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 love all kinds of music, and my taste is all over the board depending on my mood. I love hard rock, R&B, adult contemporary, and...electronic music.
2001 was a great year the British electronic band, Dirty Vegas. Their big hit, "Days Go By" rocketed up the charts and even won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. Many people recognize the song from the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse commercial.
The music video is also pretty awesome. It features a guy that decides to dance "from sunup to sunset" in front of a sandwich shop, hoping that lost love returns. He dances every day, for years. He even ages, but the woman of his dreams never shows up. But the guy's dancing is pretty incredible.
Alas, Dirty Vegas didn't do a whole lot to capitalize on their initial success and disbanded in 2005. Maybe if I go out and dance long enough, I can bring them back!
