3 Songs From One-Hit Wonders That You’ve Never Heard of But You’ll Love
While many one hit wonders are remembered for their one hit song that put them at the top of the charts, many of them do have other songs that are worth listening to. While there have been some notable failed follow ups (like “Put’em On The Glass” from Sir Mix A Lot, who’s best known for “Baby Got Back,” and “Dance The Kung Fu” from Carl Douglas, known for “Kung-Fu Fighting) many so called one hit wonders do deserve to be listened to more. Here’s a count down of songs from artists that are pretty good and even maybe better than their hit.
“The Sun Always Shines on TV” by A-ha
Mostly known in the US for their number one single “Take on Me,” A-ha managed to score another hit with the one above, most notably in Europe. The Norwegian pop band did not find the same amount of success with this single, however than their previous one but it is definitely worth listening to.
“Houdini” by Foster The People
Known for their viral success with the song “Pumped Up Kicks,” the Indie-pop band Foster The People seems to have not been so lucky at the charts with their new songs. The band does have great songs that are worth listening to that are just as unique as “Pumped Up Kicks.” Even though the song shown is great, it can really be said about both their albums.
“Chasing The Sun” by The Wanted
This British Boy band, that is often compared to One Direction, made it big with their song “Glad You Came.” The band has not had the same amount of success as their counterparts, but they have released more songs, being hits in the UK. This is one of the rare cases were the other song is better than the hit.
