Artist of the Week - One Hit Wonders

There has been no other decade, in music, like the 80's, when it comes to One Hit Wonders. There was more of them in the 80's than any other decade and the quality of the One Hit Wonders were better, in addition.

Actually, some of the best songs to come out of the 80's or any other decade, for that matter, were One Hit Wonders. It's almost like these musicians put every ounce of talent and strength into one single song and it completely depleted them of any such hope of ever writing another song as good.

This same mystery also may explain why so many bands throughout the history of popular music debut with these unbelievably good albums and then are never able to duplicate that artistry or success.

Anyhow, this week I will be posting videos of artists that had only one big hit and was never really heard from again in the U.S. I hope you enjoy!!!

I'll be typin' at ya later,
