They used to play that song on the radio every 10 mins the summer it came out. Sheesh. I liked it though.....I still do.....

'Rump Shaker' by Tag Team. Ma Bell knows what I'm talkin' about.

You're damn right.

Only I'm pretty sure Wrecks-N-Effect sang Rump Shaker. Don't make me rap the whole song right here and now, because I will do it!

Some other booty-shakin' one-hit wonders:
Daisy Dukes
The Dip
C'mon Ride the Train - Quad City DJs
Whoomp! There It Is! - Tag Team
Knockin' Boots - Candyman

Icehouse - 'Electric Blue'

I don't know whether or not to be proud or ashamed! I grew up in such a small town (there were 12 kids in my graduating class), so I had lots of free time. Then again, it's amazing I ever heard anything that wasn't country music.

Here are a few other great ones from that wonderful source for one hit wonders, the MTV Party to Go CD Collection!

Freak Like Me - Adina Howard
This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan
Missing - Everything But the Girl
Set U Free - Planet Soul (I loved dancing to this in clubs)
Feels Good - Tony! Toni! Tone!
Don't Wanna Fall in Love - Jane Child

And a really good song...not sure if I'll get the title exactly right:
Never Met a Girl Like You Before - Edwyn Collins

You got Icehouse??? Tres excellent. They had a bunch of other hits over here, but that was probably their biggest, internationally too it would seem. It was kinda sad cos at the time, Icehouse were seen as the poor man's INXS, and INXS at that time were seen as the poor man's U2.
You want to check out a song called Love In Motion by Icehouse with/feat. Chrissie Amphlett. Its very, I dunno, hard to describe really. A little bit lounge lizard.
Excellent song, underrated terribly I think.

Holy cow, I remember hearing that song all the time when I was younger.

'Tis a good song, though.

You had 12 kids in your graduating class?

Wow.

I like the video for that song-goes backwards from death to birth. Very interesting.

That kind of music is very hypnotic.

Ah yes, a song who's yelling would make Tarzan proud.



What was the other song with the Tarzan yell in it? I remember there was some type of mouth wash commercial that used the song also. If someone can figure the song out from my crappy description, I will be very impressed.

Damn! I could sing it for you, but I have no idea what it's called.

Anyway, I'd call Enigma a two-hit wonder. First with "Sadeness Part I" and then "Return to Innocence." Their first album was so wonderful to listen to, but of course, someone stole mine. Loved Return to Innocence as well.

And at 12 kids, my graduating class was pretty big. That year's freshman class had 5 kids.
