For some musicians, lightning only struck once when it came to hit records. What are some of your favorite songs by singers/bands who could be classified as one hit wonders?
I’ve always liked this fun tune and recall playing it a lot as a kid because my older brother had the single.
For purposes of this thread, I guess we should stick to the American music charts (USA! USA!). I know this Dutch duo had additional hits in their homeland and had a Top Ten hit in the UK with “I See a Star”, but the above song is the only thing they will be remembered for here in the US.
Here’s a great song that became a one-hit wonder from a movie about a one-hit wonder, the Wonders (or Oneders). “That Thing You Do” was actually the winning entry for the movie written by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, which many might think was a one-hit wonder themselves (Stacy’s Mom) but they put out some great albums over a long career. Schlesinger unfortunately died during the pandemic. Schlesinger and Mike Viola sang for the varous recordings.
