Celebrating the one-hit wonders!

Community Manager

Bringing this conversation over from the Twitterverse as I thought it really fun to hear about favorite one-hit wonder songs across the decades. Do you have a favorite, or maybe a few from different periods in your life? Share them here!


I'll kick things off:


  • Childhood: Heart and Soul (T'Pau)
  • Young adulthood: Teenage Dirtbag (Wheatus)
  • Recent times: Gold (Kiiara)

A-ha "Take on Me" is an all-time favorite. More recently Gotye's Somebody That I Used to Know.
"What's Up?" by 4 Non Blondes will always have a place in my heart!
Big fan of Stacy's Mom personally :) lol
Of course, throughout life!
John Lennon { Imagine }
Chumbawumba "Tubthumping" comes to mind from the 90's. Also, I'm a big 80's fan, and while there are many one hit wonders of this decade, I have to call out Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time." You either love it or hate it lol. I love it cause it's peppy, has a good beat and it always put me in a good mood no matter how cheesy it is!
I remember when I used to think "Loser" by Beck was going to be a one hit wonder, then he went released another like 8 best selling albums!
