This week sees Switzerland chart one of its few US hits. Double (pronounced with an accent over the “e”) was the duo of Kurt Maloo and Felix Haug. Together with a variety of studio musicians, they recorded light jazz-pop in the vein of Sade. Their second album, Blue, featured their biggest hit.
This week the charming ballad The Captain of Her Heart debuted at #95. It eased up the charts, peaking at #16 in September. Double recorded one more album, but never hit the US charts again, becoming a rare true One Hit Wonder. They were also the first Swiss act to break into the Top 40 and remain the highest charting act from that country on the Hot 100.
