September 25th is National One Hit Wonder Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready to crank up
that music because it's National One Hit Wonder Day! Oh yes, they
need love too! Let's get right into celebrating National One Hit
WHY IS THIS A
Well, these musicians did make a hit and you probably would
remember the song if you heard it again, but most people forget about
these one hit wonders. Even though they like that one song, it just
seems to get buried under all the new ones they hear. But today is the
day to brush off these old, one hit wonders and bathe in their musical
excellence! Don't let that one hit die; be proud of these one hit
wonderful musicians! And I'm sure you all know what a one-hit
wonder is, right? It's just a band or a musician who only really has a
single song that rises up in the charts and everyone seems to like. But
why does that happen? Were they in a certain mood at the time and it
was just a stroke of good luck that they wrote the right lyrics and put
it to the right beat? Or was it that they were coached by their record
company to put out a certain type of song, which found success, but
then they didn't want to continue making that kind of music?
don't really know but sometimes it's because the musicians' lives are
cut short. But it's our job to help them live on through their music
and keep listening to these great hits! I'm sure you've all jammed out
to Mambo No. 5, Monster Mash, Tainted Love or Tubthumping at one point
or another... and hey, don't be ashamed of it! Pump up the volume!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, why don't you start
out by searching online to find a giant list of one hit wonders? Scan
through the list and pick out songs that you remember liking. Then head
over to YouTube and start jamming out to them. This might spark some
old memories of what you were doing back when these songs were popular.
But if you're feeling brave then why don't you dive a little
deeper into their music? Sure, their other songs might not have made it
very high in the Billboard charts but there might be some hidden gems!
So check out the album that their hit song was on and maybe even check
out the most recent music they've put out. You might be surprised how
much you really like their other songs!
And if you really want
to help keep these hits alive then support the artists and buy some of
their music. Go on iTunes and download that one hit you love or buy
their CD if you want. If they truly only ever had one hit that made it
anywhere then they're going to really need and appreciate every sale
they get! Have a great day and enjoy those hits!
