Who Is the Best Two Hit Wonder Band?

Two hits. No one ever thinks about the Two Hit Tyros. Once you have your second hit, a lot of people just forget about you.

For some reason, one hit wonders tend to be remembered.

It's hard to define what a One Hit Wonder is, and I imagine it's even harder to say what a Two Hit Tyro is.

Almost all "one" hit wonders technically have a second "hit," because the record company releases another single in the wake of the first big hit and the second song gets huge exposure and airplay and even charts. A bit.

But it's really just an obligatory follow-up release. It's not a hit on its own merit. It's a "timeslot hit," as they used to say about TV, when there were timeslots.

I mean, even one of the ultimate One Hit Wonders, The Knack, actually had a second semi-hit in the wake of My Sharona.

But pretty much I'm the only person in the world who even remembers their "follow-up hit," Good Girls Don't (But I Do). It's pretty much just me and Alan Hunter.

So anyway, if there's already argument about which one hit wonders are really one hit wonders, there's going to be twice as much argument about two hit wonders.

Still.

Easy Andy proposes Golden Earring as the best two-hit wonder band, with Radar Love in the 70s and Twillight Zone/Bullet to the Bone in the 80s.

Are there others?

As usual, this is a thread for discussion and debate only; no dueling or knife-fighting.

Posted by: eleven at December 11, 2019 08:18 PM (M0u+N)

2 Wow, am I really first? :-)

My candidate, besides the great Golden Earring (great topic btw ace):

Climax Blues Band. Even though they were together forever, they had only two semi-big hits, "Couldn't Get It Right" in 1978 and "I Love You" in about 1981.

I love both songs.

18 Another great band with only two semi-big hits:

The Three Degrees. In fairness, one of their hits was backing up another band. Their two were:

- The Sound Of Philadelphia (TSOP), in which they backed up MFSB

- When Will I See You Again, one of the all-time great Philly Soul songs. They actually performed this song for Prince Charles at one time.

30 Another great band with only two big hits: The Fortunes.

- You've Got Your Troubles, 1965 or 1966; and

- Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again, 1971.

They also got tagged as "the Coca-Cola band" because they were hired by the company to do music for their commercials in the late 1960s.

The Motels are an American new wave band from Berkeley, California that is best known for the singles "Only the Lonely" and "Suddenly Last Summer", each of which peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, in 1982 and 1983, respectively. In 1980, The Motels song "Total Control" reached No. 7 on the Australian chart, and their song "Danger" reached No. 15 on the French chart.Wikipedia

Posted by: Oldcat at December 11, 2019 08:23 PM (eoQWY)

37 logprof: The Motels had another less-major hit, "Take The L."

They also did a great song in 1980 called Danger. I love it; it's the perfect blend of new wave and disco.

38 Rupert Holmes.

Who?

The Pina Colada Song.

But also: Him.

Him, him, HIM, what's she gonna do about HIM?
She's gonna have to do without him,
It's him or its me, me, ME, no one gets to get it for free.
It's me or it's him.

Him was a surprise hit, the B-side of the Pina Colada Song and if you play them in order, it's actually kind of dark.

As in, the guy and the girl were debating about breaking up, but stick together. Yay!

And then you flip the disc over and she's cheating on him.

Him is great because the intro verse is so specific.

Over by the window, there's a pack of cigarettes,
Not my brand, you understand, sometimes the girl forgets...

Saw them live at Alex Cooley's Electric Ballroom on Peachtree St in Atlanta. Had second row seats. What a show.

When Quay Lewd (the World's Tallest Rock Star) came out, the first thing he did was ax if anybody in the crowd had any downers. A girl sitting next to me started digging around in her purse and set one on the edge of the stage rather surreptitiously. The bass player's eye's lit up, he walked up and snatched it.

A good time was had by all in attendance.

They also did "Square Pegs" which is probably a hit

They had great lyrics.

