"Listen to the Radio" by The Pukka Orchestra, a Canadian band who tended toward the novelty end of the spectrum, but released this cover of Tom Robinson/Peter Gabriel's tune that ended up being a top 20 hit (and their only single to chart) here.

You can't be a One Hit Wonder if you never actually had a hit.

Driver's Seat got as high as #15 on the top 40 countdown. I think you need to crack at least the top 10 to be considered a hit.

I don't think Martha and the Muffins (or M+M as they came to be known) qualify as a one-hit wonder, as they had one more significant hit, Black Stations/White Stations (which made #2 on the US dance charts and is their only single to crack the Billboard Hot 100 at #63).  They had more minor charting hits (mostly in Canada) with Danceparc, Cooling The Medium, and Song In My Head.

Oh man....this/these songs were big when we just started going to bars, the chicks loved it. I was already too cool for The Kings (if it wasn't Joy Division then don't even talk to me), but the hooks here are undeniable.

Back in my day (by crackey!), being in the top 40 was a hit.

A One Hit Wonder should disappear after their hit. Lowe hasn't had a huge career, but he has worked steadily, makes good records, and has written one enormous song for the world.

This is the first time I've seen a link stating "One Hit Wonder Day". If this turns into a "Woofday Wednesday" type deal, I approve. I love all things music.

I would say he's a perfect one-hit wonder because 99% of humans don't know that. To most people, he DID disappear. I also think having 1 top 40 hit is the only qualifier for the OHW club.
