    Two Hit Wonders

    There are a kazzillion one hit wonders.

    Who are your favorite two hit wonders?

    Jet and The Outfield are a couple of mine.









    Please don't say The Sweet, because you would be wrong.
    Give me Liberty, or give me Death!

    Wow! Looking back at those Outfield videos, the music was much better without the videos. The videos were GAF!
    Give me Liberty, or give me Death!

      Can't have a two hit wonder thread without an experienced host.

        Outfield may have only had a couple of bona fide hits but the Play Deep album had many good songs on it and is still very listenable as far as I'm concerned.

            Mr. Mister - Kyrie and Broken Wings

            As far as I'm aware, those were their only hits.

                Everytime You Cry, Talk to Me, 61 Seconds are all good.

                      Winning It All is still arguably the best montage song for sports highlights if your team wins a championship. One Hot Country from the If Looks Could Kill Soundtrack (Richard Grieco) was a childhood favorite.

                                Human League would be the perfect 3-hit wonder with Don't You Want Me, Keep Feeling (Fascination), and Human.

                                  Yeah, have to distinguish between "released as a single" versus "charting in the top 40"...

                                      You gotta include Bruce Willis with Respect Yourself and Under the Boardwalk. The video for Respect Yourself is fun and June Pointer of The Pointer Sisters sings her ass off for Bruce.

                                                        I also thought Mama Weer All Crazee Now was a minor hit for them.

                                                          Those were their only 2 top 40. Maybe Crazed was top 100?

But they had some other songs that got radio play. Cities A Flame with Rock and Roll, Godzilla, Hot Rails to Hell. This would be like saying Zeppelin or Jimi Hendrix didn't have hit songs. Hendrix is technically a one hit wonder in the US. Nobody should ever call him that.

                                                                Foghat actually several top 40 US singles not just two. Fool For the City wasn't one of them.
