Did you know that today is one-hit song wonder day?

Asked by john65pennington (29187points) September 26th, 2010

Today, we are celebrating those one hit wonder songs by artists that were never heard from again. Question: Put on your thinking caps. How many different artists or songs can you recall, that only had a one hit and never heard from again, like the song Popsicles, Icicles, Brandy, or When Will I See You Again?

“I could walk ten thousand miles” by the Proclaimers here it is. Their Scottish accent is so very pronounced!!
Although it was a ‘one hit wonder’ this song has been used many times to raise money for for charity events. here is an example. The Proclaimers are features here, some 10–15 years later.

Oh it totally has to be One Ton with their song Super Sex World. This song played like mad for like…two weeks.

And to a lesser extent, I’d add let’s not forget Around the World by ATC. I love both of them, and the rest of their songs, too.

Yeah I know, some Goth I am.

Oh right, this nonsense too. ’‘Dances in swivel chair’’

@tranquilsea Glad you like them. So do you like their Scottish accent then?

@partyparty Love their accent. I’ve always been fascinated by the fact that their accent comes out in their singing so much.
