Sing for Absolution – It's National One-Hit Wonders Day

Sing along to your favourite one-hit wonders

“I am the one and only…
Nobody I’d rather be”

We’ve all got our favourite one-hit wonders – a classic song that everyone knows. These massive hits caused a stir when they were released and we expected great things from the artists… who pretty much disappeared after this one song.

Of course some of these one-hit wonders aren’t really what I’d call hits – Teletubbies I’m talking to you – and of course you’ve got the many X Factor winners who leaped to the top of the charts with their first single, only for us to forget them and their names several months later.
