Thanks!

For some reason, I think of this clip whenever I think of The Admiral and vice versa

I like this song a lot, but only the Fatboy Slim remix. When I heard the original, I was dismayed. "Why is it so slow?"

Almost as good as when Walker gets show right after proposing.

Ackbar supercedes any thread topics, but to be fair, back on topic:

"Tender Love" - Force MD's

They actually had a few hits. Now what really is:

The Bureau "Only for Sheep" (bonus points if you know the link )

I've never heard the remix...I'll have to check it out, but not if it's going to ruin the original for me :torn:

Penultimate means next to last, but, this is not the time or place to discuss that.

But, Penultimate reminds me of my favorite name, Uther Pendragon, which is the name I'm going to use the next time I hit on a woman, which will be never, but still.

Tubthumping by Chumbawumba?

Uther Pendragon is nearly as badass as Lando Calrissian, but not quite.

Is it "Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba?

"I get knocked down! But I get up again! blah blah blah never gonna bring me down!"

Ha! Cross-posting!

The only Bran Van 3000 song I ever heard was "Drinking in LA" on the soundtrack to the chick flick ... um ... "Playing By Heart"? I think?

Did they ever have a hit? That's the only time I'd ever heard of them. Good song, though.

Was waiting for this, and, was debating between my earlier Coldplay joke or going the Radiohead route.

Nice. Now, put on your sweater vest.

It's almost true through, Creep is their only real major hit, at least in the US.

Then my beloved Catherine Wheel belong here, "Black Metallic" was their only hit, and even that was not much of a hit on the charts...but they made 3 strong albums and a 4th that's almost as good as those 3...and a 5th I prefer not to think about.

But, the spirit of this thread is likely bands that had one song, out of nowhere, that charted, then disappeared. At least that's what I think it is.
