Ten on Tuesday – One Hit Wonders

Today has been a long one.  Sinus infection plus a migraine!?!  Really!?!?  Well, it at least gave me some time in bed to think about this one.  What makes a one hit wonder?  I’m not real sure, because some singers listed as “one hit wonders” on iTunes actually have other songs that I like.  I’m going with musicians that I have only heard of attached to the one song.  So, without further ado, my favorite ten one hit wonders in top ten order are as follows:

10.  Mickey by Toni Basil

9.  Funkytown by Lipps, Inc

8.  Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles

7.  Tainted Love by Soft Cell

6.  Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas

5.  In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry

4.  Mambo Number 5 by Lou Bega

3.  Take on Me by A-Ha

2.  Coconut by Harry Nilsson

1.  No Myth by Michael Penn

My husband has argued my number one pick, but I LOVE No Myth.  Still have my cassette tape of his entire album. And in true one hit wonderness, it’s the only decent song on the album.  One of the first songs I downloaded when I got an iPod.  I’m sticking by my Michael Penn!!
