I'll be having nightmares for weeks!


Shit! Now I have Funkytown stuck in my head. I hate it when that happens.....


When I was a little kid Puttin' on the Ritz was my favorite song! One time they had a guy some and put on a concert and he sang that song and I was convinced it was the real guy who sang it. I was in love. *l* What memories. Can you believe the Achy Breaky Heart guy had his own tv show and they are now showing it on Swedish TV? I find it disturbing. (Doc or Doc Cassidy).

Billy Ray Cyrus had his own tv show?! about WHAT? good lord *rolls eyes*

It's really terrible and I can't believe I watch it, but just can't help it because I need to heckle him. He's a kind-hearted country doctor in the middle of New York City. He uses his "country charm" to shake things up and make NYC a little better. It's pretty bad.

Hey, two of those bring back memories! Well, 96 Tears is sort of a memory, somewhere back in a 60s haze, and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is one of the main reasons why I stopped listening to the mainstream stations and discovered bluegrass instead.

Turning Japanese!!! Too funny :) I'm surprised that Tainted Love was a one hit wonder though, I loved that song in the 80s :)

Great list!!

one hit wonders

Technically Rock me Amadeus shouldnt be in the list.
Falco, also had a hit song with Der Kommissar.
tragically he died in a car accident and won´t be able to continue his illustrious music career.

why do I know these things? I live in Germany. I am smarter than the people at VH1. and you are adopted.

Re: one hit wonders

Nice try John, you pooterhead. It was a hit in Germany, but NOT in on the U.S. charts, thereby qualifying them for VH-1's 1-hit wonder list. Did you think *I* picked these songs?!
