Good song, yes - but too easy to turn into a cliche song. Much like how "The Reason" by Hoobastank became a wedding song. :-/

Ergh, beat me to it. The 'Cuna actually has a CD or two from 'em and they're not bad...

I never actually bought one of their CDs, but I always liked (and still do) Marcy Playgrounds "Sex and Candy". Wouldn't mind listening to some more stuff from 'em.

Another good band was Big Star - they only made two or three CDs in the 70s... don't know what happened to 'em, but they were good CDs. ;-D

The guy you refer to is Gary Numan. He had a string of hits in the UK, but "Cars" was his only hit in the US. I bought his Greatest Hits collection about six years ago, and I love it. If you like "Cars", you'll love his other stuff. ;-D

so far, I'm liking three mentioned...

The Cult (so very good)
Semisonic
SR-71 (I actually went on a downloading spree for their songs... actually they are pretty good. I recommend "Hello Hello", "Fame (What she's wanting)", "Last Man on the Moon", and "Politically Correct" for those who liked "Right Now".

Others that need to be mentioned...

Lit (ok... so they had 2-3, but still)
The Ataris
All-American Rejects
Flogging Molly (crazy Irish... they had 2 semi-hits... but they are a great band. Especially live)

Quiet Riot, I love "Cum on Feel the Noise", and if you listen to some of their other stuff, its pretty good.

Blind Faith - Though, I'll defer to Clapton- he certainly knew better than I

Blues Image - Ride Captain Ride -- Almost perfect '70's song

Head East - I know in the Upper Mid-West, they weren't considered one-hit, but in most of the rest of the country, they were

Ram Jam - Black Betty was awesome - must have been something else in there?

Rossington Collins - Nice resurrection from the Skynyrd wreckage

Godfathers - would you believe they had SIX studio albums? I had no idea

Mother Love Bone - Death has a way of encroaching on further projects

Mad Season - New-age Blind Faith?

I would exclude The Ataris from your list b/c they aren't one hit wonders. I mean, just because they aren't really mainstream doesn't mean that they are one hit wonders. They have 4 cds out so how can they be one hit wonders...

This was gonna be my mention... that song was so good and then... nothing. They have a few other decent ones. I like "Comin Up From Behind".

Also, how come the only hit by The Avalanches was Frontier Psychiatrist? :-b If you've never seen the video for it, I suggest you download it.
