Always found that fascinating as well. I'd say it's much more common with artists from other countries such as Dan Hill, who had several other Canadian hits. The Irish Rovers/Rovers would be another Canadian example, with The Unicorn and Wasn't That A Party. A British example would be Murray Head with Superstar and One Night In Bangkok, although I just checked Wiki and he didn't have any other hits in the UK in between those ones either. |
