    National One Hit Wonder Day

    Missed posting about this yesterday - but apparently there is an actual day celebrated for "One Hit Wonders".

    Which of course led me to start thinking about all the one hit wonders out there - let us know what your favorite is...

    Here are my top 5, in no particular order:

    Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come on Eileen
    99 Luft Balloons - Nena
    Take On Me - A-Ha
    Whoomp! There it is - Tag Team
    Groove Is In The Heart - Deee-Lite

    Just missed the cut:
    Mambo #5 - Lou Bega
    Building Topps sets from 1969 to the present. Always looking for Puckett cards.

    A-ha was no one hit wonder. They had several hit singles with two in the Top 40, plus the single for James Bond movie "The Living Daylights"

    Sir Mix-A-Lot also had Funky Cold Medina, which could be considered a hit. He's a two-hit wonder.

    Got off the Bond train when they had Denis Richards playing a nuclear physicist - I am willing to stretch reality and believability pretty far in movies, but that casting decision was a little to over the top!
