In 1976, the Starland Vocal Band had its only hit. The band, made up from two couples, namely Margot Chapman and Jon Carroll, together with Taffy and Bill Danoff. The last two had already released some albums, and sang back-up vocals on Take Me Home Country Roads from John Denver. The song is said to be named after a appetizer menu in Washington DC, but can also be interpreted in a sexual way. The songwriting was not easy: it took six months to write the song. The result was a number 1 hit in the US, number 18 in the UK. After the hit, they released no other songs. Enjoy
