For purely masochist reasons, I am compiling a CD of one hit wonders. To qualify the person or group must have had a big hit and was never able to achieve another hit. Ever. So for those reasons I had to toss out one note acts like Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, ICP, Color Me Bad, Faith No More (a personal favorite of mines even with all the homo-erotic-isms) since sadly they have had more then one hit. This is my way of archiving the darkest moments in our country's history. But I won't lie, many of these songs I did and still do enjoy. With headphones and listening to in the basement of course. Here is what I have so far:


Artist__________________Song
Deee-Lite...............Groove is in the Heart
Paperboy................Ditty (I LUV this song)
Billy Ray Cyrus.........Achy Breaky Heart
Right Said Fred.........I'm Too Sexy
Digable Planet..........Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)
Tag Team................Whoop There It Is
Ahmed...................Back in the Day (another fave)
Green Jelly.............3 Little Pigs (my 1st alt song)
Crash Test Dummies......MMM MMM MMM MMM
4PM.....................Sukiyaki
69 Boys.................Tootsie Roll (I still hate this)
Deep Blue Something.....Breakfast at Tiffany's
Los Del Rio.............Macarena (This was obvious)
Chumbawamba.............Tubthumping
Eifel 65................Blue (Da Ba Dee)
Lou Bega................Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of..)
Ghost Town DJ's.........My Boo
Skee-Lo.................I Wish (another personal fave)


I realize that everyone is from the 90's. Hey that is when I was really into music. 4pm Sukiyaki is so funny now since there are NO women in Japan named Sukiyaki. Which would be like someone in American naming their kid BBQ Sauce. Fucking Eifel 65. When I was boxing their song Blue use to play in the gym like 100 times straight on the radio. It made me wonder if the gym owner wanted us to start dating men on the side. I also notice I have more rap, but I actually listen to rock and metal more. I just can't think of the name for all those Nirvana wannabes from the 90's. Oh and I am also glad that a coalition was secretly formed to take Lou Bega out of play back in 1999. Thank you allied countries.

Any other bands or persons who belong in this compilation? I have these songs in my head that belong on the CD, but I don't know the name.

Actually, didn't Lou Bega also have "Tricky" and one other song go off that album? Can't remember what the other one was though.

Hmmm, didn't Petey Pablo just come out with another song? Otherwise, I always liked "Raise Up" but that could just be me. How about Rammstein? They're big in Europe, but the only hit over here was "Du Hast". White Town, "I could never be your woman". Haddaway, "What is love?". Ah, it's late. I think I'll go to bed.

Not to nitpick, but Billy Ray Cyrus had quite a few country hits. And Crash Test Dummies charted a few other songs in Canada(I loved "Afternoons & Coffeespoons").

What about Londonbeat's "I've Been Thinking About You"? Also, I can't remember the band's name, but it was some horrible rap ballad with a chorus that went "She looked like a girl from Abercrombie & Fitch."

LFO - Summer Girls

The fact that you brought this up makes me question you, Rob.

The fact that I had the answer scares me that much more. :)

That be-eth LFO. And not the good one. However, they did inexplicably have more than one hit, so they're out.

I'm Renegade Raine and I approve this message:


How the heck did a one hit wonder mix go without Sir-Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" being mentioned?

And although it wasn't a HUGE hit, Chumbawamba had "Amnesia". And Rammstein had "Sonne"...at least I saw the video played on MTV, so that's gotta mean something.

I can think of many tunes of one hit songs, but I can't remember the artist or title name. Oh wait, how about that "How Bizzare" song? I can't remember the artist name, but it was something in initials...

Hell, it will probably get more votes than the Green Party anyways.

"Paperboy" IS an awesome song, and I just re-discovered it recently. Brought back lots of memories...from when I was about 8. Yeah.

