    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

    Nilsson also did One, Everybody's Talkin, Coconut, Jump into the Fire, Me and my Arrow, Spaceman as well as Without You.

    Indio - Big Harvest
    More of a one "album" wonder as the album is fantastic beginning to end.
