Today, September 25th, is apparently National One Hit Wonder Day.  Those songs that you're like "oh my god, I LOOOOVEEE this song" - but in reality, you aren't really sure who sings it, when it came out, or anything other than the fact that you like to sing it at the top of your lungs when you hear it.

If we want to get technical, according to

These songs make us sing whether we should or not. We know all the words even though we don’t know why. They’re the songs groups of friends will burst out in chorus together and make memories, too. Movie soundtracks love them. Wedding dances love them. We all love them!


The real kicker is, the artists or groups only made us swoon once. After that, they faded away. Some continued with moderate success. Others, however, were never heard of again, musically.

You can check out their list of some of the more popular one hit wonders by using the link above, but when it comes to my list, the following immediately pop into my head:

  • The Macarena
  • Stacy's Mom
  • Mickey
  • Closing Time
  • Tubthumping
  • Come On Eileen
