Default Let's play a game: One Hit Wonder! or NOT?

I started a thread a couple days ago called One Hit Wonders. Well so few of the songs we've posted have been from artists that you could truly call one-hit wonders. The most fun we've had is correcting each other and reminding ourselves of the other songs these artists have produced. For instance I had Rick Astley with 'Never gonna give you up' as a one-hit wonder and another member very quickly pointed out Rick's other hit 'Together Forever'. Well DUHHHH!

Anyway if I had known how fun and interactive the thread could have been I would have started that thread with THIS format that I am about to propose.

Here we shall take it as a challenge to review one and post one. You will review the previous song challenge as a one-hit wonder or not. You can agree with the poster or disagree and present your facts. You can use wiki-like info or simply posts links to their 'other' hits that exclude them from being a one-hit wonder. Then you will post your own candidate for one-hit wonder or not and the next person will review you and post their own, and so forth and so on. Also at any point if you disagree with a reviewer you can also post your facts. Or if you feel someone missed something in their review please add your own thoughts too.

If this is considered a duplicate or spam thread, that is not my intent and I understand if it gets squashed. It's just our 'One-Hit' Wonder thread has been anything but LOL....I get corrected almost every post, BUT that is where the fun comes in and the best memories come out. I should have started that thread with this format. But hind sight is twenty-twenty.

I had Sugar Ray with FLY as a one-hit wonder and completely forgot their other decent chart singles.

EDIT: Oh here's a key to keep this challenging...your song submission should be from an artist who is truly a one-hit wonder or a two-hit wonder, or only had a small collection of 'decent' songs. Posting a very successful artist or band like Nirvana or Garth Brooks or Greenday just defeats the purpose.

I'll start us off with an easy one to debate...I submit Tiffany's 'I think we're alone now' as a one-hit wonder...OR NOT? You tell me. Present information or post video links to other songs that support your case.

Remember to post your candidate right after for the next person to review.

Not. She also had a hit with "Could've Been".




How about Thomas Dolby, the man behind one of the greatest singles of the 80s? And, yes, I know he had a significant career outside of this song doing a variety of things, but did he have any other big hit singles?

I don't think so... Did a quick google search and couldn't find any other significant singles.

I really don't know much about this band but this is the only song I think of when I think of them.... Anyone know if they had any other great songs?

In The US, it is, although he did have a strong cult hit with the UK Top 40 Hyperactive.
