Top Ten One Hit Wonders


The Contenders: Page 5

81 You Get What You Give - The New Radicals
82 Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus
83 Rather Be - Clean Bandit
84 Want U Back - Cher Lloyd
85 Trouble - Shampoo
86 Spaceman - Babylon Zoo

Great song. While its heavy grunge and industrial rock influences may alienate (pardon the pun) some, this a brilliant song. Very experimental sound with such complex lyrics to match. Too much of an anomaly in the Britpop dominated scene for its group to have any future huge hits (despite how their later stuff was easily more accessible), but it was good that the public were willing enough to let such an alternative song top the charts for so long, regardless of how they did it. If only such songs dominated the charts these days, as opposed to the endless crap boybands and supposed pop princesses release nowadays. - Mrveteran
