One hit wonders

Recommended Posts

A one hit wonder is classed as a band who have a hit single and then nothing charting. So many here released other tracks that did chart but just not as well known.

Again, the dangers of geography....

May have hits elsewhere

May have never been heard by anyone else anywhere, number 1 in Australia (1983 if memeory serves)

Interesting... I have all the music Marc has made, follow him daily on FB. HAs he had more hits? Nope. Has he made more brilliant music? Thankfully, yes.

I have a recent live recording in which he sings Silver Thunderbird from the debut album which also included Walking In Memphis, or as he introduces it in the show "My Greatest Hits"

Maryland wannabe AC/DC-Aerosmith hard rock band KIX finally had a hit in 1989 with their "Dream On" inspired song Don't Close Your Eyes.

Blow My Fuse (1988)

i've always loved this song

Me too but was it a hit, even in the USA?

His albums are great too.

You'll hate me but Christie's "San Bernadino" made no 7 that same year in the UK.

Yes, but it sounded exactly the same as 'Yellow River'. :P
