DeadSplinter Up! All Night: Not in the dictionary

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da‘, besides not being in the dictionary, is the 4th track of the Beatles 1968 self-titled and only double album ‘The Beatles’ (aka the ‘White Album’):

‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’ wasn’t released as a single in the UK or the US. That caused a lot of bands to cover it hoping to land a hit. Scottish band Marmalade had the most commercially successful ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’ cover, and the only one that went to #1 in the charts (UK):

Thank you for your continued support of DeadSplinter, who is 1-year old this week. I’ve been here for 10 of the 12 months and I still haven’t managed to finish going through the DUANs I missed! Thanks to Keitel for letting me post some of the music I like, and to all of you for putting up with me!



    • Speaking of Elvis Presley, when I take my dog out for his many constitutionals we often have incidental run-ins with neighbors. It’s not directed at us, they’re usually on a phone screaming at someone or screaming at each other. I sing this to the dog:

    • cream will always get a star from me
      same for the who…and zappa…and pink floyd …..shit basically every thing me and me dad used to watch whilst getting high as a kite
      (dont expect the star tho….turns out im realy shit at remembering to star shit after ive read it)

  1. Most early REM lyrics were basically unintelligible. I still don’t know what half the words to this song are and I’ve seen them do it live. 

  2. Late to the party, but this is not a word.  Corey misread a sign in an airport overseas:

    Could also explain why so many of the song titles on this album are plays on words, e.g. “Fabuless” and “Knievel Has Landed.”
