When it's time for another vapid thread who else can you turn to but Zippyjet? We've featured underrated One Hit Wonders and your all time favorites. Well, time for the dark side! Those 1 hit blunders oops I meant wonders from hell!
In no particular order, let me take you on an excursion to the Twighlight Zone of crappy music. Without further ado here they are by decade.

1950's


  • The Wayward Wind----Gogi Grant
  • Volare (Original Version)----Domenico Mondugno (even a song Tony Soprano could hate!)
  • Singing the Blues----Guy Mitchell
  • Tammy----Debby Reynolds
  • Alley Oop---Hollywood Argyles
  • He's Got The Whole World in His Hands----Laurie London


1960's
  • Sukiyaki----Kyu Sakamoto
  • Dominique---The Singing Nun
  • The Men in My Little Girl's Life----Mike Douglass
  • They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Ha----Napolean XIV (One of my ultra bottom feeders!)
  • MacArthur Park---Richard Harris (Ironically, I really like the 4 Tops Version)
  • Smile a Little Smile for Me----The Flying Machine (sucks, that this abortion had to have a group named after aviation!)
  • Barefootin---Robert Parker
  • The Birds and the Bees---Jewell Aiken?



    1970's (This may take several posts!)

    • In the Summertime---Mungo Jerry
    • Sweet Mary----Wadsworth Mansion
    • Gimme Dat Ding----The Pipkins (Another bottom feeder)
    • Ma Belle Amie----The Tea Set (probably the first Gay song)(and another super puker)
    • Rose Garden----Lynn Anderson
    • Are You Ready?----Pacific Gas & Electric
    • Help Me Make It Through The Night----Sami Smith
    • The Desiderata-----Les Crane
    • Chick-A-Boom----Daddy Dewdrop (Another abortion)
    • Put Your Hand in the Hand----Ocean (another bottom feeder)
    • One Toke Over the Line----Brewer & Shipley (drug music)
    • Precious and Few----Climax (makes me think of anything but)
    • Gone---Joey Heatherton (keep on going and don't come back)
    • Popcorn-----Hot Butter
    • How Do You Do----Mouth and MacNeal (Ikea Rock meets Gay)
    • Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues----Danny O'Keefe (I did too after listening to this swill)
    • Convention '72----Delegates (Novelty shit where one splices records together to talk is so corny)
    • Beautiful Sunday---Daniel Boone (why fuck up Sunday?)
    • Dead Skunk-----Loudon Wainwright III (This Weasel is from $$$$$ why put roadkill to song?)
    • Brother Louie----Stories (Longhairs who can't sing if their lives depended on it!)
    • Dancing in the Moonlight---King Harvest (More drug music)
    • The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia----Vickie Lawerence (set women back 50 years)
    • Playground in My Mind----Clint Holmes ( I heard he was booed in Atlantic City when being the opening act for a major league comedian back in the late 70's. I wonder why?)
    • Smokin' in the Boys Room----Brownsville Station (A couple of dudes who can't sing smoke and schtupp in the boys room.)
    • Beach Baby----First Clas (try 69th. class)
    • I Can Help----Billy Swan (But in this artist's case mental retardation can't be helped)
    • The Night Chicago Died----Paper Lace (more fay music that is beyond ripe)
    • Hooked on a Feeling----Blue Swede (turned a classic into a laughable farce and that beginning sounds like a poor kitty puking hairballs)
    • The Lord's Prayer-----Sister Janet Mead (Keep Religion out of rock please)
    • Shaving Cream---Benny Bell (straight from hell and not funny)
    • Feelings----Morris Albert (has fouled the genre of lounge singers worldwide)
    • Get Dancin'-----Disco Tex & The Sex-O-Lettes (bad disco was a Soviet plot to destroy the free world!)
    • Junk Food Junkie----Larry Groce (Gross)
    • Mah Na Mah Na-----Piero Umiliani (the seamier sounds of Benny Hill)
    • You Light Up My Life----Debby Boone (words can't describe what I feel about this shitter)
    • King Tut---Steve Martin (keep your day job/mediocre comedy)


    I'll take a break for now...but the 80's and beyond are coming right at you with a bullet!

    The "remake" is better. That's for damned sure!   ( I guess this is a two-for-one remake.)

    I actually bought that 45 rpm single in 1971 when I was ten years old. It was cool then.

    Buster Poindexter also had "Hot Hot Hot". That makes me want to chuck my radio out of my bedroom window.

    The number one One-Hit Wonder: the Macarena. That song STILL gives me nightmares. My elementary school forced me to dance to that song in Grade 1 (it was 1996 at the time, when that song became real popular).

    Those are my top three choices for "vomit-inducing" one-hit wonders.

    You think you got it bad? That song was a hit in Latin America a full year before it was known up there in your neck of the woods!

    Though I never really minded it... brings happy memories, actually.

    Wow, I think that song was popular maybe 3-6 months here in N. America/Canada.

    I think another One-Hit Wonder that bit the dust was Lou Bega's Mambo Number 5. I used to love it, now I just think it's kind of lame.

    Chumbawumba were one hit wonders in the US, but have been around for a very long time in the UK. That song was actually pretty fun for a while, but got overplayed to no end.

    Popcorn makes a good ring tone

    Two one hit wonders that were 1 and 2 on the charts in 1996 that I hope never come back are:

    That song was so bad and got so many complaints from Mental Health organizations that it was generally pulled by the radio stations shortly after it came out.
    There have been a lot of bad OHW's since the 1950's. There used to be back in the 1960''s and into the early 1980's a California based DJ, 'Dr. Demento' , who specialized in novelty and bad songs and had a syndicated program for radio stations across the USA of his umm...selections.
