One-hit Wonders

Recommended Posts

Currently, they're gathering dust. I'm letting them age to perfection, don't you know? :huh:
I think that's a shame, keeping that sexy voice all to yourself.

Ram Jam - Black Betty

Spin Doctors - Two Princes

And the band that defined the term "one hit wonder," The Wonders - That Thing You Do

Maybe even Blind Melon ... someone help me out here, the video was the girl in the Bumble-Bee suit.

Nice try!

Spin Doctors also had a hit with "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" so not really a one-hit wonder.

Wasn't "pocketful of kryptonite" one too?

"No Rain", not to be confused with "Purple Rain". And while it was actually FOW, who wants to equate the syrupy pop in "That Thing You Do" with the band that gave us "Stacy's Mom"?

Edited to add- Who can forget Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky"?

Shalom,

would Red Rubber Ball by the Cyrkle count?

I've always liked that lil tune :)

I guess it would depend on what counts as a hit? If we count top 10 then they had one if we count top 20 they had 2.

I've always liked "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe" by Whale.

Hmmm, cool. I thought it may have been. I used to own the CD, actually.

Beats me. Even if it was, I think they don't qualify as a One-Hit Wonder.

"Life Is A Highway" was originally a hit by Tom Cochrane...who also had many other hits.

The Proclaimers in a one-hit wonder, for sure!

Yep, that would count.

How about:

"Life's Been Good" - Joe Walsh

"Rocky Mountain Way" was a much better song...(imo)

peace

What about "Walk Away" or "Turn to Stone"or "Funk #49"... Joe is nowhere near a one hit wonder.
