50 GREATEST ONE HIT WONDERS
50 GREATEST ONE HIT WONDERS
They became famous overnight. But it all disappeared so quickly. Is it better to have a tantalizing taste of pop fame than to have none at all? Some of pop's one hit wonders are still dining out on sharing a Top of the Pops dressing room with David Bowie while others curse the day the red light went on in the recording studio. But even if they only had three minutes and 30 seconds of fame our poptastic lives would have been so much duller without them. Where would we be without songs like 99 Red Balloons, Can You Dig It, Brimful of Asha or It's Raining Men? In 50 GREATEST ONE HIT WONDERS we celebrate some classic records that sold in their millions. Not only did these acts leave behind some great records - they also left some great stories. 50 GREATEST ONE HIT WONDERS brings these stories together for the first time - and poses the question, just what is the greatest one hit wonder ever?
