Song of the day: Labelle- Lady Marmalade

labelle lady marmalade

In 1974, Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan wrote a song for the band of Kenny Nolan. He recorded it with Eleventh Hour, but this was not a big success. However, LaBelle recorded it in the same year for their album Nightbirds. They released it as a single and it became a number 1 hit in the US! It would be covered many times after this, including versions by Sheila E. and Pink. At the time, Patti LaBelle, who sung the lead vocals, had no clue where the song was about. I will help you out: it’s about a prostitute. Enjoy this big disco hit:
