Today Is National “One Hit Wonder” Day


This is the day we pay tribute to those recording artists who became famous in the U.S. by having only one big hit that got stuck in our heads. “Rolling Stone” says some the most popular one hit wonders include "Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba, "Come On Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners, “My Sharona” The Knack, and "Take on Me" by A-ha.

One way to observe National One Hit Wonder Day is to think of how many one-hit-wonders you can name. You can also debate what actually defines the label!

A few years ago, Rolling Stone magazine put together a list of the biggest one hit wonders of all time. At number one? A-HA's "Take On Me"
