    I think you will find that ace of base brought more than the one song out.
    So did Dexys Midnight Runners, but theres only one song anyone knows.

    French house music has a lot of one hit wonders. Stardust, modjo, supermen lovers
    house dj's arent one hit wonders, they live off club gigs and touring, not videos and views and charts. Hence why thy're called House, because their pay and popularity is by "living" at the clubs. Not coming at you btw.

    3 of a kind… im embarrassed to say I used to love Baby Cakes lol
    Good shout. That was a good tune.

    I was thinking about it recently. That was the really successful Garage track I think. Then it all fizzled out and guys who got big making Garage moved away from it (So Solid, Oxide & Neutrino and a few others) and it was dead until Jorja Smith last year. Not sure why you don't see more of it, it's clearly popular enough to chart regularly. I'd expect to see it more in the charts during summer at least.

    C4's 'Go Back' was a good recent one.

    One hit in terms of most people who know the genre still only being able to be relied upon to necessarily know that song, even if they
    actually had other top 40 songs. e.g. I'm not putting Aqua when many people know Barbie Girl, Doctor Jones AND Turn back Time. And I'm not putting Wild Thing - The Troggs because many people know Any Way You Want Me, even if they don't know who sang it.
