One hit wonders have been a part of the music industry for decades and are some of our favorite songs of all time. Some famous one hit wonder bands barely existed long enough to record their lone hit, while others continued to work hard for years after their brief moment at the top. Some revel in the notoriety and fame their hit continues to bring them, while others see that hit as the very thing that killed their career. Any way you look at it, the industry is littered with one hit wonders. Here are your top 10.
10. Right Said Fred – “I’m Too Sexy”
“I’m Too Sexy” was the debut song from the English group Right Said Fred, and enjoyed massive success both in the USA and in the UK. In the UK it reached number two on the charts, and held on to that spot for a record six years. In the USA, the song reached number one on the charts and was a massive hit. Unfortunately for Right Said Fred, this would be their only hit on the US charts as their next highest song on the charts peaked at number 76. Despite being a clear one hit wonder in the USA, the band actually had fairly decent longevity on the British charts.
