One hit wonder is the name of the artist ( solo or band ), who has a career marked by only one hit !!
Do you know of any such example?

My fav one hit wonder - Silver Chair 'Tomorrow' (1994), was done when he was 15, I believe with his younger bro and a friend for a school project. The songs about a poor man letting the rich man stay with him, but the rich guy won't stop complaining, wanting to leave for a hotel, will wait for tomorrow. Not really a one hit wonder as such, but consisted to be as they made good reviews but lower sales with their other songs, and this was the only song people tend to remember as it was all over the radio. They also broke up, regrouped and then disbanded for good.

The 4 Non Blondes were a one hit wonder, although the singer (I guess her name is Linda Perry) is quite successfull as a songwriterup until now.

For the first band I have never heard ! tongue.gif
The second - It is well-known actor Lou Diamond Phillips! The original song is performed by "Los Lobos", and they certainly are not 'One Hit Wonder' ! wink.gif

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.
