Graham, I think you're getting your quiz threads mixed up - this one's always been "name that tune".
But while I'm on.....only group I can think of that fits part of your clue is DEXYS MIDNIGHT RUNNERS

It's strange, I thought this would have gone in 5 minutes.
This song won a Grammy in the 70s and again in the 90s with a different version.

The link with the 90s suggests KILLING ME SOFTLY by the Fugees , the 70s version by Roberta Flack was called KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONG which I'd dismissed as inappropriate due to the wrong murder weapon :lol:

Abacab it is Phil!
Bern, think it's one of those that you might "pronounce" differently in your head when reading a list quickly so you could easily overlook it.
