Hello,

Many of the artists mentioned here are not truly One Hit Wonders as many had more than one hit (charting) single (A-ha, Crowded House, The Verve, New Radicals).
My vote for favourite One Hit Artist would be Lou Reed. Yes, he's made many great albums (and songs), but he has only charted once, with Walk On The Wild Side. So in that sense he is just a One Hit Wonder.

C ya!

Marty

Um, I'm a huge Crowded House/Neil Finn fan, and believe me there are more than 4 of us.

I like a number of one hit wonders, but I might pick The Church, whose hit was Under the Milky Way. Such a beautiful dreamy song. Then again, one hit wonder makes it sound like not only did they only have one hit (or one internationally known hit...or one hit in America...sometimes that seems like it's all that matters), but that was their only good song. I have two albums by The Church, both of which are very good, and Starfish, where Under the Milky Way comes from, is excellent top to bottom. There's a brilliant song called Reptile which I adore.

I agree with that and I also have to say that this depends on where you are.In Russia where I live David Usher may be a One Hit Wonder with his Black Black Heart but I'm told he's big in his
native Canada,so it really depends.

Another question about One Hit Wonders

Daisybean's thread gave me the idea of this one .Has it ever happened to you that you became interested in a band/singer you had never heard of (and which wasn't really well-known in your country)just because of their one and only hit which kept haunting you for so long that you finally decided you wanted to hear more of their music? And was that rewarding?

You are so right, especially about The Church. "Under the Milky Way" is such a wonderful song, but not by a long shot their only good or even great song. Starfish certainly is excellent top to bottom as are several of their others, such as Heyday ; Priest = Aura ; Hologram of Baal ; After Everything Now This ; and their brand new one, Forget Yourself . All exquisite albums.

Procol Harum also had another song called "Conquistador"...but eh, anyway...yes, "Whiter Shade Of Pale" is an awesome song. I love the music in it.

I agree with a lot of these songs being mentioned (heh, funny you're all talking about Crowded House...I heard "Don't Dream It's Over" a few minutes ago).

"Rock Me Amadeus" is a funky little tune.

As is "Pop Muzik" ("New York, London, Paris, Munich..."...yep. Fun little song). .

Was "Whip It" mentioned? I can't remember. That's a cool song, too.
