The votes are in.
Last Friday, with a suggestion from Scottser and a €50 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite one-hit wonder.
You answered in your many dozens creating a sole-hit strewn playlist for the ages.
But there could be only one winner.
Rapper’s Delight by The Sugarhill Gang
“Whether or not it’s the best one hit wonder, it’s definitely one of my favourites and possibly the most important.”
Swords Of A Thousand Men by Tenpole Tudor
Gary Flood writes:
“Men larking about in a field with weapons and chainmail. And a horse.
Gotta be Tenpole Tudor and “Swords of a Thousand Men”. Innit?”
Mary’s Prayer by Danny Wilson
“A sublime piece of soul/pop that immediately brightens your day when it comes on the radio. Hard to believe that they didn’t follow it up with more hits, although writer Gary Clark went on to write for a host of others, from Natalie Imbruglia to Loyd Cole.”
Nick says: Well done Frscondo and thanks all.
