Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is probably the Beatles song I’ve listened to the most number of times, mainly because it’s the only Beatles song I like to play along to with my acoustic guitar.  Anyway, as far as the topic of song fragments that really grab me — this song is a veritable cornucopia of fragments that really grab me.  There are so many, it’s almost like the entire song is just a jam-packed grab-bag of cool fragments.  Some day maybe I’ll sit down and list them all.  For now, I will cite the “ha ha ha!” parts (almost a Santa-Clausian “ho ho ho!”).

Any time the Beatles use piano in songs, especially if it’s only for a brief moment. Take, for example, Baby It’s You or In My Life . The amount of times I’ve replayed those couple seconds of those songs is insane.

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away Across The Universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me

I like the signing towards the end of While My Guitar Gently Weeps . The “Oh oh oh” part.

I think the bridge parts of Anna and This Boy really get me. I also love the part where John sings “that I, I, I, I, should never, never, never be blue!” in Ask Me Why : it’s so beautiful!

Love that part too. There’s an innocence and energy about those early songs especially.
