One Hit Wonder Day

(Google Image) 

By Diane Forrest

What do these songs have in common?  They were all ONE hit wonders from various artists.  A One hit wonder is a song from a group that is their only "claim to fame".  Meaning, they never had another hit song.  I would imagine this is not a list I would want to be included in If I was a singer, or part of a band.    If this song brought you instant fame, but you never had another hit song again, that would put an end to your career.  However, even if you were a one hit wonder, that is still more than most people in the world have ever achieved, and would be able to achieve a great since of accomplishment.
