Because sometimes one hit is all you need….
Everyone has that song. You know the one. It that takes you back to the schoolyard days, your first heartbreak, your 21st birthday, your first kiss…
Some famous one hit wonder bands existed barely long enough to record their lone hit, while others continued to plug away for years after their (brief) moment at the top. Some revel in the notoriety their hit continues to brings them, while others see that hit as the very thing that killed their career. Whichever way you look at, and no matter the era you grew up, the world is filled with one hit wonders.
This spring, trends are undoubtably taking hints and inspiration from the past, and there is a strong focus on #revival. So, we thought we would take a trip down memory lane by asking our team to nominate their favourite one hit wonder of all time. It’s time to sit back and reminisce on the best of the 80’s, 90’s and noughties.
