I know I'm a geezer but really? The best she can come up with of all the songs ever? Don't Worry Be Happy and The Macarena?

Granted I'm too ancient to know a lot of her choices (probably a good thing considering the ones I do know) but I can do better in my sleep.

Here's a few of mine:

Sea Cruise
Who Put the Bomp (in the Bomp Bomp Bomp)
Chantilly Lace
Little Star
96 Tears
Incense and Peppermints
Teen Angel
Angel Baby
You Talk Too Much
Mother-in-Law

That's ten.

Good list. Whoever made the original list has probably never heard any of them.

I gave up reading the article after the first caption called the group Dexy's Midnight Runner, rather than Runners. I figured the article would be as lazy as its editing. There are so many great one-hit-wonders from the 60s and 70s, but In-a-gadda-da-vita is my favorite.

Another purile list by some green kid that thought life began the day she discovered the mall. Where's Zager and Evans?

The Big Bopper had more than one record, but I'm not sure how they define hit, here. A #1 song or cracking the top 40?

That's the thing with those "one-hit wonders," Cap'n. A lot of them cracked the top 100 at least once after their hit. So is a Top 100 song a hit?
