post #136 of 147
Billy Vera & The Beaters - At This Moment. A song from Family Ties that was pretty popular for a short time. Here is a link from Amazon so you can jog your memory.

Thought I would throw out some random old school hip-hop references from middle school and grade school. I don't actually own any of these albums anymore, but they epitomize the phrase, "one hit wonder" to me.

Positive K - I Got a Man
Tag Team - Whoomp There It Is
Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations
Skee-Lo - I Wish

I think some of you aren't understanding the term "one hit wonder". Alice Cooper and Phil Collins have had several hits.

Mine would be "I Believe" - Jai

His first two solo albums "Face Value" & "Hello, I Must Be Going" were very good before he tried to become the English, caucasion version of Lionel Ritchie.

It was interesting to catch up with some of the long forgotten memories - the more so that this thread has been just revived after 5 years.

Where I come from the following were one hit wonders, most of them many years ago:

 

Hot Butter - Popcorn

Space - Magic Fly

Morris Albert - Feelings

Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street

Eric Carmen - All By Myself

Harry Nielson - I Can't Live (If Living Is Without You)

Stephen Bishop - On And On

Jennifer Rush - The Power Of Love

Edie Brickell - Circle

Mazzy Star - Fade Into You

Indio - Big Harvest

 

More of a one "album" wonder as the album is fantastic beginning to end.

who ever said that we will not be able to agree on one hit wonders due to the fact that we live in different countries was right.  However from the US

In a Gadda Da Vida    Iron Butterfly

 

The Hollies had many hits including He ain't Heavy, He's my brother.
