One hit wonders


Recommended Posts

you blokes from the other side of the pond sure do dredge up some muck ;)

sorry but it's cold dark and raining here, we don't have anything better to do


OK here's my final contribution to this thread (at least in terms of posting songs) and if JimCT thinks we've posted some muck then there's much much worse. Here's 10 of the best worst ever one hit wonders to grace the UK charts.

1. Tweets - Birdie Song No 2 1981

2. Joe Dolce Music Theatre - Shaddup You Face No 1 1981

3 Renee & Renato - Save Your Love No 1 1982

4 Fred Wedlock - The Oldest Swinger In Town No 6 1981

5. Teletubbies - Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh! No 1 1997

6. A Tribe Of Toffs - John Kettley (Is A Weatherman) No 21 1988

7. Alexei Sayle - Ullo John Got A New Motor? No 15 1984

8. Las Ketchup - The Ketchup Song (Asereje) No 1 2002

9. St Winifred's School Choir There's No-one Quite Like Grandma No 1 1980

10 Keith Harris & Orville - Orville's Song No 4 1982

I'm sure there are many more.

Although they did chart a 2d top-40 hit, I doubt anyone knows them except for this

The Cyrkle

Red Rubber Ball, 1966

written by Paul Simon (and Bruce Woodley of The Seekers)

on my tape of S&G at Tufts in 1966 he introduces it with "Here's a song I wrote. Another group recorded it before I did, and they sold half a million copies."
