One-Hit Wonder

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!!

I am lol right now. My son's first job was at McDonald's by Great Adventure and he came home one night so excited because Biz Marquee and an entourage had come in. Said he was wearing about ten pounds of gold but very nice. I already liked the song. I am having trouble leaving comments on blogs cause of this captcha stuff. I have trouble figuring it out. Is it PH eyes or just old eyes? lol
