I think in the States they were. I know Marc Almond had other albums and whatnot, but I think Tainted Love was pretty much it for them over here.

I was horrified to see Soft Cell play on NBC's Today Show (yes they showed that in Australia) on some One Hit Wonders special a couple of years ago, followed by the Knack doing "My Sharona".

And lemme tell you, the singer out of the Knack ain't improved much over the years

Back on track:

Axel F, the theme to Beverly Hills Cop (and I will kill the next person who has that as their ringtone, mark my words... )

I think we're all forgetting the best one hit wonder of all time
I'm too sexy by Right Said Fred.
That video, those bald heads, too sexy for their cats, hmmmmm


We will all forget that they also had a minor hit with Deeply Dippy.
