The Ventures originated the "album concept" where most

songs followed a certain theme.

Although I liked my "head banging" "glam rock" of the 80's...one song I always liked because it had a catchy beat was Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby. I always lmao at the old man yelling "Science!!" in the video.

I think that song hit # 5.

My "Take on Me" was # 3 on that list. Should have been # 1.

"I Ran" came in at # 2

And the top one was "Come on Eileen" at # 1. I do like that one too!

Play that Funky Music _ Wild Cherry.

I got to know these guys. They were from the Pittsburgh Area, and played a local club at least twice a month .

Bryan Bassett moved on, and is now touring with Foghat. When I had the pleasure of seeing him again last Oct, I reminded him of a blast from his past, mentioning the club he got his start in. It was like old home week after that, because we know a lot of the same local Musicians.

That's tough- I mean really, really tough. I especially have a hard time qualifying a lot of otherwise obvious choices because even if an artist only has one chart-topper, if they have other songs I like I tend not to think of them as a one-hit-wonder. Artists like 13th Floor Elevators or Edwin Starr, for example. If I really had to choose, I'd go with Ben E. King- Stand By Me. Here's a really kick-ass version.

I loved the video for "Come On, Eileen!'

I saw a UK version of "One Hit Wonders" on VH1 Classic a few weeks back. One of the videos was "I Don't Like Mondays" by the Boomtown Rats. I never understood the lyrics and was surprised to learn that the song was about a 16 year girl who, in 1979, shot at a bunch of kids and adults at the elementary school across the street from her house.

Aldo Nova came out w/ a song life is just a fantasy or it was called fantasy which was a catchy little rock tune in it's time but the rest of what he did sucked so I guess that's a one hit wonder ..... I know you said just name one but the artist who sang I smell sex & candy was a one hit thing as well as while the rest of their songs sucked

I am changing my vote. This wasn't truly a one hit wonder as the guy came out with a send single but it bombed and died in a week. Spirit in the Sky Norman Greenbaum is living in northern California and remains as he always has been, a practicing Jew.

Hey, you want 1 hit wonders? Just go back to the '60s. Just about all of those hits were 1 hitters, mainly because they all sucked...with a few notable exceptions. I kinda liked Itchycoo Park by Small Faces.

That's a good one! The lead singer was very HOT and SEXY in that skirt in the video. It's a shame she passed away in 1997 from lung cancer. What was her name again? Patty something.
