Zager and Evans were one hit wonders as recording artists who had a number one hit and then never had another chart single. They did this in both the U.S. and UK. As of 2019, they are the only artists ever to have a chart-topping #1 hit on both sides of the Atlantic and never have another chart single in Billboard or in the UK for the rest of their career.
