One-Hit Wonder Day

Celebrate the Day

Some artists only get that “five minutes of fame” and today is a day to celebrate those artists who gave us an amazing one-hit wonder. This holiday was established back in 1990 by a journalist named Steve Rosen. Below is a list of some one hit wonders that we still (hopefully) find catchy even now! What’s your favorite one-hit wonder?

  2. My Sharona by The Knack
  3. Mambo #5
  4. Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas
  5. Mickey by Toni Basil
  6. Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners
  7. I’m Gonna Be (500) Miles by The Proclaimers
  8. Electric Avenue by Eddy Grant
  9. Who Let the Dogs Out by the Baha Men
  10. I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred
