    One-Hit Wonders

    What's your favorite one-hit wonder song, from any era? Feel free to provide links, if desired.

    I have some of their other albums, but I really enjoy The Toadies' "Possum Kingdom": The Toadies - Possum Kingdom - YouTube

    Holy crap, I'd never seen Mungo Jerry's facial hair: Mungo Jerry - In The Summertime ORIGINAL 1970 - YouTube

    Pronounced with an "umpty": Digital Undergound "Humpty Dance" - YouTube

    Oh, they definitely had other good songs, but I don't know that they were "hits"?

    Good songs? Maybe. Hits? Not technically. Neither of them charted in either the US or Britain. That's usually the standard by which "one hit wonders" are judged.

    DOA by Bloodrock. 1970. Perhaps one of the strangest songs ever because of the topic. It's my fav because my band actually played it at a high school prom as a joke. We loved it...not sure the crowd did. Lol
