Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da

I like music but I don’t consider myself a connoisseur. In fact at many different parts of my life people have made fun of me for having the worst taste in music. It’s fine. I like my pop music, my oldies, my disco loving jams. I often think I should’ve been born in a different era.

Right now though I’ve been sitting here this afternoon with The Beatles in my head. Specifically the silly song Obladi Oblada because that is how I feel today. That is how I feel about life right now.

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!
Lala how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!
Lala how the life goes on.

It’s comforting and nonsensical. It’s uplifting and silly. Life is going to go on. No matter what happens, no matter what you go through, life is going to go on. I don’t know how it will work or what will happen but life will go on. So today in the background of my mind as I sit here wondering about life today I’ve got The Beatles in my head and a silly phrase ob-la-di, ob-la-da.

Do you ever get songs stuck in your head that might in some weird way relate to your life? Do you like this silly song? Did you see it performed at the Queen’s Jubilee Concert last week?
