  • Favorite One-Hit Wonders

    Freshman, by The Verve Pipe, came on this morning, and it got me thinking...I absolutely love that song. One of my all-time favorites. But, the band has nothing else to offer.


    What are some of your favorite one-hit wonders?

      Surprisingly both of those bands have 5+ albums and are still going.

        Not sure if this counts because it only got to like 78 on the Hot 100, but Dream by Forest For the Trees is a fave of mine.

                Betty is one of the best "heavy" albums of the decade. Unsung is an incredible song, too...That bass line, and the three guitars...

                  Not one hit wonder but similar, Publix plays the most random songs. If there’s something I forgot and haven’t heard in years, it’s on at Publix. I made a point to write it down, in the past few months I heard “breakfast at Tiffany’s” “highway to the danger zone” and a Natalie Merchant song from the mid 90s.

                  I wonder if it’s corporate run or local.

                    Actually, now that you mention it. I may have been thinking of Unsung as their radio hit.

                      I find it funny to walk into Popeye's with a full ghetto crew and hear Tony Orlando or John Tesh overhead.

                        Fun fact, Tesh ran with the bloods for a few months in the 80s. He had to endure the ceremonial beat down to get out and was hospitalized for a month. While in a coma, he came up with the NBC NBA song and the rest is history.

                          Tesh has popped so many cherries he could make a truckload of cherry pies.

                              That song is terrible.
