NATIONAL ONE-HIT WONDER DAY

National One-Hit Wonder Day is celebrated annually on September 25.  This day is a day to celebrate all of the musical artists/song that became known from one Top 40 single.

You may have your favorite and if so, listen to it today! 

Or….

You may choose to listen to some, or many, of the other one-hit wonders on this music-filled day.

Listed below are just a few of the well known one-hit wonders from days gone by.

  • 1955 – “Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)” by The Penguins
  • 1963 – “Six Days on the Road” by Dave Dudley
  • 1968 – “Tip Toe Thru The Tulips With Me” by Tiny Tim
  • 1969 – “Smile a LIttle Smile for Me” by The Flying Machine
  • 1970 – “One Tin Soldier” by Original Caste
  • 1970 – “The House of the Rising Sun” by Frijid Pink
  • 1972 – “Hot Rod Lincoln” by Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen
  • 1083 – “Puttin on the Ritz” by Taco
  • 1988 – “Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin

Do any of these bring back memories?

I don't know. I'd have to look at a more current list. Most of those are before my time.

One that I hear that's always too difficult to get off my mind afterwards is the 80s song Mickey :)
