anyone remember T V show Life Goes On ? they played Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da as it began - it starred a Mongoloid Boy Very Good Show but didn't last long - garbage like Friends and Big Bang Theory and other trashy stuff has taken over

I am a huge Beatles fan. They wrote a lot of great songs. This isn't one of them. I figure they were all high and we're just looking for some filler material for the album. It worked we're all still listening. They made money everybody's happy

In 8th grade our choral teacher had us sing Ob La Di, Ob La Da for a spring concert. It was the most awesome thing.

Beatles are the definition of Rock N' Roll

The Beatles have been named one of the greatest bands of all time... Anyone who doesn't like them.. Should at least respect their name & influence in music.
