    Are those the official lyrics?

    I'll throw another Canadian in the mix and say Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway".

    My favorite is probably 99 Luftballons by Nena.

    I'm not sure, I usually default to a sort of fast mumble for that song.

    Snow-Informer was huge when I was 19 on campus at Iowa State. Every frat party played it like 3 times a night and everyone tried to sing the words.

    Now, UB40 also had a cover of "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You" that did pretty well, but I'm not sure if it was a hit.
    UB40, while not the most popular band ever is not a one hit wonder by any means. Lots of songs on the charts: UB40 discography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (actually more than I expected)

    I don't know if this song ever crossed the "hit" threshold, but I remember hearing it a lot a few years ago and I have heard absolutely nothing about this band since:

    I actually read this wrong and thought you said, "I used to get that song stuck in my head any time I'd have a LOVER in Memphis". I was like WTF

    Not my favorite, but this is the song I always think of when the topic is one-hit wonders:

    Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me

    Re: One-Hit Wonders

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
