I guess there's lots of people who disdain Paul's granny shit music. Personally, I love it! And my favorite of them would probably be either Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da or Baby's Request! What do you guys think of Paul's granny shit music?

I personally love Paul's "granny shit" music. It always tells a really great story!

It depends on the song for me. It's good clean pop music that puts a smile on the face.

Let's see, I hate Ob La Di, I somewhat accept Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Honey Pie is good, and I absolutely love Your Mother Should Know.

If there was a song that split the Beatles, it was Obladi.

I don't think it was the song so much as Paul's obsession with getting it just perfect. That probably would get a little tiring, especially for George, who could barely get John and Paul to spend 5 minutes on his songs. I can see how that would be annoying.

I love Paul's "granny" music! The only song I don't really dig is "Honey Pie," which is just too cheesy for me. But I love "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," Maxwell's Silver Hammer," and "Your Mother Should Know."  

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I can't stand Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da and Maxwell, but Your Mother Should Know is fantastic. Playing that song full volume, you can't help but singalong. And I like the guitar in Honey Pie.

 

17, Paul agrees.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Really, becuase I'd say it'd be What's The New Mary Jane! Really though, they weren't split by a song I shouldn't think?

I personally love "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Maxwell's", "Honey Pie", and "Your Mother Should Know." Are there any other songs that would be considered "granny music"? Possibly, "For No One". They were some of my favorite McCartney compositions.

John called it "Granny music" and Paul called it "fruity old songs" which makes me laugh. Anyway, I love his "granny shit". Of course I love all that everyone has posted here, but I think "Martha My Dear" is 1930s-esque a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I looooooove "Martha My Dear" mainly because Martha is one of the cutest dogs that I have ever seen. Paul treated Martha like a human sometimes, though. I enjoyed those songs, though.

They did do just shy of 100 takes of Not Guilty.

Martha My Dear should not be grouped in with the Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, and For No One definitely shouldn't. I group in songs children's songs like All Together Now and Yellow Submarine with the "granny shit" like Honey Pie and Ob-La-Di.

"For No One" has a different element to it than most of John's songs that year. That's why it would be considered it, to a certain element though. But not completely like "When I'm Sixty-Four", which he started writing when he was like fourteen, if I am correct. It's just, I would group "For No One" because it is has...a softer sound, I guess, than, say, "Tomorrow Never Knows".

I know. (And when I'm referring to he in the Sixty-Four comment, I know that it's a Paul song, too.) I'm saying that's why I would put it in the "granny" category, since John had songs like "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "I'm Only Sleeping" out that year. Paul had "Here, There And Everywhere" along with "For No One". They were completely different.

Is "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" one of John's granny songs?
