In the music industry, a one-hit wonder is an artist generally known for only one hit single.
Click on "Wikipedia" to read what they have to say.
I have listed here under my favourites those that I consider to fit into the category of a One Hit Wonder.
Some may dispute my choice and say some of these artists had other hits
.....maybe it was the only song of theirs that was played regularly here in Australia
...or perhaps, that although the song received airplay, it wasn't actually a hit!
Never the less these are the ones I have chosen as my favourites.
My hardest decision was trying to put them in order of preference.
