Yes I did. I didn't go out of my way to purchase it on cassette, it was a pawn shop. Two dollars, why not.

Actually, determining a true one-hit wonder is sometimes difficult. Americans may only be able to name one song by A-Ha, to choose an example, but they had a long and successful career in Europe-- even playing the world's largest outdoor concert ever at the time! Someone poasted this in a previous thread of this nature:
