Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

The band “Mercy Me” has a running gag on their YouTube channel called “The Cover Tune Grab Bag,” in which they do fun covers of popular songs. Many of the videos look like they are shot backstage with the guys just goofing around. In any case, it’s pretty entertaining to see the band let their proverbial hair down.

On Sunday, they posted what is probably my favorite video to date: a cover of the Beatles’ “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.” Watch above. If you want to see more, their YouTube channel is here.

    Good to see something that’s not about Rob Bell. Thanks, Denny

    Sure this is entertaining. Very light-hearted and fun, the music is good and great to listen to. So was the enemy when he whispered into Eve’s ear. That, to me, is what’s most concerning.

    Steve–well put. Just the other day, I caught my wife tapping her foot–I might add that her ankle was salaciously exposed–to the beat of an Englebert Humperdinck tune. You can imagine my horror. And since I use the slippery slope argument as my justification to abstain from anything that looks like sin, no matter how thickly veiled in fun or ostensibly light-hearted, I just remember that the next thing you know, we’ll all be shooting up heroin. Thanks for keeping us in line.
