And earlier stuff... In the Summertime -- Mungo Jerry (still a great windows-down car song) Rings -- Cymarron Timothy -- The Buoys (gruesome) DOA -- Bloodrock (also gruesome, great teen angst memories) 96 Tears -- ? and the Mysterians
and lastly, can it be a one-hit wonder if the song never became a hit? I loved these guys (Human Switchboard) but they never caught on. Still love them.
I vaguely remember the Archies ROFL
Come on Down to my Boat Baby was a good one.
96 Tears Gene Pittman right???
96 Tears - ? and the Mysterians, who are still performing.
Archies - vocalist was.......are you ready for this? Andy Kim
and you asked about Ichycoo Park. That was the Small Faces who had several hits and two members went on to much better things: Ron Wood and Rod Stewart
Founder of the Dyslexic Clique. Dyslexics of the world - UNTIE!!
The Small Faces weren't one-hit wonders by any stretch. They were one of the finest bands of their era with many singles in the charts. Also, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
One-hit wonders are more along the lines of this -- a great pop song that charts high, then we never hear from them again.
Although I will say this: a nice living can be made off one big hit.
