One-Hit Wonderful – A one hit wonder quiz!

One-Hit Wonderful, Video

No Comments

Normally in the one-hit wonderful section, you find a series of great (and not so great) one-hitters, set to give you nostalgia or hopefully, to let you in on some lost pop classics. Today is a little different as I found a quiz! 34 clips of one-hit wonders blurt out of the speakers… but how many can you name? Be warned, some of them are not strictly one-hit wonders, but that shouldn’t stop your fun. I got 25 right (not bad I think). How well are you gonna do? Answers can be found over the jump.

    26! Honest!
    And before any Spandeau Ballet / Sinead O’Connor / Madness / Faith No More fans complain – yes, these were obviously one-hit wonders in the US.
