omg you are taking us back in time! Terrence Trent Darby was supposed to be the next big thing, and Golden Earring, can remember the videos, think they were from Holland? Often think about what it must be like for those people, they think they are on top of the world, they have a hit record, they make videos, do appearances, sign autographs, get bookings...and the next year they are back to being nobody. You realize how few actually make it to have lifelong performing careers. How about that Luft Ballon group from Germany, 99 Luft balloons. Remember the other one, you're my obcession, with the blond chick, we saw that video about 100x a day on MTV, then they fell off the face of the earth. VH1 keeps us up-to-date on all of these. Where's Paul Young?

Have to edit, that is hysterical, the Macarena up there! It was like the third listen to that, and seeing anybody doing that dance, you wanted to scream.

OLP are certainly not one hit wonders...they have had more than one hit in Canada (although some were not noticed in the US) with most notably, Superman's Dead, Clumsy, One Man Army, Is Anybody Home?, Life, etc.

Here is another one hit wonder I just thought of, this song is hilarious - "Don't You Want Me" by Human League!

"You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met youuu...." lol

HAve you been living uncer a rock?

Naveed, Is Anybody Home, One Man Army, Theif, Life, Spirtual Machines, Automatic Flowers, Clumsy, etc, etc...I'd hardly call them one hit wonders.

Although I may be somewhat biased as I live in Canada, where they're played all the time...


How 'bout that movie--"That thing you do" where their name was the "One-ders"

Kina--Girl from the gutter
Bush X--more like 2 hit wonders
Edwin-Alive
Eden's Crush--Get over yourself
Edwin Mccain--I'll be (love's suicide)
Willa Ford--I wanna be bad

The band was called "Nena" (=name of the female singer).

Another one hit wonder I really loved when I was - ehm - young: Howzat by Sherbet (don't know if it's spelled right...)

HAHAHAHAHAHA
Almost as silly as you are for actually knowing that Terence Trent D'Arby had more than one hit. kidding kidding. Of course they had more than one hit, but in the US Terence went as quickly as he came.

Try to take into consideration that we're getting a global view here, so what was a one hit wonder band in the States isn't necessarily true for the UK or the rest of Europe or Australia.

You're right about Dire Straits though. They had a string of hits - Romeo and Juliet and Roller Girl to name a couple, not to mention the slew of well received songs from Brothers In Arms in the 1980's that actually made it's way onto fickle American radios. <--- a feat in itself. Not to mention that Money For Nothing video that was high tech in the computer graphics for the time that wowed audiences.

As for Jesus Jones, I think most people *know* it was more than one guy supposedly named 'Jesus Jones' (Ian and Mike, plus supporting musicians I think...) I just think with a band name that represents a singular entity/name, it's easy to get caught up in referring to the band as a one man show.

LMAO!! Don't forget "I'll Remember" sung by Mr. Joseph McCintyre. He was my favorite!

Did that mean your obsession lasted 13 years, or it happened when you were 13?

Ok, guys, guys. The one hit wonder of all time has got to be

I seen 3rd Eye Blind listed 2 times, where were you people back in 97 when the radio played about 5 diff songs of theirs?

Then in 99 they had another song that was off their last album that was on the radio a lot and had a video that was kind of an homage to Dancin With Myself.