I also liked the song "Go on" for the lyrics

I liked him
He didn't like me
He was the greatest
I was only debris
Why do I always pick the ones
who are bad for me

He was coarse
But he was precision
I smelled money
It was by the television when I woke up
If I don't want to keep getting shot
why do I give 'em ammunition?

Oh no, not again
Another one that's crazy
Another one gets obsessive
Another one gets angry
Another one gets dependent
and thinks I have the answers

Another one with a coldness
that should have been a warning
I can't go on, I'll go on
I can't go on, I'll go on

We weren't desperate
I don't know what happened
I tried to change him
He only rarely hit me
Why when so many sweet ones would make it so easy

He was nice
I got brutal
He understood
I didn't kiss him
'Cause if he wants me
he must not be good enough

Oh no, not again
Am I a magnet for losers?
A net for the helpless?
I'm no social worker!
Why do I chase the faces
that always reject me?
Is there something else
that's as fun as running with trouble?
I can't go on, I'll go on

I prefer the English version.

This bothered me for a long time, because I spent years studying German, so that's the one I should prefer, right?

But upon reflection, I realized that what I enjoyed was the German accent, which is far more alluring that merely speaking German.

That being said, death metal is better in the original German.

I met a little girl in Yonkers, not far from New Rochelle
And every Sunday evening within her home I'd dwell
I went to take a little walk through a dark and lonesome place
I drew a rail from off the fence and smashed her in the face

I then took out a piece of rope and I tied her to a tree
I said that I will kill you here if you won't marry me
I then took out my weeping knife, these words I will attest
I said 'if you don't marry me, I'll plunge it through your breast'

I then took out my 44 and I aimed it at her head
I said if you won't marry me then I will kill you dead
Then down upon her knees she got, for mercy she did cry
'Oh Donny dear, don't kill me here, I'm not prepared to die'

But I did not heed her mournful cries, I only beat her more
'Til the ground around my feet was covered with her gore
I took her by her long black hair and I drug her 'round and 'round
And I chucked her into the river that flows by Yonkers town

Go down, go down, you Yonkers girl, with a dark and blackened eye
Go down, go down, you Yonkers girl, I loved you on the sly
These words she said as she drifted by, they cut me to my heart
'Your love has changed, you are deranged, and now you and I must part"

Quarterflash was originally "Seafood Mama".

And lead singer Rindy Ross was exactly that. Yum.

Saw them as their big hit was climbing up the charts for the second time, at the Trout Lake Tavern in Trout Lake, WA, a tiny town just over the Columbia River about 2 hours east of Portland.

I have never seen so much cocaine in one place, at one time, consumed by so many people, anywhere.

But that was in '89 or '90, so most of those people are either dead or in witness protection now.

Herb Alpert had a number of hits, but is the only artist to have an instrumental song and vocal song both go to Number One.

Simple Minds - y'all forgot Promised you a Miracle.

What about The Romantics - What I Like about You and Talking in Your Sleep.

Thomas Dolby didn't do One Night in Bangkok. He did do Hyperactive which was nominally a hit.

Maybe:

Oasis - Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova

Black Crowes - Hard to Handle and She talks to Angels

Counting Crows - Mr. Jones and Round Here

Somebody mentioned Tears for Fears - Shout and Everybody wants to rule the world. They also did Mad World, which got covered for the Donnie Darko soundtrack

Glen Frey (sans Eagles)- You Belong to the City and The Heat is On

Don Henley (also sans Eagles) - Boys of Summer and All she wants to do is Dance, though maybe Dirty Laundry was a hit.

The Pina Colada Song

OK, I'm going to vent. I had to take public transportation to high school (aka a bus) and they played this song incessantly on the radio. Over and over again. And, IMHO, it's not that they're thinking of breaking up, they're both looking around for someone new. Both of them. And let's be honest here: if you're in a relationship, and go out to meet someone else, and it turns out to be your current partner, I don't think "oh, it's you," will be your reaction.

