"Love (Can Make You Happy)" by Mercy.

OK, more one-hit wonders: This Tampa, FL group's only hit came in '69 with a Jack Sigler, Jr. composition. The ensemble formed while the members were still attending Brandon High. It peaked at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 and on Adult Contemporary. Over a million copies sold in 4 months; RIAA Certified Gold. Featured on the "Fireball Jungle" soundtrack (Lon Chaney's last movie). Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "A Thousand Miles Away" by the Heartbeats and "Daddy's Home" by Shep and The Limelites.
I love the "ra-ta-ta-tat" harmony chorus on "Daddy's Home". The girlfriend literally did move 1,000 miles away.
