The Top Ten

The Final Countdown - Europe
They were technically a two-hit wonder, with "Carrie" charting higher. But who remembers that song anymore?
Way better than vanilla ice

2Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
Survivor isn't a one hit wonder band. I've heard other songs by them on the radio.
Ether this or Gangnam Style. This is one of the best songs in the 80's.


3Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
Worst song ever topped off by the beat was stolen from queens "under pressure. " but still his only "hit" song.
This song is so comically stupid lol


Even vanilla ice hated it. Also, ripped off one of the best songs ever

4Tainted Love - Soft Cell
Tainted Love did have great other songs so technically not a one hit wonder, but definitely the best on this list


I listed to this song about 10000000000 times. I wist they made more hits

5Barbie Girl - Aqua
This is, by far, one of the most misunderstood songs in history. The dumb general public didn't get that Aqua was making a social comment. Instead, they took this song way too literally. It deserves a better reputation than the one it has.


stupid cheerleader-type people made this band die because of one misinterpreted song


Aqua is not a one hit wonder but I vote for "Barbie Girl" because I like it. "Dr. Jones" was also a very famous song by Aqua, "My Oh My" and so on.
[Newest]Aqua is a one hit wonder in the us but not in other countries

6Macarena - Los Del Rio

7I Love To Love - Tina Charles

8Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-A-Lot
Name one other song by them, without googling it, please

9Born to Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez

10A-ha - Take On Me
A masterpiece. Barbie girl is number 2?!?!?! This makes me lose faith in humanity.

Alex12345269 of the greatest band hit wonder to some.
number1 all the way! #:^()-+=l%


The Contenders

11My Sharona - The Knack
Awesome Song! Why is this not on the list already?

12Bad Day - Daniel Powter
Any 90s or 2000s kid recognizes this song

13Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men
This song is what pretty much made the Baha Men famous. They're really old. Like, they started their career in the early 80's and had their first album in the early 90's so I guess they had to wait a long time for a song of theirs to be a big hit.
possibly the weirdest song ever made


14Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis
What about that one song she did called I See You? The song played at the end credits of the movie Avatar?
One of the worst songs written in all of the music industry.
This song was trash and it got on my nerves.

15One Night In Bangkok - Murray Head
Of course, this is their most known song, but what about their masterpieces like 'Say it ain't so'? You can't simply ignore them.
A masterpiece written by Björn from ABBA. This explains why Murray Head had only one hit song, this one.


16What Is Love? - Haddaway
i have listend to this song around 14,983,637 times...i am still not bored with it.


Do you know any other song from them? Nope: one hit wonder. Best stuff only if you love night at the roxbury though


I can't listen to this without trying to do the head bob from night at the Roxbury. Pure disco.

17Rock Me Amadeus - Falco

18A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton

19Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of...) - Lou Bega
Why is Nena with 2 songs here (kinda like that)?
This song is sure to entertain you a lot!

20Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye
I'm not really a big fan of this song. I prefer the Mayday Parade (featuring Vic Fuentes) cover. They just made it sound, well, better.