More like "WTH? You're actively dating behind my back? Pack you bags now."

/or whatever people said in the late 70s.

505 I used to play in a band, and we once found ourselves playing in the same town as The Donnas at the short peak of their fame, ca. "Take it Off" and their SNL appearance.

After our gig we stumbled into a club where The Donnas happened to be having their afterparty. Lots of media, paparazzi and all that shit.

The bass player called it an early night, but the other three Donnas came over and asked we band we were in, sat with us for quite a while and shared all the comp-ed trays of shits they were getting with us. They asked if we had a CD and we gave them our demo to play on the tour bus.

518 OK, I'm going to vent. I had to take public
transportation to high school (aka a bus) and they played this song
incessantly on the radio. Over and over again. And, IMHO, it's not that
they're thinking of breaking up, they're both looking around for someone
new. Both of them. And let's be honest here: if you're in a
relationship, and go out to meet someone else, and it turns out to be
your current partner, I don't think "oh, it's you," will be your
reaction.

More like "WTH? You're actively dating behind my back? Pack you bags now."

/or whatever people said in the late 70s.

If you listen to the track "The Wall" on Leftoverture, that's what it's about. The Wall is Christianity in the song. Dust in the Wind is also brilliant, and illustrated the futility of life without Christ.

631 If you listen to the track "The Wall" on
Leftoverture, that's what it's about. The Wall is Christianity in the
song. Dust in the Wind is also brilliant, and illustrated the futility
of life without Christ.



Most of the band formed a band called A.D., I had the album as a teenager. On cassette, of course.

724 "Coverdell was a poser."

You think so even with Purple?


There is lots of really good Whitesnake before the Tawny Kitaen era. It was a blues band, with some of the members of Deep Purple. Sample:

New Coverdale is a poser. Old Coverdale is not.

/actually Coverdale is still doing the crotch grabbing shit he did in the 80's, which now makes him seem like a creepy long haired grandpa. And his coming from someone who loves old Whitesnake.

Can't. Next to "One" by Metallica probably the best song ever recorded.

If I remember correctly, the band "Golden Earring" didn't speak English and the singer sang it phonetically until it sounded like English. Never listen to that song while driving in a pissed off mood. It could kill you.

938 "Human" was a pretty big Human League hit in US too, I think

Yeah, Human League had enough hits they could do a greatest hits album without being laughed at.

Like Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark : "If You Leave" and "Enola Gay" are the famous ones, but if you saw Weird Science then you also heard "Tesla Girls".

Early Bob Seger still works- 2+2, East Side Love Story, Lucifer, Heavy Music, Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, some others. A bit past Night Moves he done lost the thread though.

Eddie Money - never got it. At all.

Vacationed in Cabo in 2002, went to Cabo Wabo, owned (at the time anyway) by Sammy Hagar.

He came in one night, a weeknight in January, got up on stage and started playing with the house band. Then he went around to the maybe 50 or 60 people that happened to be there in the audience.

He was slamming the tequila with the same name as his bar.

He was funny and it was a great time.

But as "Adam and the Ants" he had a bunch on just 1 album Kings of the Wild Frontier

here were three hit singles from this LP, including "Dog Eat Dog" (reaching No. 4 on the UK singles charts in October 1980), "Antmusic" (No. 2 in January 1981) and "Kings of the Wild Frontier" (No. 2 in March 1981, previously No. 48 in August 1980). In addition, "Antmusic" made it to No. 1 in Australia for five weeks. In the UK, both "Antmusic" and "Kings of the Wild Frontier" were kept from the top spot by songs by the then recently murdered John Lennon.

I read somewhere that Take Me to the River paid them more in royalties from being used for the Billy Bass talking fish than from any other recording, by a large factor.

They were pissed off at first, but then, the royalty checks started flowing in, and suddenly, they were big fans of Billy Bass.

