🏆 WORLD CUP: One Hit Wonders 🏆 THE FINAL: POST 265

I guess that depends if you’re strictly separating solo artists’ single hits from bands they’ve had hits with

But like, there are lots of pedants in here so never mind

You’ll be wanting this then.

I just looked up the err… 11 minute version of McAlmont and Butler’s other song, and was a bit disappointed it’s actually only 7 1/2 minutes long. Never listened to the album, but I’m guessing it’s one of those ‘hidden track at the end of the album’ affairs and the hidden track sounds like someone making coffee and cleaning their teeth.

Only Men at Work and Macy Gray for me, but their main ones were so much bigger than everything else that they still count imo. Great list

Would Cups must follow the correct format (winner A v Runner up B, runner up A v winner B etc), no matter the consequences or there will be anarchy.

I can’t believe the New Radicals got out of that group. Such a distant 4th for me.

Yeah that song’s popularity baffles me to this day tbh. And there’s no way it’s better than What’s Up? and Save Tonight. Astonishing.

You disagreeing with me is just confirmation that I’m right.

New Radicals vs 4 Non Blondes would be a good tie in the World Cup Of Artists Where The Singer Wears A Shit Hat tbf

Didn’t realise Corgan was the singer in the New Radicals

Buggles bloke has proper weird kids tv presenter vibe.
