You read that right, folks. It’s time to celebrate all those artists that entered the spotlight just as quickly as they left it. Many new artists who nab themselves a radio smash hit just can’t sustain that kind of premium songwriting and execution for the long term. Stardom can most certainly be fleeting.
But today, on National One-Hit Wonder Day, we celebrate those bright and ephemeral stars of the music industry. Anyone recall a little ditty called “I’m Too Sexy” or the beloved “Ice Ice Baby?”
They gave their all to for one chart-topping song, and for that we thank them. Where are they now? Who knows…but at least we still have their singular musical contribution to continue to grace the airways.
