The tune was a novelty song and was quickly forgotten, but Tanega continued recording folk and folk pop material, including an album for RCA Records after moving to the United Kingdom in the 1970s. When she returned to the U.S., she got her MFA in painting and began teaching art in Claremont, California. She also began working with ceramic percussion instruments, and recorded with Brian and Amanda Ransom. She was also a member of world music ensemble Hybrid Vigor. During the late 1960s/early 1970s Tanega had a romantic relationship with British singer Dusty Springfield.
Tanega wrote the lyrics to various songs, that Springfield recorded during this time ("No Stranger Am I", "Earthbound Gypsy", "Midnight Sounds", "The Colour of Your Eyes", "Morning (Bom Dia)", "Go My Love") and they remained friends until Springfield's death in 1999.
