50 Greatest One-Hit Wonders

From Oddee.com. Be glad most of these only had one hit. But the list is wrong: some aren't one-hit wonders at all, as noted below.

1. Los Del Rio - Macarena (1996) - I suffered through this song at 57 wedding receptions in the late 90s.

2. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby (1990)

3. Baha Men - Who Let the Dogs Out? (2000) - who let you in... to the studio?

4. Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy (1991)

5. Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen (1982) - The entire band looked like they needed a bath.

6. Joan Osbourne - One Of Us (1995)

7. Nena - 99 Luftballons (1984) - the video cost $18, including tax.

8. The Knack - My Sharona (1979) - Not a one-hit wonder. Their follow-up single, "Good Girls Don't," made it to #11 on the Billboard charts.

9. Meredith Brooks - Bitch (1997)

10. Survivor - Eye of the Tiger (1982) - Survivor had several Billboard hits after this: "Burning Heart" (#2), "The Search Is Over" (#1), "I Can't Hold Back" (#1).

11. New Radicals - You Get What You Give (1999)

12. 4 Non Blondes - What's Up (1993)

13. Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U (1990) - Prince wrote it.

14. Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy (1988) - I had one of those motion-activated singing fish that that did this song. It inexplicably went missing from my office after just two weeks.

15. Minnie Riperton - Lovin' You (1975) - It's not really fair to include Minnie, since she died of cancer in 1979 at age 31. She didn't have time to make more hits.

16. The Cardigans - Lovefool (1996)

17. Soft Cell - Tainted Love (1982) - I think Rihanna made more money from this song than Soft Cell did.

18. The Archies - Sugar, Sugar (1969)

19. Europe - The Final Countdown (1986) - here's a fantastic cover of this song.

20. Lou Bega - Mambo No. 5 (1999) - I detest this song.

21. Aqua - Barbie Girl (1997)

22. EMF - Unbelievable (1991)

23. Eifel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee) (1999)

32. Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star (1979) - the first video MTV ever played. But you knew that already.

33. OMC - How Bizarre (1996) - my wife liked this song, so I bought her the CD. I should've just wiped my ass with a $10 bill instead.

39. Deee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart (1990)

40. Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music (1976) - I had this 45 as a kid. My sister hated it, so I played it even more to annoy her.

41. Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians - What I Am (1989) - at the start of this vid, Edie squats low to the ground as she sings.. trying be all funky and hippie and cool. On a Beavis & Butthead episode, they're watching this vid, and Beavis says, "Hey look, Butthead. She's takin' a dump!" Then Butthead says, "Hey Beavis.. why do they call it taking a dump when you're really leaving one?" I laughed my ass off when I heard that.

43. Gary Numan - Cars (1979)

44. Gerardo - Rico Suave (1991)

45. Toni Basil - Mickey (1982) - not music.. cheerleading
