Are you for real?!  
The other day, I was watching VH1's countdown of the greatest one hit wonders of the 80s. You know what was number 1?

Fucking "Come on Eileen"!!

I loathe that song with a passion! I thought it should've been "I Melt with You" (which was in the top 10), but Come on Eileen can suck it hard, lol!

So, this makes me pose a question: What are some of your favorite one hit wonders?

unfortunately, my definition of one hit wonder doesn't quite gel with the interpretations of the US as a whole. most of my favorite "one hit wonders" had plenty of good singles, but we were too dumb to pick up on it

devo, modern english, soft cell, gary numan, the church, real life, etc. i guess real life DID only have 'send me an angel' so i guess you can count me in there.

otherwise: the passions- i'm in love with a german film star? FADE INTO YOU, pump up the volume? m/a/r/r/s only had ONE SONG, at best, so does that count? 96 tears!!!

also, most italo 12'' singles: total one hit dance floor wonders.

My sentiments exactly! The Church is one of my absolute favorite bands ... and while I love "Under the Milky Way", I think they had far better songs.
