Top Ten One Hit Wonders


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Born to Be Alive - Patrick Hernandez
22 Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve
23 Bad Day - Daniel Powter

Any 90s or 2000s kid recognizes this song

I do I like to tease my sister with it comes on that one commercial about all the nfl teams with their bad seasons.
But he is a one hit wonder

24 Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
25 99 Red Balloons - Nena

With 8 Top 5 hits, Nena is one of the most successful artists of all time in Germany and she managed to have hit singles in four decades.
That's, like, the exact opposite of a one hit wonder. - Martin_Canine

26 Steal My Sunshine - Len
27 Bleeding 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.

28 Mother - Danzig
29 What Is Love? - Haddaway

i have listend to this song around 14,983,637 times...i am still not bored with it. - mrawesom707

Do you know any other song from them? Nope: one hit wonder. Best stuff only if you love night at the roxbury though - jewunit69

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

I think this is an amazing song. It's mainstream 90s music perfected. If it wasn't for this I might have voted for The Safety Dance even though Men Without Hats also had Pop Goes the World

30 One 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. - Metal_Treasure

31 I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz
32 Whip It - Devo
33 Mambo 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!

C'est un merveilleux mambo pour danser

34 Bodies - Drowning Pool
35 Cars - Gary Numan

Wow as if this makes the list, don't get me wrong it's a great song but "are friends electric" sorry was that not a hit "she's got claws" what about that, I'm 17 so wasn't around at the time of release but come on people! - DeadAsian

I have this song on my IPOD and waste 3/4 of the battery listening to this song! I do like Tainted Love too... in algebra I can synchronize my heartbeat to this song. XD - fireinside96

36 A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton
37 Black Betty - Ram Jam
38 No Rain - Blind Melon
