One hit wonders

Someone (not me of course) really needs to go through this thread and produce a list. There are so many songs posted that have been posted previously.

I'm transported back to being 14 with that one, ^^^ Jim :)

That's kind of the point of the thread, isn't it? These are songs that occupy a specific, fleeting moment in time, and so we associate them with whatever was in our lives at that moment.

Well, for songs I posted I've tried to include the artist and song title, so that anyone could search the thread and avoid duplicating what was already posted. But dups are not per se bad - as jmw points out, hearing one of these can bring back memories. So post it, and tell us about it.

Always liked this song, and the movie.
