I'm going to have to go with one of my all time favorite songs Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. In case any of you don't remember, there was a legal controversy with The Rolling Stones who ultimately received all royalties for the song.




You beat me to it. I was going to post this song. That's a great video; the singer's actually running into people on the street. They're not actors, it's not rehearsed. They wanted it to be as real as possible. Kind of a jerk move, but not as bad as the Rolling Stones giving the band permission to sample a riff that they (The Stones) didn't even write, and then demanding 50% of the royalties, then 100%. Bittersweet, indeed.

I'm stunned no one posted this yet:

Maybe because Eurythmics had many hits, and not just one?

Now that's a tough one. So many to choose from that I'd love to hold up as The One. Really though? I think this one is the final winner for me. It was top of the charts at a pivotal time in the future of our World. The right mix of introspection and celebration for how everything in life as we'd all known it....simply changed overnight.



It's a great song. But I think the Scorps had a pretty good run of hits."Rock you like a hurricane", comes to mind.
Here's a goofy one by "M" One hit wonder, One letter name.

A few bands have been posted that have had more than 1 hit, I suppose in some cases they are one hit wonders depending on the country.
Anyways here is another:

Radar Love by Golden Earring

I have tried eight times to get the code in right for this video...
IGTFU!
It has no v= in the code.
