Default There are at least 27 "One-Hit-Wonders"...

from the '70s. I'm going to start with one of them that, although very popular, wasn't the most popular of them by a long shot. It's “Stuck In The Middle With You” by Stealers Wheel.

Anyone who has seen Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 film “Reservoir Dogs” will understand the inside joke about this song. Written as a parody, the folk rock group was actually surprised it struck gold and achieved commercial success (it sold over a million copies) since it was nothing more than a joke at first.

The first several times I heard this song, I thought it was by Paul MaCartney/Wings!


Can you name some others?

I dunno anything about any of them, BUT my one comment is, IF I could just make a mega buck or two off being a one hit wonder, I would leave all that BS hollywood/entertainment shit and find a nice suburban location close to where I am now, only with a go to hell garage, and have FUN.....

and pay close attention to the investments.....

hell with stupid 50 room mansions in hollywood......

Technically I guess you could call that a one hit wonder for Derek and the Dominoes, but Eric Clapton is surely not a one hit wonder.
