I really don't get the Ob-La-Di hatred. Yeah, it's a slight song but it's a totally wired performance and I love the laughing and clowning around in the background. This sounds like a band having fun, whereas a lot of the other songs on the album sound like jaded, miserable men doing solo projects. I think maybe the convoluted recording and Lennon's bashing of it don't do it any favours historically.
I agree. I love it. It's such a happy, positive song.
