Rick Beato counts down his choices for the Top 20 One Hit Wonders of the 80s.



While some might not really be one hit wonders (especially outside the US), it's a pretty good list of songs. Who would you add?

Some I'd consider:

Let's Go All the Way - Sly Fox
Right on Track - Breakfast Club
C'Est La Vie - Robbie Nevil
She Blinded Me with Science - Thomas Dolby
99 Luftballons - Nena
I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz

If you want a longer list -

Eddy Grant also did 'Romancing the Stone' which was not used in the movie at all! Still hear it sometimes on our local 80s radio stations.
Mr Mister also did Broken Wings, which is played to death around here.

Perhaps it's not fair to post this in a "top" list, because I think this is the absolute worst one-hit wonder of the decade. It's so bad I find it fascinating.
