The Top Ten

1 I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers

I love The Proclaimers. Sunshine of Leith is a fantastic album. It's a shame they only get recognition for that one song. - PetSounds

2 Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners

Love the choir arrangement

3 Brandy - Looking Glass
4 Forever Young - Alphaville

The Contenders

11 Take On Me - A-ha

Ahahaa you think A-ha are a one hit wonder.

13 Epic - Faith No More

Their lead singer has a six-octave vocal range, possibly the largest in pop/rock music.

14 Magic - Pilot
15 Promises - Nero

And it's also one of their weakest. With that said, I don't rate Nero very highly. - PositronWildhawk

I do like this song. - Pony

16 Changed the Way You Kiss Me - Example

This song is mainstream but he's got so many great songs - CabadePartyhunter

I wouldn't class him as a one hit wonder he has had so many hits in the uk - Subs1997
