One-Hit Wonders: Popular and Rare

A One-Hit Wonder is a song by a group or an artist which made it into the top 40 on Billboard…these groups and artists may have had other popular songs that made it into the top 100 but didn’t make it into the top 40 with any other song…they may also have received extensive airplay on local radio stations for various songs…

for our Top Ten List please refer to:

One-Hit Wonders: Popular and Rare

This list is just a random collection of one-hit wonders and may include a few anecdotes about the group or artist. This is not meant to be an all-inclusive listing as we are very particular as to what songs we want to list.

We try our best not to duplicate, but occasionally you might find a song on other lists as well…the more song pages we add the more likely duplication will happen.
