Sound Off: Favorite 1-Hit Wonders

Wow, an actual non-“Where In the Hawaii” post. Amazing right?

So I thought I’d send us into the weekend with an extra hop in our step since many of y’all seem to vibe on the topic of music. How this particular subject (1-Hit Wonders) came about was really quite simple. I was recently updating the playlists on my iPod and kept coming across all these musicians and bands that had a song or two that I really liked but didn’t really want to waste precious hard drive space to house their entire albums to. So finally, I just created a playlist called “1-Hit Wonders” and threw um all in there. I won’t tell ya everything I got in that playlist because I wanna leave that for you guys to come up with in the comment area below, but here are some of my favorites!
Biz Markie – “Just a Friend”

Yeah, I guess I used to listen to a lot of rap back in the day. Haha!

So how ’bout it? What/Who are your favorite 1-hit wonders???
