Fade to Grey - Visage. an engimatic quality to this one, i remember it vividly, playing at the roller skating rink as a kid (showing my age)

I s'pose someone's mentioned Kids in America? What about Oh Mickey - Toni Basil! still a catchy tune. good call on Safety Dance

one of their side-kicks Phil Judd did Counting the Beat with a band called the Swingers - great tune and vid.

"Take on Me" and "Don't Dream It's Over" are both easily in my top 10 of all time, so while they may not technically be one-hit wonders, I tend to think of them that way.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. At the very least, they also had "Hip Hop Hooray" and "Feel Me Flow."

I got carried away but I hope this brings back memories for the older bunch,
and that the younger of you enjoy these blasts from the past.

Hot Chocolate, 10cc and Sweet were not one hit wonders, neither was Tinita Tikaram though they may have had only one hit in a particular country.

I actually thought calling Tanita Tikaram a one hit wonder was being generous.
