"Granny shit music!" John referred to 3 titles when he used the term. The first was Ob-La Di, Ob-La-Da. The second was
Maxwell's Silver Hammer. The third, of which John's disdain is obvious in this take, was this...

I had never heard that song before! Thanks for sharinga-hard-days-night-ringo-10

It's on McCartneyPaul's first album. It has also been stuck in my head all day, so I'm glad it's here to listen to! 

Here's Paul's version alone (the official one):

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

8) George, who for all his spirituality was actually the least forgiving Beatle and the most materialistic, never got passed it.

 

DrBeatle said

And spot on about George, too. With him, it was always personal, to the day he died.

 

I never believed in his spirituality thing, it was all hypocrisy to me. If he was so religious shouldn't he have learned to forgive ? So how could he write his autobiography without citing John's name ? Without John you have no Beatles so you have no George and you have no autobiography. Religion didn't change him, it's the same guy who hold a grudge against Tony Meehan for 6 years ! He told him in 68 that he was responsible if the Beatles were rejected the first time by EMI in 62  ! I seriously doubt that this kind of attitude was the mantra you found in the sacred scriptures of his beloved yogis. All his speeches about God and Krishna were just a whole lot of bollocks. how could he talk seriously about the danger of a material world in the garden of his mansion in front of his Ferrari ? Pure crap.

Personally, I think much of the complaints about Paul's "Granny Sh*t Music" stems from the fact that he outwrote (by sheer quantities) the others, the consequence is that although he's often portrayed as the most prolific songwriter ever, one must also recognize that he probably wrote the most "throwaways" due to his vast output as well.  Just look at the 'Band On The Run' album which often gets the nod as his "best" work.  Although it contains some great songs, it also features more "Granny Sh*t Music" as well, 'Bluebird'?  'Picasso's Last Words'?  Mrs. Vandebilt?  "Ho, Hey Ho, Ho, Hey Ho"?!  Most fans wouldn't have remembered these had they been on say, 'Wings Wild Life' or 'Red Rose Speedway' or something.  Paul definitely wrote many of the best ('Hey Jude's my all-time favourite) but also gave us many of the worst, in my opinion..:-)

The above is about the best way i have heard it... Paul had a lot of great sh*t.. but also a lot of just plain sh*t.. if you must be a Paul or John apologist - you are just not being honest with yourself. no human is great all the time

I don't think John had one least favourite Paul song, @Annadog40. He had several least favourites. ahdn_paul_01

But they all grew to despise Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, due to Paul making them bash out forty takes of it. I think John was also particularly shoulder-chippish at the time, anyway. a-hard-days-night-john-5

I'm not too big on Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da either, to be honest.

With all due respect, I don't see why there are so many Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da-bashers. I like it myself-- it's so ridiculously upbeat. But that's just my opinion... 

I think I could stand it if they hadn't sped it up after recording, though. It makes it that much harder to sing along with the record. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

This goes on in every popular band, by the way. Dave Davies detests half of Ray Davies' songs with the Kinks. Both Mick and Keith disliked Satisfaction, and even argued against putting it out it at all. It was the other three guys and their manager who insisted. To this day, Keith still thinks it's weak.

There are always going to be disagreements in bands. I happen to love Ob-La-Di,  but it is, admittedly, a very slight song, lyricly. And I can definitely see how one would get mighty sick of it after 30 or 40 takes.

I think that part of John's dissatisfaction with some of those Paul songs may come from him being impatient in the studio. John could barely stand to do multiple takes of his OWN songs, so you can imagine how he felt when Mr Perfectionist ran the guys through the motions for 40 takes on a tune he wasn't nuts about in the first place. Especially with his new girlfriend, the uber-hip New York avant-garde artist listening in.

Interesting. I've never liked the song finding it to be quite a boring track thats been moulded into something we are all meant to like. The riff is dull as hell, the musical backing never gets going, the lyrics are ordinary and the vocals leave a lot to be desired. Far far better material in the Stones catalogue.

in some bootlegs from the get back sessions John can be heard singin obladi with great fun!

I remember George Martin speaking about 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da' in the Early 80's how when they were working hard on it (the 'Anthology' version took DAYS I believe) and, were having "a bit of difficulty with it", John who'd just walked in "slightly stoned" had said "What's this Rubbish you're working on?"  According to George Martin, John went directly over to the House Piano and said "OK then, 1, 2, 3, 4!"  What immediately transpired was the version that made the 'White Album'.  John's disdain is EXACTLY what the song needed, the 'Anthology' version belongs in the same bin as 'Los Paranois', 'Teddy Boy' & 'Junk', the Heavy Piano is what drives the track and makes this The Beatles' Classic that it is...:-)
