    Quick Question: one hit wonders

    The rules? In order to post here, you must know the album where the song was included, unless it was released as a single. But you can post your favorite(s) who only had less-than-15-minutes of song time fame. Or, surprise us by listing (gasp! ) ANOTHER song they made!

    Such as:

    Matthew Wilder
    Song: "Break My Stride."

    Album: I Don't Speak the Language.

    Since this will stay online forever (unless the thread gets deleted), we will give them MORE than 15 minutes to be famous. Wow...
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    I've been listening to "Lovefool" by The Cardigans a lot lately (from the album First Band on the Moon, an album that had a bizzare, yet cool, cover of "Iron Man"). I've always liked the song for some reason. I should go look for that album...
    Pretty funny seeing Jim sing it on the Office the other night.

    A lot of one hit wonders out there. Probably my favorite so far is:

    Norman Greenbaum - Spirit in the sky. Love that tune.

    And you can stretch the definition of ONE-hit wonder, because there are a few bands/singers who had moderate success or another tune after their big hit, too, such as...

    Corey Hart

    Song: "Never Surrender." (much better song than "Sunglasses at Night," but too serious and not as cheesy as that one)

    Album: Boy in the Box (stupid title, IMHO)

    Favorite all-time 1HW... hmmm... how 'bout:

    Wall of Voodoo

    Song: "Mexican Radio."

    Album: (checked online cheater! ) Call of the West

    Maybe?

    I think my favorite one-hit wonder is Jimi Hendrix.

    I'm also fond of Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the Grateful Dead.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    FALCO?!

    Letters to Cleo
    Song: "Here and Now"
    Album: "Aurora Gory Alice"

    As for listing another song by them, I could go on for days since they continue to be a favorite of mine. And Kay Hanley is smokin'.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.
