National One-Hit-Wonder Day
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
No matter what music era you recall, there is one song you almost always remember that can put a smile on your face the moment the melody starts playing in your head.
When I noticed today is National One Hit Wonder Day, I Googled my favorite era: 1980s. Check out this list I found www.onehitwondercentral.
There are three songs on this Top 10 List that I remember as being favorites during my dancing nights back in college. Until now I had no idea that the artists would sing no more. I've listed three of my favorite One Hit Wonders in order of my preference.
"Rappers Delight" by Sugar Hill Gang
"Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc.
"Turning Japanese" by The Vapors
