WYRK Listeners Share Their Favorite One Hit Wonders
I don’t know who declares these days but they hit a good one yesterday. Tuesday was declared “One Hit Wonder Day” so I headed to facebook to find out what some of your favorite one hit wonder bands were. You came up with some good ones.
First off, I guess I have to explain what a one hit wonder is. A one hit wonder is a band that has just one hit but it’s a big one. You know…like “Come On Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. It was a big hit during its time but can you name another big hit from that band?
Therefore, Kenny Chesney, Big & Rich, and yes…even Billy Ray Cyrus don’t fit on this list. Here are some good ones that you named as your favorite one hit wonders:
- Sylvia — Nobody
- Rednex — Cotton Eyed Joe
- Mark McGuinn — Mrs. Steven Rudy (He did have a couple other singles but none of them ever cracked the top 20 on the US Country Charts)
- Ryan Shupe And The Rubber Band — Dream Big
- Michael Peterson — Drink, Swear, Steal And Lie
- Blue County — Good Little Girls
- Steve Azar — I Don’t Have To Me ‘Til Monday (Again, another guy who had a couple more singles but unfortunately never cracked the top 20)
- Ken Mellons — Jukebox Junkie
- Yankee Grey — All Things Considered
Pirates Of The Mississippi — Feed Jake
Probably the biggest one in my mind though:
Heartland — I Loved Her First
