Toast And Marmalade For Tea - Tin Tin

OK, more one-hit wonders: This Australian duo (Steve Kipner and Steve Groves) took its name from a Belgian crime-fighting cartoon character. Their ethereal hit was penned by Groves, reaching #20 in '71. The distorted sublime keyboard sound was obtained when the recording engineer accidentally leaned on the tape machine. Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Kung Fu Fightin' " by Carl Douglas. Dang, I'm SO sorry - I just don't know what came over me! BAD song - one of the worst ever - I promise I'll be better next time (maybe a little Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs?! - NOT!!!)