How about "Bust-a-Move" by Young MC, "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls, "Mouth" by Merril Bainbridge (quite a 1-2 punch there), "I Love You Always Forver" by Donna Lewis, "Sway" by Bic Runga, and one other song I re-discovered lately, Cathy Dennis' "Too Many Walls", though she may have had a few other hits.

Oh, and of course "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks.

Geez, that was a pansy ass songlist from me. I should probably go look at some Lita pics now to reassure myself....oh wait, that won't help much. *rimshot*

edit:
how can I forget "Steal My Sunshine" by Len and "C'mon 'n Ride It (the Train)" by Quad City Djs?

One I happened to hear on the radio today simply must be included, 4 Non Blondes "What's Up". Others that spring to mind would be Taco "Puttin' on the Ritz", Sheriff "When I'm With You", and the most obnoxious song of all time, Paul Hardcastle "Nineteen".

Proclaimers--"I Would Walk Ten Thousand Miles"
The Buggles--"Video Killed the Radio Star"

Those are the first two that immediately spring to mind when I think of one-hit wonders.

The Proclaimers only walked five hundred miles (then they walked five hundred more, just to be the man who walked a thousand miles to fall down at your door).

Some from my collection:

Geggy Tah: "Thank You"
MC 900 Ft Jesus: "If I Only Had A Brain"
Eagle-Eye Cherry: "Save Tonight"
The Rentals: "Friends of P"
Tom Tom Club: "Genius of Love"

and, though it pains me to admit it, you could probably call Matthew Sweet a one hit wonder, and therefore you MUST put "Girlfriend" in any such collection (if you grant that premise).

Oh man! I guess I have to take Billy Ray Cyrus out. The thing about him is when people think one hit wonder, his name is usually top 5 that pops in their head. I wanted to include 4-Non Blondes but I am a deeply closeted Linda Perry mark. The Rembrandt's defiantly belong here. I watched the Joey Spin off last night (pilot was funny as hell) and I was surprised they used an electro-rap like beat for the intro. I was kinda hoping they would bring the 'Brandts back again. Lord knows, they can't be busy now.

I thought Meredith had another hit besides Bitch. Damn that song still makes me think of Erin Brockavich 4 years later. Damn you advertisement marketers! You scarred me for life.

Young MC has a special place in the one hit wonder museum for wearing that shag in 1990.

I can't believe I forget LFO and remember ELP? Youse so ubeeleevabaah!

And I need to be slap for forgetting Quad City DJ. When I was a senior in high school, I got busted big time for cheating on my then girlfriend. When my other girlfriend from across town dedicated that song to me on the local radio. I came to school the next day and even the teachers and janitors where like "You're busted!"

Damn this is what's in store for all us 50 years from now? We get together with our dusty old CD format no one uses anymore, and start pumping some Baha Men, Who Let the Dogs Out? While our grandkids roll their eyes and walk away shaking their heads for us putting on the oldies again? Can you believe one day Fuck The Police by NWA will be played on the A.M. Oldies but Goodies station? Wild.

a few I thought I'd throw out there, but admittedly, am not sure are truly one-hit wonders. I'm at least fairly sure none of their other songs got radio play, ever.

Edwyn Collins - "A Girl Like You"
Rockwell - "Somebody's Watching Me"
Timex Social Club - "Rumors"

Whatever you do, don't watch MuchMusic's ONE HIT WONDER show and consider it gospel...the station continues to amaze me with how clueless they are.

You don't need to work at compiling a list of songs...all you have to do is go to HMV and pick up the Frosh albums. Nuff said.

Len's out (I think) because of "Feelin' Alright". Dunno if it did well enough to count. That and it had C.C. DeVille, I think. (Yes, I paid money for this CD. NEW.)

Geggy Tah's in, but the song was "Whoever You Are", I believe. (AMG's it) Yup. That's it. And they did another album in 2001... who knew?

I might've said Cathy Dennis, but for another song ("Touch Me (All Night Long)"), so I think she's gotta go.

I'll offer Ovis' "Regular Thang," although the CD from whence it came is really quite good.
