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 is a great resource if you want to reacquaint yourself with some of your favorite music. Every era is represented going back to the 1950s so there is likely to be something for everyone. Add one or two to your workout or walk mix.

Enjoy this short walk down memory lane. I sure did!

    You guys are too funny! Thanks for all the wonderful comments.

    "Rappers Delight" is a very good friend's favorite song at Karaoke so I, too, know all the words. She does it EVERY time we are out for a sing-a-long night on the town.

    Do any of you watch "Parenthood" on NBC? Did you notice that "Funkytown" was referenced in one of the new episodes this season? It's the code word among the parents with kids who have such busy lives that it's necessary to schedule their alone bedroom time.
