Fun Beatles Song Facts

If you can't stand the song Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, you're not alone. John Lennon hated it too. It was Paul's attempt at being reggae, but neither he nor Ringo could lay down a reggae beat to save their lives. John stormed out of the recording session, came back stoned, high, drunk, or just generally pepped up on goofballs, sat down and banged out the piano parts. The transposition of the names Desmond and Molly from one verse to the next was a mistake by Paul, but they kept it in.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da means "life goes on" in a Nigerian dialect. They were sued by a conga playing friend of theirs who used it as his catch phrase.

All this courtesty of wikipedia.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
