Brimful of Asha had at least one other hit

errr given the band was called Cornershop, it would suggest they didn't

ALL of those are amazing. I want to go back now, first to a Firkin pub and then to a provincial club in a Ben Sherman colour block shirt and my proper shoes (no trainers!), drink Jack and Cokes and have it!

Brimful of Asha was really a Fatboy Slim tune, so i don't think it should count.

Bombfunk MCs - Freestyler is my contribution.

Ok, to put in a new table with some of the suggestions

1. Your Woman - White Town
2. Spaceman - Babylon Zoo
3. Altogether Now - The Farm
4. Swamp Thing - The Grid
5. Hot Stepper - Ini Kamoze
6. Breakfast at Tiffanys - Deep Blue Something
7. How Bizarre - OMC
8. Steal My Sunshine - Len
9. In The Meantime - Spacehog
10. Jump - Kriss Kross

I think some of the aforementioned are from the 80s (Tiffany) and maybe even the 00s (Toploader) I think... not checked though.

Some have more than one hit (Chumbawumba, Hanson, Cornershop, Blind Melon).

Good work though so far gang.

the following are out for not being one hit wonders:


rednex - cotton eye joe (they had another hit "old pop in an oak" that got to #12
TMBG - birdhouse (Boss of Me got in the charts at some point, Istanbul didn't break the top 40)
eagle eyed cherry - save tonight (he had "falling in love again" and another song that got into the top 40)
weezer - buddy holly (they've had loads of hits)
dee-lite - I really don't like that song, sorry
chumbawumbe - tubthumping (they had "amnesia" too - not sure where it got to but it was definitely on a Now compilation)

"dee-lite - I really don't like that song, sorry" I don't recall that track, but if you are ruling it out just because you don't like what is for many a great song then I can save you as they had a second top 40 hit in November 1990 (Power of Love at 25), so are not a one hit wonder anyhow.
