She had a decent hit with "King Of Anything" (got a lot of airplay here) - I liked that way better than Love Song (for some reason; not my usual cup of tea).

Not all one hit wonders are bad songs and some of them should've had more hits (like "Save Tonight" for example) :tears:.

The success of this was so unlikely it's going to be hard to top :sobbing:.

Another few Filter songs did OK on a few US charts, you're right - but "Take A Picture" was the only 'mainstream hit' :p.

the only filter song i knew about before seeing this thread was the one from x files soundtrack:

yApB48sGfAo

otoh, the first jamelia song i heard was this, she had more than one hit in the uk:

WQ-Y1r6yLdM

back in the 90's jeans commercials produced some real one hit wonders:

GeUx5sdp3qM

babylon zoo registered at least one more uk chart entry but it was on the back of this. here's the commercial where the song was used:

pln1m_lYFsE

we also had these guys:

VuTVKO0RScI

and the commercial (probably better than both the song, the video and the band, and i don't even think the commercial was that good):

many of them you mentioned had a few hits
alize had plenty of songs played on polish radio for example
eagle eye cherry had a few songs, he also recorded with santana
manu chao and noir desir :facepalm: they are both very famous, just prob not on commercial radio stations
semisonic had a few hits
new radicals' had 3 famous songs, "someday we'll know" was the best
anouk is a star in holland

as for my favs, i guess babylon zoo was great and white town as well

one hit wonder doesn't mean that the singer doesn't make more songs :facepalm:
i know Anouk is still active but as you said she's a big star in Netherlands not in other countries, Nobody's wife was a big hit in Europe and the only song that non dutch people will remember about her so i don't get all this drama :weirdo:

Mis-Teeq had 7 top 10 singles in the UK, LeAnn has "How Do I live" and numerous US country hits, Christina was very successful in Europe, "Everywhere" wasn't even Michelle's highest-charting single in the US :p.

btw, i don't think it's a good idea to post so many songs in one post as some people have done here :shrug:

a) the page will load more slowly with 100 embedded videos

b) people are more likely to listen songs you posted if you don't post more than one or two of them in a single post :oh:


i guess the 90's and early naughties are the most recent period where we can say someone was just a one hit wonder. artists from more recent times still may surprise.

I think it's fair to say they're a one-hit wonder single-wise ;). They had more than one album that sold well however. I much prefer the song "Disappear" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75t20EpMId8) by them :D.
