Oftentimes, lightning only strikes once for many singers and bands. My A-Z Challenge for 2014 will focus on those glorious "one hit wonders" spanning the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. Some are my favorite songs, others are just plain memorable (for better or for worse). Join me in celebrating these 26 one hit wonders in pop music!
I was 17 years old when I heard The Jeff Healey's Bands, "Angel Eyes" play on the radio. After this bluesy, country song became a hit, I remember seeing Jeff Healey in the movie Roadhouse. So I always associate this talented singer/musician with that movie.
When he was only a year old, Jeff Healey has both eyes removed due to a very rare cancer. Unfortunately, cancer would eventually claim his life in 2008 at the young age of 41.
"Angel Eyes" is his only big hit, but it's a wonderful song. It's romantic and poetic, and it was on the US Charts for 22 weeks in 1989.
