What about Darts?

The song "Daddy Cool + The Girl Can't Help It" was a hit for The Darts in 1977 - Sweden (alt) 3 - Dec 1977 (22 weeks), UK Gold (certified by BPI in Mar 1978), UK 6 - Nov 1977 (13 weeks), Holland 7 - Jan 1978 (9 weeks), Belgium 9 - Dec 1977 (11 weeks)

It was (only just) their second biggest hit after "The Boy From New York City" (1978).

However because it was released as a medley the title is different so its not listed here. We'll add a comment on to the page.
