Today, dear friends, is National One Hit Wonder Day, a fact that I would have completely missed had it not been for our local news bringing it up. For those who don’t know, a One Hit Wonder is a musical artist who manages to hit the top 40 once and only once. Of course this varies by country, but the US uses BIllboard as the starting point. A TRUE One Hit Wonder is someone who hits BIllboard’s Hot 100 only once, although of late that has been amended to strictly top 40 by many people.
Here’s Spotify’s channel devoted to those greats who come hard, burn brightly, and go too fast – and some of them still may return one day soon. Let’s all have some fun today, shall we? Drop us a line and let us know what your favorite One Hit Wonder is!
