One-Hit Wonderful: The Mike Flowers Pops Orchestra – "Wonderwall"

One-Hit Wonderful, Video

This lava-lamp cover of “Wonderwall” by The Mike Flowers Pop Orchestra could have easily gone into the Under The Covers section, but somehow it fits better in the One-Hit Wonderful slot. This tune, a pastiche of all those cheesy-listening LPs you see in charity shops up and down the country, appeared slap-bang in the middle of Oasis’ imperial period, thus making it a true one-hitter. The band disappeared off the radar after this hit; still, it allowed frontman Mike Flowers to joke, “1998 was quite a big year for me, I appeared on Blue Peter and Through the Keyhole”.
