I’ve covered countless artists who have left a huge legacy through their consistently superb and prolific output. But sometimes there are artists who only strike gold once. At least here in the UK. But hey, that’s one more than the rest of us. Before listing mine, I actually thought others could be included. But while they may be best known for one song, artists like Haddaway, Shakespeare’s Sister, Soul Asylum, Vance Joy and Sinead O’ Connor have had chart success with other tracks. Do you have a favourite one hit wonder? Was there an artist you thought would go on to more success?
Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember.
