It's National One Hit Wonder Day! Remember these?

Probably not all of them.

You know how you get sick of songs and you text us and bitch about it?  Well, we (dj's) get sick of those songs WAAAYYYY before you do, trust me.  Probably a big reason why a lot of my favorite songs fall in the "one hit wonder" category.  Or, even the "stiffs" category.  You might not know what that is.  That's a single that doesn't really do all that well.  Maybe gets played for a couple of weeks and then disappears.  

Now, for the list that nobody asked for, my five favorite one hit wonders of all time!

Yaaaaay.

This first one actually went top ten on the modern rock chart, and you still probably never heard of it.

This was kind of a stiff...only hit #25, but you might know it from the "She's All That" and "The Last Kiss" soundtracks.

I know you know this gem.  Number 6 on the modern rock chart, but hated by Beavis and Butthead.

K's Choice "Not An Addict" is one of those songs where everyone goes, "OOOH...I love this song" when they hear it.  Big one...hit number five.

Could NOT get enough of this when it was out.  Still sounds great.

It went number one in 1996.

And really, there's so many more of these, it's hard to narrow it down.  What are some of your faves?
