NATIONAL ONE-HIT WONDER DAY

Who doesn't love listening to one hit wonders?  Apparently Sept 25th is devoted to being One Hit Wonder Day. It seems odd that someone could have a number 1 hit and then mostly fizzle out.

Here are my top 10 One hit wonder Favorites by order of year

Jeannie C. Riley — "Harper Valley PTA" (1968) This is my very favorite. I still sing this today. I loved the movie and the tv show that were based on the song.

Carl Douglas  —  "Kung Fu Fighting" (1974) My aunt and I used to sing this all the time.

C.W. McCall — "Convoy" (1975) My girls and I still sing this song.

Toni Basil — "Mickey" (1982) I was a teen when this came out and there was a guy who used to come to the local pool hall. I played this on the jukebox every time he came in because his name was Mickey and I thought he was hot.

Bobby McFerrin – “Don’t Worry Be Happy” (1988) My cousin loved this song and used to sing it all the time

Vanilla Ice — "Ice Ice Baby" (1990) Everyone I knew loved this song and we all thought we were such cool rappers.

Billy Ray Cyrus — "Achy Breaky Heart" (1992) This was the first concert I remember attending. Everyone could do this line dance and mullets were back in style.

Blind Melon "No Rain" (1992) This is one of those songs that I listen to when I am feeling down and wanting comfort.

Los del R√≠o — "Macarena" (1996)  I totally loved this dance and can remember doing it while line dancing.

Baha Men — "Who Let the Dogs Out?" (2000)  Our favorite part would be to start barking haha
