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?
Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you
Taken from the song Stuck in the Middle with You from Stealers Wheel, from their self titled album (1973). Originally written after a meeting with record executives and producers, the song became is now most famous after its use in a rather gruesome Reservoir Dogs scene.
