It’s One Hit Wonder Day. What’s Your Favorite?
I've worked in radio a long time and have seen my share of "One Hit Wonders" come and go just as quickly as they came. I can probably count the really good ones on one hand.
Probably, one of my favorites was a song that played on the radio when I was in high school. I still kind of get a little flashback when aI hear it. I featured it in Baxter's Attic this morning, in honor of One Hit Wonder Day. It's "Dp You Know What I Mean" by Lee Michaels.
Here are the top 10 one hit wonders, according to Huff Post. I've got to admit, there is not one on here I would even consider purchasing.
#10 Right Said Fred "I'm Too Sexy" (Should have come out later with "Too Sexy for My Pants)
#9 Sir Mix-A-Lot "Baby Got Back" (was he a bartender?)
#8 Len "Steal My Sunshine" (never heard of it)
#7 Dexy's Midnite Runners "Come On Eileen" (no comment)
#6 Vanilla Ice "Ice Ice Baby" (an exibition of mediocrity)
#5 Bobby McFerrin "Don't Worry Be Happy" (easier said than done)
#4 The Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" (not horrible, but close)
#3 Los del Rio "Macarena" (gag)
#2 Soft Cell "Tainted Love" (Plays on hold at the free clinic)
