Awesome album. My fave too. Although Gran Turismo was also quite good.

Gary Glenn Doyle - "how i killed a man and proceeded to eat his bloody carcus with a spork"

never went far on mainstream charts, but it shook the underground cashba if you know what i mean

vertical horizen had that other song too..."you're a god"...wasn't that popular too?

i think everoyne mentioned the ones i was going to say already

i was just thinking about that dishwalla song yesterday when i was waiting for a bus...this blue car went by about 6 times...i used to like that song a lot...

marcy playground tried to put out a new album a few years later...i forgot the name of the song, but it was played a lot on this station in vermont i used to listen to...but still a one hit wonder

the new radicals broke up after "you only get what you give" was released. very much one hit wonders.

everclear had a song called "one hit wonder"

why is it that this stuff still sounds better to me now than the stuff on the radio currently??

I don't recall the Verve ever getting a US hit other than 'bittersweet symphony'. they had drugs don't work and lucky man in the uk, though. yes, it's a terrible label to have, but it's a great song from an excellent album.

and I have to admit my secret love fro Nicki French's cover of 'total eclipse of the heart'.

i really liked the new radicals.

the verve a one-hit wonder? hmm. well i guess if they only had one "hit" per se, but i dunno if i would consider them in that category.

i kinda liked natalie imbruglia (or however you spell her name) it was just good fun to be able to sing "i'm lying naked on the floor" at the top of your lungs.

no i would definately not call the verve a one hit wonder. but i can see your point being as the rest of their songs didn't get much airplay in the states. lucky man and sonnet made it on coundowns in canada but i think canadian charts tend to have more british bands on them then the american ones.

my favorite one has to be the groove is in the heart. i still love that song.

Actually there are a lot of people like the Verve that only had one "hit" but their collective work is very good and they are looked at as a good, if not great artist with staying power.

Others in that category?

Sinead O'Connor
Greatful Dead
Jimmy Hendrix
there are many other examples if i had a better memory

Radiohead, 'Creep'?????? That's a joke, right?

Bear, good choice of song, but not quite as great IMO as Neil Diamond's 1997 hit 'I killed a drifter to get an erection'.

"Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger was good.

So what ever happened to that Radiohead band? Are they still around?

Thanks, brettig. Indeed, OMC sang "How Bizarre."

Verve Pipe - "The Freshmen"

I still like that song.

Actually, I still like the majority of the songs that have been mentioned here....
