Forgotten Music: One-Hit Wonders

The other day I linked to a post about the best and worst one-hit wonders.  Quite a few songs weren't mentioned, mainly (I suspect) because they were so old.  Here are a few of them.  If you're as old as I am, you can probably think of a few dozen more.

The Monotones: Book of Love

Silhouettes: Get a Job

Jody Reynolds: Endless Sleep

Tony Bellus: Robbin' the Cradle

Joan Weber: Let Me Go, Lover

Thurston Harris: Little Bitty Pretty One


  1. Where is that older post? It seems impossible to recall one hit wonders without the Monotones...

  2. I put in a link, Todd.

  3. Cool. Yes, that initial list is pretty sad.

    Doris Troy and "Just One Look"?

  4. Indeed, sadly, Miriam Makeba probably never dented the US charts again after "Pata Pata"...