Well, the Canadian band Crowbar probably qualifies as a one-hit wonder, with their monster hit "Oh What a Feeling":

https://hooktube.com/watch?v=truzy5iOUKM

Great tune, but totally out of character for the band, which was a boogie and blues band. This song is much more characteristic of their style, and they survived for years doing that sort of thing:

1237 The Knack, also from Detroit, featured Doug Feiger who was Geoffrey Feiger's brother.



I am from the Detroit area, and once convinced a freelance client that the song My Sharona was actually about me. If you know anything about me, that is the most outrageous statement ever, since I'm an only child and my parents spent a lot of money sending me to Catholic school and made sure I did not hang out with musicians as a teen.

1245 dunno. What's a hit anyway?
I'm skeptical that the Talking Heads ever charted top 40 anyway, much less the TomTom club.

Just checked, they had 3 Top 40 hits, only liked Take Me to the River out of the 3.

Once in a Lifetime and Life During Wartime didn't hit top 40. Stupid charts.

I don't know about a ton. But they had quite a few off their first album. Their second album sucked.

Ace has linked Todd in the Shadows for his one hit wonderland in the past and while he is annoyingly SJWish, he also has a series called "Trainwrecords" about albums that are such a mess that they basically ruin the careers. He did Hootie's "Fair Weather Johnson."

1263 War had a hit with "Why Can't We be Friends?"

Kerry Livgren and Dave Hope from Kansas became evangelical Christians, and that busted up the band. Livgren and Hope were part of the band AD.

I heard most of the songs on Supertramp's "Breakfast in America " album at one time or another, but sone that might be from listening to a classic rock station that really liked the band. The title cur, "Goodbye Stranger," and "The Logical Song" were hits when the album was first released, i think.

1284 First in the trivia thread!
Pollard (Michael J. R.I.P.) and I would sit around writing lyrics all day, talking about Bob Dylan and the Band, thinking up ridiculous plots for the movie. Before I left Morocco, Pollard wrote in my book The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. For me, it summed him up. He had this tremendous rebel attitude. He walked around in his cowboy boots, his leather jacket. At the time he was a heavy little dude. It seemed to sum up all the people of that generation who were just rebels. The 'Low Spark,' for me, was the spirit, high-spirited. You know, standing on a street corner. The low rider. The 'Low Spark' meaning that strong undercurrent at the street level

1303 It is transparently clear that the best of the best of the best two-hit wonders are the chanteurs known to tout le monde as Milli-Vanilli. The totality of their commitment to their art was evident even so far as their evocation of the Predator (avatar and icon of mass culture and a rejection of Teutonic cries to get to the chappa)as their mode of self-presentation on the world stage.

Their lyrics speak to us even as they themselves eschew actually condescending to sing them, and in so doing accept the death of the author and their sad recognition of the inevitability of the same. The exquisite pain they voluntarily endure on our behalf looms from every syllable of "Oo, Ou, Ou, I love you.: (the third "ou" being the tell that resonates not unlike the mathematical precision of the golden mean). In the end, they proved to us that we, not they, were the ones not in synch. To their memory we light a votive candle in our hearts.

I've never looked for a video, but if there is one, I'm thinking The Ides of March 'Vehicle' might be a little pervy. I'd like to hear it overlaid on a mashup of Biden sniffing young girl's hair.

1350 I was in early high school for Sharona/Good Girl's Don't. IIRC most of us preferred GGD (I know I did). It's much more up-tempo, and speaks more to a horny 14-15 year old's psyche. Sharona always evokes "Another one bites the dust" simultaneously in my fuzzy rememberings.

Edgar Winter Group had "River's Risin'" which topped at #33 on Billboard, to go with Frankenstein and Free Ride

The Royal Guardsmen had Snoopy vs. the Red Baron, The Return of the Red Baron and Baby Let's Wait (Snoopy's Christmas didn't chart on the top 100)

1381 Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing was their first hit. I have it on my playlist for car rides. The kids love it and are learning the bass and guitar parts.
