OMG I love STAY by Shakesperae's Sister!

Their album was pretty good actually - Hormonally Yours!!!

I loved the video for that song...it was number 1 fro 6 weeks or something wasn't it?

I also loved New Radicals and Merdith Brooks and you have to be joking with Radiohead

. Great songs.

And that "How Bizarre" song...very memorable.

How about "Barbie Girl" by Aqua? Anyone remember that one?

And "Groove Is In The Heart" kicks arse. I love that song.

RevCo is not a one hit wonder for the simple fact that that was not a hit. I don't think I have ver heard a RevCo song played on the radio (although, something tells me it would be damn funny to hear "Beers, Steers and Queers (Texas remix)" on the radio.

Texas Hoe-down
Texas Low-down
Your full of shit
destined to go down

I love Stay Cleasai! Its the song you sing along to when you are pretending you can sing


I have to go d/ling now....

I really love this thread. So many good happy tunes in here. The Proclaimers had another hit after 500 miles, not as popular and I cant recall the name of it something like "trailer for sale or rent, room to rent for 50 cents"....something something...King of the Road I think it may have been called.

The 90's was the best decade.

1) I believe the song "Please Don't Go" is the one you're refering to, and it was originally recorded by K.C. and the Sunshine Band in 1980. Perhaps you're recalling a song that sampled its chorus. If you can find who covered/sampled K.C's version, you'll find your answer.

2) My all-time favorite one-hit wonder of the 1990's is Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway". It's timeless due to its universal rock-pop beat with a bridge that knocks me to the ground.

Other favorites---->Ini Kamoze: "Here Comes the Hotstepper", Baz Luhrman (sp?): "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)", Take That: "Back For Good", Snow: "Informer", Eagle-Eye Cherry: "Save Tonight".

Ooh, that's a good one.

How about Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train"? I really like that one (and I particularly like the video-it's very interesting. Deserves more recognition, I think).

.

"Back For Good" is my favorite out of those...that's such a great song.

They released a follow up album last year.

I also really like 'Camera One'. It's about the only song of theirs I've heard that I've liked though.

A few random thoughts:

The New Radicals broke up pretty much right as their single came out. To my knowledge, they no longer exist, which is why no one has heard anything new from them.

to Snow and Eagle Eye Cherry.

I'll have to check out some more stuff by the Josh Joplin Group. I only ever heard Camera One on the radio, but I'd be willing to give their other stuff a listen.

Here's one. Does anyone remember Shake It Like a White Girl by Jesse Jaymes? I used to have the single, but someone stole it. I bet he feels like a loser now!

What about Mr. Vain by Culture Beat? Love that song.

Bad Luck by Social Distortion is another good one, imho.
