One Hit Wonders - your favorites

Heard this on the way home today, haven't heard it in years.



Honorable mention: "Brandy" by Looking Glass, but it's on all the time.

6. Not a favorite by any stretch of the imagination, in fact it's complete crap,

Last edited Fri Oct 26, 2018, 11:06 AM - Edit history (1)

but many years ago I was posting on the Politico forum. At the time they had their own software, which in a way was not that different than DI. Unfortunately they later changed to Discus and everyone left.

One of the more "interesting" posters was REDNECK JESUS, a homophobe who in real life was Tim McGovern. He was in The Motels and after that formed Burning Sensations, whose 1982 debut album included the contemptible One Hit Wonder "Belly of the Whale".

11. Shaddap You Face - Joe Dolce



I grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. a neighborhood that was easily 90%+ Italian when this song broke the top 40 (at least on local charts) back in 1981. It was funny hearing this cute little song blasting out of the Cadillacs of guys who looked like they'd otherwise rip your head off your shoulders then sit down and eat a cannoli without a care in the world afterwards.

14. Python Lee Jackson - In a Broken Dream

They were Aussie. From Wikipedia:
"The song was written in the 1960s by the group's keyboard player and singer, Dave Bentley. Believing his vocals were not correct for the song, Bentley brought in Rod Stewart. Before being successful with Faces or in his solo career, Stewart was recruited as a session musician for the song and paid by being bought a new set of seat covers for his car. Issued in October 1970, it did not make the charts. Re-released in 1972 following the rise to stardom by Stewart, the song reached number 56 in the US charts before greater success in the UK later that year"
