    That is a tough one as there have been quite a few one hit wonders

    so I going with two that I will sing along with

    Macarena - Los El Rio

    Who let the Dogs Out - Baha Men

    Honorable mention but something that I would never sing the words out loud too as it really is embarrassing when someone walks in on you

    I'm to Sexy - Right Said Fred

    Not a band that immediately comes to mind, but this is their only Top 40 hit, peaking at #9.



    Grateful Dead- Touch Of Grey

    The thread's been done recently but there's always other candidates. Edwin Starr had another top 40 hit with "25 Miles" but of course this was the big one.

    Sort of gruesome but I always liked the song.

    This was a very original song, never heard anything quite like it before or since.
