One hit wonders... give em to me.

Postby bungle613 » Tue Aug 04, 2009 10:03 pm

Watched a one hit wonder show the other day and really disagreed with most of it but oh well. Got me thinking though, I don't really have any one hit wonders anywhere in my collection. Doesn't have to be some huge hit, just something good in some regard. Catchy, musical genius, whatever.

I'll throw out one of my favourites from god knows when... Salty Dog - Come Along.

Musically bad, didn't really hit big but man, I still like it.

Sir Mixalot's whole "Swass" album was pretty good. I know nothing made it to radio there but rap NEVER got on radio until the late 90's.
