"Feelings" by Morris Albert.

OK, more 70's one-hit wonders (spare my life, please!): Brazilian singer/songwriter Mauricio Alberto Kaisermann penned and recorded this sappy romantic ballad in '74. It peaked at #6 Pop and #2 Adult Contemporary in '75. Grammy-nominated in '76 for Song Of The Year and Best New Artist. French composer Loulou Gaste sued him for plagiarizing his '56 "Pour Toi" and won 88% of royalties. A perennial inclusion in "Worst Songs Ever" lists, it also figures among Rhino Records' "70's Party Killers". Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Pink Shoelaces" by Dodie Stevens.
