Name five of your favorite one hit wonders

If you need help, check out

okay, i’m going with the 80s…

1. “I Want Candy” by Bow Wow Wow

i actually thought they had another hit? didn’t they have one that was like “do you want to hold me? oh yeah! do you want to hold me? hold me there!” i thought? i remember the video kept showing pictures of like ketchup on french fries and the guitarist had a ronald reagan mask on and the lead singer, annabelle, was dressed as like a chiquita banana girl, and a cowboy or something? anyway, “i want candy” was good. i remember that video too with the heads on the beach. and she really “shocked” a lot i guess back then because of her mohawk hairstyle. she was only a teenager, too, if i remember correctly? but my sisters and i always used to sing this song, and we sometimes still do whenever we are craving chocolate or something sweet or something…

2. “Mickey” by Toni Basil

okay, who canNOT sing this song? all you need to hear is that drum beat and you automatically blurt out “oh mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind, hey mickey!” well, at least my sisters and i do. 🙂 i remember the video for this as well, with the cheerleaders. i remember thinking, well, they’re not the sveltest cheerleaders i’ve ever seen, but they were still pretty fantastic.

3. “Come on Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners

i just loved this song for its melody–i had no idea what it was about or what they were even singing, but i loved the song. what was *so* interesting was seeing the pop-up version of this video. WOW. all the stuff that happened! very interesting…

4. “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades” by Timbuk3

i didn’t so much care for this song, as much as i LOVED the tv show head of the class. i always wanted to be like simone 🙂

5. “Cars that Go Boom” by Le Trimm

okay, my sister and i can do this song and sound *exactly* like the record 😛 i used to be tigra, and she was bunny. i swear, we could probably still do this today! this brings back a lot of memories 🙂

there were tons of songs i wanted to comment on, but i limited to 5. maybe i’ll go back later and add on some of the others i remember 🙂
