Marmalade - Reflections Of My Life on The Very Best Of The Marmalade Album (1969)
"Reflections of My Life" was a 1969/1970 hit single for the Scottish band, The Marmalade. It was written by their lead guitarist Junior Campbell, and singer Dean Ford (born Thomas McAleese). Released in late 1969, it was the band's first release on Decca following an earlier spell at CBS.

The song went on to chart worldwide, reaching number three in the UK in 1969, number 10 in the US in 1970 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number seven on the Cash Box Top 100. Initial sales were significant in both countries, and the one million mark was reported in November 1971, when the group was presented with a gold disc for global sales. The track featured a lead vocal by Ford backed by vocal harmonies, and included a reverse tape guitar solo by Campbell.

"Reflections of My Life" has produced sales of over two million units. In 1998 the writers were awarded a Special Citation of Achievement by the BMI for attaining radio broadcast performances in excess of one million in the US alone.

  1. I first heard this song not too long ago on an oldies station and fell in love with the melody. Then when I looked up the words, I was even more turned on to it. I love the chorus especially.

  3. Although this song was released November 14, 1969, I still consider it part of the best years of my life, the 70's! If I could snap my fingers and bring the 70's into the present, but leave our loved ones here with it, I would! No Internet, no cell phones, no Al-Qaeda, no ISIS, no refugee's, no Illegals, no Black lives matter and no hatred for ones beliefs or religion ;)
