1. The Beatles experimented with many musical styles during a time when rock'n'roll was starting to expand beyond the original forms known as rockabilly, soul and other genres. Hard rock,heavy metal, ska, psychedelic rock and proto-punk were emerging. This party tune has been described by Stewart Copeland of the Police as a brilliant example of early "white reggae". It has lyrics that are kinda kooky and there's a lot of gonzo background singsong nonsence, too. A playful ditty that critics shouldn't take too seriously. It's just plain fun. This tune's title has various other spellings such as "obladi oblada". It has a simple cheerful free-for-all air to it that today's corporate disposable entertainment business doesn't allow.

2. a simple catchall term that means the same as "life goes on", "oh well", "la-di-da", "oh yeah", "whatever" and so on - expressed in a casual, unannoyed, devil may care, dismissive and blow it off manner and attitude. Nothing to get hung up about, but it's not the same as saying "shit happens". .
1. During the summertime when I was 14, me, my mom and my sister were sitting on plastic buckets and peeling apples. The radio was playing Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da by the Fab Four.

2. Anton: Hey look at this! Bradgelena are adopting yet ANOTHER Third World orphan. Also, Madonna has found a brand new lover!

Jeff: Yeah yeah yeah. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, life goes on. Yeah!
