Reflections Of My Life

Reflections eh?..........I sometimes think how different life would be if we all suffered instant memory loss...

Formed in the early 60's in the East End of Glasgow, Marmalade were the first band from Scotland to reach number 1 in the UK charts with their cover version of The Beatles Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da. They appeared on Top of the Pops wearing kilts.

This song reached number 3 in the UK in 1969 and number 10 in the US and featured a backwards guitar solo and some pretty strong vocals from Dean Ford. Harmonies are nice too. Given that it's over forty years old I think it's stood the test of time pretty well. What do you think?
