So did pretty much every other band in this thread - he Boo Radleys had eight!

Probably only one song generally remembered by either though.

3 Colours Red had a hit ?

They actually had 6 top 40 hits

I know but I don’t think they had a major Hit that would make them one-hit-wonder…

Semisonic - Singing In My Sleep

Third Eye Blind - How’s It Gonna Be

The Automatic - Steve McQueen

Surely one hit wonders release a successful single, at best an album of filler (with a failed follow up single) and then disband?

The Boo Radleys had 7 UK Top 40 hits! No way should they be considered a one hit wonder.

They’re not a classic one-hit wonder band, but they did have one slightly naff song that still gets played on commercial radio, set against a decent back catalogue.

‘Beautiful Day’ was the hit i think? Top 20 if i remember correctly.

Serge Gainsbourg - Je t’aime moi non plus

No.1 in the UK, no other hits. Doubt his albums sold either.

Other good songs - a pretty good chunk of his discography.
