’s title and the ob-la-di-ob-la-da tagline was taken from an acquaintance of Paul McCartney – Jimmy Scott, a conga player from Nigeria. Years after the official release of the song in 1968 (and in 1976 in the US and UK) Jimmy claimed credit for the usage of the phrase in the song, and McCartney agreed to pay. The song is also known as one of the most popular ridicule subjects at the time, it even used to be named one of ‘the worst songs’ a few times. It didn’t make it less popular though.

the funniest guitar song ever, isnt it!

comments Simon J.B. 18 Feb 2015 08:37

whenever you feel down or depressed - that's the song to lift your mood - my personal recipe - checked and proved!

comments Gregory Lawrence 03 Feb 2015 07:51

Once in a while, when I feel like making my spouse smile, I take my old guitar and the hands start playing this song right away. Some songs will always stay legendary, no matter how many years - decades! - have passed from the time of their composition. That's what I love The Beatles for - the guys knew how to make music that would last. That is true gift.

comments alex 03 Jun 2014 08:54

I've loved the song since I first heard it when I was a child! It's so fun to listen to when you grow up too, very cheerful and uplifting. It would have been a loss I guess if the rest of the guys hadn't accepted Paul's song. It's so colorful in dynamics and melody, that the fact that it used to be called one of the worst songs ever is still a mystery to me.

comments Lauren 02 Jun 2014 11:22

It's hard to believe that Lennon (or anyone else) didn't like the song and that the band seemed to have some difficulties to record it. I remember watching their concert with obla di obla da performed too - they looked like having a lot of fun and enjoying the song altogether. To me, it is a most essential part of The Beatles repertoire and it now sounds so natural suitable

comments Roger 26 May 2014 08:46

Maybe there is something wrong with me (or I’m getting old?) but I rarely find something in contemporary music that attracts me as much as old bands like The Beatles! Remember the other I was sitting and banging the Ob-la-di ob-la-da on my guitar and I felt the happiest person in the world. The legends are the legends, I don’t think there will ever be anyone to come even near close to them.
