Biggest One Hit Wonder

Recommended Posts

Was talking about this with my wife tonight. My biggest impacting one hit wonder is....

Deelite's Groove is in the heart.

It's played everywhere even these days, 16 years after its release. Despite big names on the track including Bootsy Collins and QTip they couldn't back it up.

It had and still has massive impact all over the world. It's huge and will continue to be for a long time.

What's yours?

Massive Attack are far from one hit wonders...


Massive Attack have sold millions of albums. A couple of their albums have topped UK and other countries charts.

While the singles from Mezzanine including Teardrop are probably their most widely known now, Unfinished Sympathy routinely appears in "greatest songs" polls.

A-ha , Take on me , i don't remember them bringing out any other songs back in the day .

Yeah thats a good one.

Film clip was awesome, even if the acting was atrocious.

Well I say nothing they did ever compared to Teardrop, the rest were poor attempts in my opinion, barely raised a ripple, so still one hit wonders in my books.

I'd also like to say Boomtown Rats - Tell me Why I don't like Mondays, but I'll probably get told they also had a string of hits [i can't remember any of them so they must have been good].

There are some great ones there, so awesome!

The dude from OMC died young from some genetic issue from memory. I have a feeling his brother did too. Might be the reason for the one hit. :dry2:
