"Joy" by Apollo 100.

OK, more 70's one-hit wonders: The 10th section of J. S. Bach's Advent cantata "Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben" was the inspiration for this bouncy '72 #6 hit for a British studio-based instrumental ensemble. The melody line was actually copied from a '70 recording by the band Jigsaw. Part of the "Boogie Nights" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" soundtracks. Title? Group?

Yesterday's answer: "I'll Follow The Sun" bt The Beatles. The Macca/Lennon harmonies in the chorus have to be one of my all-time Beatles faves.
