What are your favorite one-hit wonders? (gathering nominations for a possible poll)

What are your favorite one-hit wonders? If I get ambitious enough I will turn this into a poll one day.

Please submit no more than 5 of your own nominations and/or second any already nominated you feel are worthy (max 5 titles per Doper). Those seconded will go into the poll. If you cite more than 5 I will accept only the first 5.

Mine (and please submit in this format):

Looking Glass - Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)
Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
Blind Melon - No Rain
Norman Greenbaum - Spirit in the Sky
The Surfaris - Wipe Out

I know there are some gray areas as to what constitutes a one-hit wonder. The judge will make all determinations. The judge is me.

John Fred and his Playboy Band - Judy in Disguise (with Glasses)
Napoleon XIV -They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha, Ha!
Alice Merton - No Roots


Merton quite likely will lose her one-hit wonder status eventually.

I'm not sure of the judging criteria, and caveated with the inevitable "...but they also had another hit that charted at #72 on the Guam Hot 100 charts..." responses, but here's the most recent from my playlists...

Nena - 99 Luftaballons
Masters of Reality - She Got Down
The Icicle Works - Whisper to a Scream
The Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star
Michael Penn - No Myth

These are the ones that immediately come to mind for me. Except for Blind Melon which you already mentioned in the OP (and which I think is an all time great tune).

Tough to narrow it down to five. But, without debating the definitions of "one" and "hit," and in no particular order:

Rob Jungklas - Memphis Thing
The Music Explosion - Little Bit O' Soul
Lee Michaels - Do You Know What I Mean
Swingin' Medallions - Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)
The Polecats - Make A Circuit With Me

There are several already listed that I'd second, but I'll hold off for now.

My nominations..

The Normal – Warm Leatherette (1978)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OG3PnQ3tgzYTaco - Puttin' on the Ritz (1982)

"Louis Louis" by The Kingsmen. The recording is shoddy with a vocal miscue. This cover of the song is great in outsized influence.

"Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies. This one is a weird personal favorite.

"Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead. It's not their best song, but for my taste this is best group to have only one top 50 hit.

I concur with "No Rain" and "Video Killed the Radio Star" to round out my top 5 picks.

Also....
Until now, I did not know that "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" was released as a single. I had to look this up. The US release with 2 minute 53 seconds edited length hit #30 on the on the US Billboard chart. The 17+ minute album version is the endeared classic popular version of this song IMHO.

I wanted to include "96 Tears" by ? and the Mysterians, but apparently "I Need Somebody" reached #22 on the US Billboard chart.

I'm not going to allow the Grateful Dead tune (Truckin', Casey Jones).

"No Rain" and "Video" have already been seconded.

Therefore, EM, you still have 3 more picks if you want them.

I'll add "There She Goes" by the La's. OK, it didn't crack the Top 40 (peaked at #49), but it did hit #2 on the Billboard alternative chart. The Sixpence None the Richer cover did crack the Top 40 (#32), but I'm nominating the original.

There's always a-ha's "Take on Me" which did reach #1, but is complicated by the fact that they apparently had two other charting singles on the US charts. So, like the above, it's going to be a matter of definitions.

Modern English's "Melt With You" seems to be around everywhere these days, but in the band's heyday, they only hit #76 on Billboard. That said, it did hit #7 on the Mainstream Rock chart (and the band's other charting hit "Hands Across the Sea" only barely cracked the Hot 100, and only charted #47 on the Modern Rock chart, so I think this one can count, no?)

Then, I dunno. I'll take "Cars" by Gary Numan and, of course, "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen.

Since I have two more:

Spirit -- I Got a Line on You.
Buffalo Springfield -- For What It's Worth

Spirit's song was an college radio hit, but did reach #25 on the charts.

Buffalo Springfield released other singles, but the best they got on the charts was #44.

"Girl of My Dreams", Bram Tchaikovsky

"Crash", the Primitives (again, the original)

I'm sure I can think of some others that haven't already been mentioned.

Adding:

Disclosure - Latch
Tasmin Archer - Sleeping Satellite
The Beta Band - Dry the Rain

(Those are UK artists, but the one-hit-wonderness (and even which one (if any) is the one hit) is US-centric.)

Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta
Focus - Hocus Pocus
Procul Harum - A Whiter Shade of Pale
O-Zone - Dragostea Din Tei

Not even their first or second highest-charting single! (Song #2 didn't even crack the top 100, and even just considering the alternative charts, it was only the third-best. "Girls & Boys" and "There's No Other Way" outperformed it chart-wise. I know their stuff reasonably well, and in today's playlists I'm by far most likely to hear Song #2, then maybe "Girls & Boys," and I can't remember the last time I heard "There's No Other Way" on the radio.)

I choked on my lunch on that one - I'd been wincing at the mention of artists like Dexy's and Gary Numan - both highly successful - but BLUR! To a Brit, that's like saying The Who were a one hit wonder.

Dexy's had only one hit in the US. We had a mention of the Grateful Dead and while technically correct, it was very odd as the group was hugely successful for 30+ years. Also I had assumed Truckin' was a hit at some point but it only reached #64 on the charts.

I already used up my picks and seconds, but I must agree that Procul Harum’s “Whiter Shade of Pale” is a great choice, and I hope someone seconds it.

Depending on how you want to define "Brit Pop," the only bands to have some mainstream success here are Oasis and Coldplay (though post-Brit Pop Coldplay). Pulp never charted. Suede (apparently known as "the London Suede" on Billboard charts here) has nothing on the Hot 100, but "Metal Mickey" did place top 10 on the Alternative Songs chart (their only charter there.) Radiohead might even be conceivably called a "one-hit wonder" for "Creep." (Their only top 40 song in the 90s; apparently "Nude" hit #37 in 2008.)

Blur is pretty much only known for the "Woo-hoo song" ("Song #2") in reasonably mainstream US pop culture. "Boy and Girls" is reasonably well-known among the crowd I hang out with, but that's because I was a freshman or sophomore in college when that was released. I don't really recall hearing it outside the college context.

This whole thread is making me question everything I thought I knew about the world. Turns out we're not just divided by a common language. Someone just mentioned Ultravox and Kate Bush. Kate Bush! Wowsers.

Perhaps we need to start a British music mix tape.

On the flip side, I guess there's a billion country music stars we've never heard of.

My favorite no-hit wonder is Tom Paxton, who has probably written more hit songs for other people , but never charted for himself.

Wait, the T'Pau post wasn't tongue-in-cheek? Never heard of either of the songs or the artist. Just listened to them, and I got nuthin'.
