Default Who Is Your Favorite 1-hit Wonder?

Gotta give these guys some credit, 1 hit and faded away is better not at all. I've been on a Donnie Iris kick lately. Mostly known for "Ah! Leah" but nobody could rock the song any harder.

Who's yours?

Donnie Iris is a very talented dude. I guess you could call him a OHW but his impact was pretty far and wide.

There have been a number of bands that made lots of quality music with only one "radio" hit. Crowded House had only one or two hits but are revered, especially Neil Finn. Go look at some of his side projects and the music royalty they attracted. He was also in Split Enz, a bad ass NZ rock band.

Not sure I can answer your question since a ton of great music was behind many OHWs. Good topic, though! Should spur a lot of memories.

No disrespect to Mr. Iris, but the only song I ever heard from him was "Ah! Leah." Which is a shame because there are groups like you said, are out there that are far more than OHW's. But never got the break they needed. Then you have Simple Minds. Who believe wholeheartedly they have several hits. But they will always be "Don't You Forget About Me."

So many over the years, I can't really pick a "One Favorite" ... but a few of
the many I really Liked:


Summertime Blues


Time Has Come Today - Short Version


Nobody - Always Loved the Bass in this song


Tempted - I have no idea why, but I thought this song was COOL AS HELL !


Drivers Seat - Same as Tempted...just a hell of a cool song to listen to.


Never Been Any Reason

Haha whenever this subject comes up I think of a line in a song by an extremely obscure band that I actually own a couple albums of named This Train. I forget which song (not that it matters) but the line is -

One hit wonders laugh at us
cuz at least they've had a hit
