Night Music: Zager and Evans, “The Candy Machine”

It never occurred to me (until tonight) to dig deep in the oeuvre of Zager and Evans, who are known almost entirely for their No. 1 hit song in 1969, In the Year 2525. Zager and Evans are famous for being one of the only bands to have a No. 1 and never having another charting single.

But Zager and Evans did not just disappear. And they were not forgotten. This song was apparently used in a movie that had Jack Black in it. And a YouTube commenter said this:

So Zager and Evans are immortal for smart dancing.
