"Reflections of My Life" - The Marmalade - Cover - feat. Nicole Atkins

  • Added:  9 months ago
  • Nicole Atkins and I were just goofing around and here ya go. She has a new album coming out. Check her website for details.

    James Abercrombie is the MAN behind the camera.
    Tim DeLaney is the mic placer & mix master.
    Big Mike Geier played harmonica. (He was just out of frame.)

    "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. And I love it.

    Love this song. Takes me back to the past when life was a lot less stressful. I can have that moment of peace while listening to you. Thank you Puddles. Keep posting.

    There needs to be some way to mark "LOVE" for songs like this on YouTube.

    I don't really like the original that much, but I can't listen to this version enough. It is perfect. Adding Nicole to the mix and making it a duet.... simply perfect.

    Puddles! Please figure out a way to put this up for purchase on iTunes as well. I truly would love to add this to the soundtrack of my life!

    OMG Puddles, your voice, such beautiful voice and what range-you can sing pretty much various genre and your versionsin my ears always sounds so much better. I thank you for performing at AGT otherwise I wouldn't have found you. You have quite a gift God Bless You for sharing it to us! Good Luck at AGT and I am praying that you'll win it all!

    I think I just watched a video of you performing at a "goobye" party. After reading the comments,I realized what the party was about. I know that being on tv and entertaining your fans is great, but what you did for that women and her family is unbelievable. When you were singing to her and you put your crown on her head, I lost it. You did something that is beyond words.....

    For more than 5 years I have lost the will to sing or listen to music, but you Sir, are a true inspiration. I thought I had lost the ability to sing, but after listening to you for a while, the ability is still there and I sing, and it's still beautiful...Thank you for your varied voice control. It's something that I have always been able to do, and I am enjoying filling my life again (though privately) with soulful tunes, I'm even returning to my opera voice, which is a day time thing (hoping everyones at work in the street...lol)...Love your eclectric songs...Danny Boy, O Holy Night and Royals....brilliant

    This is so ridiculously adorable. "Me neither". BWahahaaa! I especially love how she keeps trying to get him to sing the *even-higher* part, and he's like "well -- song's over".
    If you have nits to pick, then there's something wrong with you, but that's okay -- there's something wrong with each of us. I'm just here to help you realize that %-)

    I've just binged watched everything you appear in here on youtube over the last couple of days. You really are remarkable in your Puddles act and the entire setting. Your personality and of course your voice. That combination is just extremely good and unique. Also you clearly have great humor :)

    I hope you make enough money from this so that you don't have to do anything else and that you'll never stop. Please please keep on going.

    Also I was wondering if you could try a song by Queen?
