Ok I'll add but first I have to say as qa devoted Clash fan (the only band that matters) ANY Clash spin off band is automatically cool, so B.A.D. are not one hit wonders. Besides I do belive that The Globe was also released. SO whatever. Anyway if you like them check out the songs: Medicine Man, Applecart and E=MC2

But anyway:
The Way: Fast Ball
Your Emergency's About to End: Possum Dixon
I'm Too Sexy: RSF (sorry I think I had to repeat it)
The Proclaimers: 500 miles
I Could Never Be Your Woman: White Town
That's all I can think of now that you didn't put. I'll maybe post more later as they occur to me...

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - "Relax"......who would have guessed that during the Regan era, a band could have the entire country singing the most homoerotic song ever recorded?

Jesus Jones - "Right Here, Right Now"....... perfect song for the moment in time it was released in

EMF - "Unbelieveable"......From the beginning "OH!" and pounding piano, this song has you hooked

OK, NKOTB did NOT have just one hit. I only know this because before I became a die-hard U2 fan, I was a crazed NKOTB fan. They had "Step by Step" and "Hangin' Tough" and "Cover Girl" and "Popsicle".

That's what I was gonna reply with!

And, yes, NKOTB were definitely not one-hit wonders...I adored them when I was little, and they had tons of hits!

I liked that one song Harvey Danger had... Paranoia paranoia every one is out to get meeeee. I think it was called flag-pole sitta.


btw B.A.D. had 2 hits actually.

I once had somebody refer to U2 as "those one-hit wonders who did the Batman song".

I'm so glad others are saying NKOTB was no a one-hit wonder. It makes me feel less embarassed about my 13-year-old obsession.

As for the one-hit wonders above, I agree with all of them and include:

I Want Candy- Bow Wow Wow
Jenny [867-5309]- Tommy Tutone [my name is Jenny so I'm particularly attached to that song and am always tempted to give loser guys that hit on me at a bar that number and see if they pick up on it]

Taco - Puttin on the Ritz

Sad, it wasn't even an original song.

As for the Sneaker Pimps, I heard a new song on the radio Sunday. They have changed their style, and a new album will be released...I actually liked the song.
