One hit wonders

Always wondered how some bands can produce great songs but nothing else of note.

This was Procul Harem's very first recording.

Totally forgot about White Town...That was about twenty years ago, wasn't it?

Utterly soppy as shit, but I really like the simple bass line...

I know what you mean about the bass playing. It has a certain quality to it.

From 1972:

 

Although I'm a bit perturbed that Jimmy Savile was probably goosing up some young girl off screen while this performed. ¬¬

Indeed, even if you were going to say Suzanne Vega was a one hit wonder you would need to be picking Luka which was No. 3 in the states. 

Although does point to the differing criteria on one hit wonders, here in the UK it's generally (or certainly was) more a novelty record thing, in the US it was a more broader term that Reef may well fit into, one big hit but not a lot else. Having said that they can't make their minds up as Rick Astley often gets mentioned as a one hit wonder in the US, despite having 2 number ones and 5 in the top ten, which is pretty good going in the US.
