    I was wondering what is your favourite one-hit wonder, maybe we could compile a list of the best one-hit wonders ever.
    I was just thinking of that Bran Van 3000 song drinking in LA and Breakfast At Tiffany's, any others you can think of??

    Dont even try and call eagle-eye cherry a one hit wonder!!! Admittedly that was probably his biggest commercial success but he has released a lot of material (4 or 5 albums I think..)

    lol! not a particularly big fan but I have got 2 of his albums! You've probably heard a song called 'falling in love again', which was the follow up single to 'save tonight', and was probably his only other major chart hit..

    Bran Van 3000 aren't one-hit wonders. Astounded was on MTV for ages. In the video you just have this couple going through clubs and a city while snogging.
    I think the song has been on so many soundtracks and adverts. You've got to listen to it.

    It's on this great album:

    I guess so but she had quite a few hits at the beginning of the 90s and end of the 80s, Buffalo Stance, Manchild and more recently, she had that Man's world song. That was pretty crap though

    Ohmygosh, love that song (Bran Van 3000). "Steal My Sunshine" was great and was out around this time. "Brim full of Asha" was also very cool.

    She released a song with eagle-eye about 2 years ago aswell, called 'long way round'. Don't think it received much airplay though..
