1- OB-LA-DI OB-LA-DA
2- CADENAS (CHAINS)
The Marmalade is a band remembered for covering "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da", a song by Paul McCartney that came from the phrase, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, that means "life goes on," that Paul heard by a man named Jimmy Anonmuogharan Scott Emuakpor, a Nigerian congo player who played in a group known as Bad Manners.
THE MARMALADE were signed to Apple Publishing. One of his songs "I See the Rain" is derivative of that loveable drone-fuzz sound made famous by The Beatles' "Rain" and "If I Needed Someone".
McCartney wanted "Ob la di, Ob la da" released also as a single, but Lennon hated it and refused to do it. Consequently, this Scottish group recorded it and had a number one hit in late '68.
By the way, in Spain the Paul's desire was a reality, and "Ob la di, Ob la da" was released as a single.
