    Since ISUAgronomist has been somewhat MIA, I figured I'd have to pull my weight to alert you to that fact!

    Not sure I could rank my favorites, but a few "Classic" 1-Hitters (only the tip of the iceberg):

    "Stuck in the Middle With You," Stealers Wheel

    "96 Tears," ? and the Mysterians

    "Tainted Love," Soft Cell

    "Cars," Gary Numan (if you assume US charts -- actually had a ton of charting singles in UK)

    Oh, no, no, my friend. As a longtime fan of the skinny Mr. Astley, he also had "Together Forever" and "It Would Take a Strong Strong Man" do well. (Rickrolling debauched the career of a bass-y redheaded demigod.)

    Have you ever heard the long version of this? It just keeps going and going. I think it is like 9-11 minutes long.

    Yes.

    I like that version probably better than radio-length version.

    I like the song, but remember being in the car and wondering how long it would go. :)

    It's a hit in my book; I love that song. The guitars are so...lush.

    Has anyone said Nada Surf "Popular" or Dishwalla "Counting Blue Cars" yet? Or Superdrag's "Sucked Out"? Yeah, that's right, I grew up on mid-90s MTV. Buzz Clips 4 LIFE!

    I've been listening to Hell Below/Stars Above at work today. I love some Toadies, too. They had a concert a few years ago in Omaha when they got back together, I kick myself that I missed it.

    I forgot about Warren G - "Regulate."

    And I freaking love Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark's "If You Leave."
