Thread: Biggest One Hit Wonder?

  1. #1
    what do you think was the biggest one hit wonder? It can be a song, album, whatever.

    I'll start off with (though I know you can guys can do better) LEN - Steal My Sunshine. I loved the song a lot more before I found out the band totally sucks.

    Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen .Number one song in the US in 1982 and they never even charted again.

    It's all Meg's fault.

    Chumbawamba- Tubthumping

    One of my favorite bands, who have over a dozen great albums and are still putting out quality releases. They are known to pretty much everyone for their one big hit party song. Just looking at their lastfm charts, virtually noone listens to any other songs, even on their hit album

    Technically the biggest one hit wonder was Los del Río - The Macarena . Over 12 million in sales ,second longest run at number one , on the Hot 100 chart for 60 weeks and best selling debut single of all time in the US.
    Only the fact that several versions were released prevents it from being something stupid like fourth on the all time biggest singles list behind Candle in the Wind, White Christmas and Rock around the Clock.

    It's all Meg's fault.

    Mambo #5 by Lou Bega ?
    Not sure how popular it was in other parts of the world, but was really popular here.
    I still hear it on the radio once in a while.
