"Can't You Hear My Heartbeat" by Herman's Hermits.

OK, more British Invasion: John Shakespeare and Ken Hawker formed a skiffle band in Birmingham in the late 50's named LVI. They subsequently moved to London and composed under the pseudonyms John Carter and Ken Lewis. They wrote a minor UK hit for Goldie and The Gingerbreads, a cover of which was a #1 US hit in '65 for Herman's Hermits (one of 3 Top 3 hits for them that year).

Yesterday's answer: "Don't Give Up On Us (Baby)" by David Soul. Doggone it, I liked that song (in my ultra-cool powder blue double-knit polyester leisure suit)!
"Soul recorded a new version of the song in 2004, allegedly after being embarrassed when hearing it by chance in an elevator as sung by Owen Wilson in the film version of Starsky and Hutch."
