What are the odds on this- two back to back #1 hits by the same songwriters- Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan wrote “My Eyes Adored You” and “Lady Marmalade.” The song which has been covered over the years by a number of artists is best remembered for it’s suggestive French chorus Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)?”, which translates into English as “Do you want to sleep with me (tonight)?” The song would go to #1 again- with a version by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink and Lil Kim. It was the 9th song to go to #1 by two different musical acts.
