Jigsaw is a British pop band fronted by Clive Scott and Des Dyer which had a string of minor hits throughout the mid and late 1970s. This song was their biggest hit, and became so unexpectedly. It was the theme song to the motion picture The Man From Hong Kong (also known as The Dragon Flies), which is a martial arts espionage film that combined elements from James Bond and Bruce Lee movies. The film was only a middling success, but the song caught on with audiences in Japan and Europe, and then became a significant hit in the United States, as well. The song spent 3 years on the Japanese chart and sold all together 13 million copies worldwide. Jigsaw had one more minor hit in the United States with "Love Fire" (#30 in 1976), and split up in 1983. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
As well as being a Top 40 hit in the UK and the US, "Sky High" was a Top 10 hit in Australia, reaching #3 in the Top 40 chart in late 1975. (thanks, Graham - Windsor, Australia)
