11. :N correct group but I think the answer may the prequel to the title.

The answer is a direct answer to the clue.

Edit: :-doh It is from 1975 so a later single than Yesterday Once More. I'll give the point as it fits but it's not the exact answer I was looking for.

Bonus point for anyone who can get the exact answer :)
