Default Forgot and act's name - 70s and 80s music fans help!

Hi everyone!
I identified a song and its performer one day by googling a part of the lyrics I managed to write down after hearing it on the radio... now i forgot completely, and I really need it! What I DO remember:

- 70s - maybe early 80s sound - funky, melodic, many chord progressions
- female vocalist
- it was a band, the name was comprised of TWO LAST NAMES : the first one was the - girl singer's last name, the other - a guy's last name
- the girl played the piano

I'd be really grateful if you could help!

Well... actually it is for one of them: Toni Tennille. I never took her seriously until I noticed her credited as a vocalist on Pink Floyd's The Wall album. Okay... I still don't take her seriously, but at least she did ONE cool thing.

Your description made me think of "Love Will Keep Us Together" instantly.

I wasted hours trying to track this down. I even typed some act i thought might be from the same era/genre into youtube and hoped they would pop up in the related videos somehow. then as soon as I remembered the ledge, I was sure someone here would know

just watched a live perf of the song you mentioned. you can almost tell the condition of toni tennille's gums when she sings.

For heaven's sake, whatever you do... do NOT say "Captain Dragon" three times into your mirror on Halloween. Take it from me. You won't die or anything, but... Good God.
