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?
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they’d only remind me of you
Taken from the song Nothing Compares 2U by Irish singer Sinead O’Connor from her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got (1990). Originally written by Prince for his side project The Family, the song later achieved huge success and topped both sides of the Atlantic.
