Default Whats Your Favourite One Hit Wonder?

Tell me your fave one hit wonder song...ever...recently whatever...

Some of mine:

Classic : Come on Eileen (the original)

Recent: Joydrop: Sometimes Wanna Die

OHW that never should have been cursed to the label : Primitve Radio Gods, WICKED album but the big song was "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in my Hand"

Rocket and Where the Monkey meets the man are sweet tunes too

Yer tern!

I don't actually remember the band name, but one song I remember was called "Redneck Wonderland". I've got it on CD-R.

Bobby McFerrin=OHW GOD!

Evanescence: great band, but only one of their songs ever made it to the radio. Shame, all their stuff was radio-worthy.

Proclaimers; "I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more, just to be the man who walked a thousand miles to fall down at your door". I can't even find that one online.

Yeah but how many of their songs ever hit the radio? And I know that was the only one to hit the charts.

Highway Patrol by Junior Brown. Its like a southern/country song. Who sang Come on Eileen? All I can remember is the funky video with that dude dancing in the street.
