Fun Memories of the One-Hit Wonders From the 70’s [Videos]
Want to step back into the “way back” machine again, and go back to the 70’s? Let’s do it. I came across a great website the other day, I Love Classic Rock. And, this post went back to the classic one-hit wonders of the 70’s. Wow, I had forgotten. So many hits by artists that were a huge part of our lives 40ish years ago, but they basically had only one hit. Let me take you back there.
Gilbert O’Sullivan certainly did one this with his hit. It’s all about misery and perhaps one of the saddest and most depressing tracks ever written.
The article talked about “five minutes of fame?” One and done, so to speak. But the article went on to say “that doesn’t seem to be true for these artists. Because if anything, they’ve proven that being a one-hit wonder isn’t always a bad thing especially when your songs are impressively enduring you’re basically laughing all the way to the bank.”
This song was written as a parody, and the folk rock group was actually surprised it struck gold and achieved commercial success (it sold over a million copies) since it was nothing more than a joke at first.
How about Kung Fu Fighting?
