As I was driving home from pulmonary rehab today, I heard on one of the radio stations that it was National One-Hit Wonder Day! How funny, I've never heard of that before! So, I thought I would do a fun little post about artists who only had one major hit in their career. Now, there are soooooo many one-hit wonder hits that I decided to focus on the decade of music that I seem to absolutely love the most, and that is the 90s! I'm picking one song from each year of the 90s! Here we go!
1990: Biz Markie - Just A Friend
I can't tell you how much I STILL love this song!! I have it on my Sony mp3 player, and when it comes on, I just sing along!!
1991: Mark Mark And The Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations
This song brings me back to my high school days!
1992: Charles & Eddie - Would I Lie To You
I'll be honest, I forgot that I used to love this song!! Had I not seen it on the list I found on the internet, I would still not realize who the heck sang this song. Quite obviously, they didn't last too long!!
1993: The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
I still seriously can't stand this song. It was sooo overplayed when it was out, that I can't listen to more than a minute of it after all these years!!
1994: US3 - Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)
This song reminds me of going to a dinner with my boyfriend at the time, and trying to get him to dance. It didn't work. lol
1995: The Rembrandts - I'll Be There For You
This song, of course, became huge because of the extremely popular tv show, Friends. Friends was one of my favorites, and I still watch the repeats whenever I see them on!
1996: Primitive Radio Gods - Standing Outside A Broken Phonebooth With Money In My Hand
I still absolutely love this song, but it has to be one of the most ridiculously long song titles ever!! lol
1997: Aqua - Barbie Girl
I'm really not sure how this song became a hit. I admit I liked it the first few times I heard it, but then I grew tired of it!
1998: K-Ci & JoJo - All My Life
I seriously think anyone who got married in 1998 used this for their first dance. It was soooo popular!!
1999: Len - Steal My Sunshine
The biggest hit I can remember from 1999 is this one! It did get annoying after awhile, but I have to admit, at least it was a happy little ditty!!
Well, these are the songs that were one-hit wonders in the 90s. I tried to be a bit diverse, instead of picking out all the dance songs! This was a rather fun post to do. I'll have to do more like it!!
