Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da hand clap
« on: July 29, 2015, 11:15:48 PM »

I've heard the mono version on Youtube without the hand clap. I think I like it better. Which one do you guys prefer?

That's interesting to hear a different version, stopwow. I like that it's mono but I miss the hand claps. I like hand claps. LOL

In Britain 'Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da' is pretty much the go-to song for people who want to slag off The Beatles.

I sometimes think this is because they know the lame Marmalade version better which inexplicably was a U.K. no 1 single and not the much spikier original.

It's also hinted at that the song is somehow racist, conveniently forgetting (a.k.a. 'not knowing') that the phrase was African slang and that hundreds of black acts rushed to cover it before the 60s were out.

I don't really like the song to be honest.  I cant blame people for using it to slag the Beatles.

I've gone full circle on this one over the years.  Enjoyed it early in my fandom then grew extremely tired of it for decades, now gaining some appreciation for it again.  I'm ok with it now.  Not a must listen but ok when I hear it.

It's a harmless bit of fun and when I heard it as a youngster it stuck in my mind more than "cooler" Beatle songs. Perhaps just another example of The Beatles' ability to appeal to all ages.

Yeah.  Stick to your Reflections Of My Life, The Marmalade!

My favorite is Desmond Dekker's answer song...
