DASH CROFTS. Seals and Ccrofts' 3 #6 hits were Summer Breeze, Diamond Girl, and Get Closer

Pretty tricky clue writing by the meister, there. I've never heard Mr. Seals referred to as anything but James. And while I don't know individual chart positions of hits, I thought Your Mama Don't Dance, My Music, and some combination of House at Pooh Corner or Thinking of You would have done it.

I bow.
Had to look this up, but "Your Mama" peaked at #4, "My Music" at #16, and "Thinking" at #18. Those were their only Top 40 hits.. "Pooh" never charted as a single.
