    MSP +1. Good going to get anthem status with one shot.

    I really liked Safety Dance by Men Without Hats.

    Indeed, although I’ve never really thought of “them” as a OHW. They were really just Gregg Alexander plus session musicians, who won a grammy for a Santana song and wrote piles of (mostly rubbish, to be fair) pop songs for people in the 2000s and despite “dropping out” of the music industry because he didn’t like being the front man of a band, made shedloads of money through writing.

    You Only Get What You Give was an awesome song though.

    Space? The Mock Turtles? The Proclaimers? Are we redefining one-hit wonders as bands that have had several hits?

    Aye, but all most of us remember is 500 miles… :mrgreen:

    The Proclaimers, with their 9 albums over 25 years (2 gold and one platinum incidentally), their 3 top 10 singles, oh and their succesful musical and £4m-grossing film 😆

    Was Female of the Species not Space’s big hit?

    As for Stiltskin, I’m not sure… They did have 2 hits technically, but Footsteps was the EXACT SAME SONG as Inside so probably shouldn’t count.

    Space? Who posted Space? 😆

    Actually The Ballad of Tom Jones which got to no. 4!

    I appreciate we’re straying from the “awesome” theme, but it’s better than the Proclaimers!!

    Well having checked Wikipedia, to make sure I hadn’t missed some massive slew of smash hits, it concluded:

    “Can You Dig It?” breached the Top 20 in the UK Singles Chart. Their follow up single “And Then She Smiles” failed to replicate the success of the previous single, only reaching no. 44 in the charts……

    ……The Mock Turtles were unable to follow up the early success and were dropped by their label

    I’d say that pretty much defines one hit wonder, doesn’t it?

    Yes, that’s why I posted one of their “other” hits upthread.

    Can someone else do the Youtube link but how about ‘White Town’ – ‘Your Woman’?

    Reached no 1 and they only reached the UK charts once again at a lowly 57 so pretty much the definition of 1 hit wonder.
