One hit wonders

Recommended Posts

Driving this weekend one of the true one-hit wonders from my youth came on. Got me thinking we might have fun with a thread of them.

This one fits I think: #1 in US/UK (I think top 10 may be good enough), the group never charted in the top 100 again (top 50?).

And from 1965 - banned in many places, but still hit #1 in the US in a few short weeks

In the UK they were far from one hit wonders unfortunately. That one wasn't even their biggest hit!

I always think of Cutting Crew - I just died in your arms tonight . As I went to school with Nick Ede .

For a while when I was a kid, all I wanted was a Chevy Van.

There are so many great one hit wonders, makes you think why they could never repeat it. Always loved this.

Arguably the greatest one hit wonder ever

A bold claim, but a great claim.

I love Spirit in the sky.

However I would rate this even higher:
