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.

debby233456 The Beatles are amazing for ALL ages. Don't be self righteous. I'm not 21 and my first word was "Paul" and I'm named after one of their songs. It doesn't matter how old you are to appreciate their music.

'Humourous lyrics'? Well the messed up words are pretty funny, glad they kept it that way. Though Paul may have just been to lazy to record again. Though in Helter Skelter...

I love this song. John stumbled into Abbey Road studios one night and shouted 'I am f**king stoned!' He sat down at a piano and came up with the piano intro the group had been struggling to compose. One of my favorite Beatles songs!!
