    Does it get any better than Biz Markie and Divinlys?


    ...actually yes, it get's much, much better than that, but I'm still going with them for the purposes of this thread.

    Love that song, especially when he gets all screechy.

    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
