    Luckily Aimee Mann has had a great career since.

    Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Men Without Hats.

    Did Wang Chung have one or two hits?

    Men Without Hats also had "Pop Goes the World"

    Wang Chung had quite a few, although "Dance Hall Days" is probably the most-definitive after "... Have Fun Tonight"

    I forgot one of my favorite one-hit wonders, never mind her origins:

    Cannonball - The Breeders - YouTube
    The Breeders album Last Splash is fantastic. I think I'll listen to it now!

    It's really good from top to bottom. I can't believe they weren't bigger. I haven't listened to the album they came out with a few years ago, though.

    Re: One-Hit Wonders

    "Rockstar" was also a pretty big hit by N.E.R.D. "She Wants to Move" is actually their highest US chart hit from the Fly or Die album.

    Pharell is a musical genius but oddly, he's probably better at writing hits for other people than his own bad.

    Came out in 93. I stole it from my older brother and listened to it that whole summer. Great stuff.

    The Deal sisters at their best.

    Right? Makes a lot of sense when you learn it.

    I like to pretend the guy in your .gif is Meatloaf, BTW.

    Not a huge hit, but a good one anyway:

    David Essex - Rock On - YouTube

    This song was headed for #1 until the next one hit the radio waves. Personally, I like Rock On much better.

    Seasons In The Sun - Terry Jacks 1974 - YouTube
