M
Pop Muzik
In the summer of 1979, this fun song by Robin Scott was blaring out of car speakers everywhere and became his only chart single...a #1 record.
2
The Monotones
Book Of Love
One of the most recognizable oldies of all time went Top 5 in 1958.
3
Taco
Puttin' On The Ritz
While this song also lands on the Most Annoying list too, there is no denying how big a song this was in 1983 as hit peaked at #4.

Eiffel 65
Blue
Also, on the Most Annoying list, but super familiar and a #6 hit for this Italian group in 1999.
5
Bobby McFerrin
Don't Worry Be Happy
It was played to death in 1988, but still went to #1 and was the catch phrase for the end of that decade.
6
Mungo Jerry
In The Summertime
One of the great summer songs to date and still garners a ton of airplay. This made it to #3 in 1970.
itunes

Argent
Hold Your Head Up
A great classic rock staple that still sounds great on the radio. In 1972 this soared to #5 on the charts.
8
OMC
How Bizarre
A true one-hit wonder from New Zealand went all the way to #4 in 1997.
9
Nena
99 Luftballoons
One of the iconic songs from the 80's and came in both English and German versions. In 1983 it almost made it to #1 before stalling out at #2.
10
The Floaters
Float On
Maybe when your first single is loaded with astrology, your chances for a follow-up are limited? That was the case with this #2 song in 1977.
11
The Proclaimers
I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
This was slmost a no-hit wonder, but was resurrected for the film Benny & Joon and brought this 1988 song all the way to #3 in 1993.
12
Phil Phillips
Sea Of Love
While Robert Plant's version with the Honeydrippers is far better, this was Phil's lone hit in 1959 and went to #2.
13
Crazy Town
Butterfly
The band had a short shelf life at Modern Rock, but this #1 pop song in 2001 was their only chart hit on the Hot 100
14
The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown
Fire
One of the more bizarre one-hit wonders in history...a #2 hit for Mr. Brown in 1968.
itunes
15
The Elegants
Little Star
The lyrics are oh-so-familiar and still living on oldies radio. 1958 saw this go all the way to the top of the charts.
16
Zager & Evans
In The Year 2525
Another weird one-hit wonder, and even more peculiar #1 song. The Beatles must have taken a break at this point of 1969.
17
The Silhouettes
Get A Job
Kind of corny in a Sha Na Na kind of way...but we all know the song. In 1958 it went to #1.
18
Biz Markie
Just A Friend
This would not have made the list until that Heineken commercial launched it back into the spotlight. It just cracked the Top 10 at #9 in 1990.
19
Us3
Cantaloop
This has to be one of the coolest one-hit wonders. In 1993, this jazz-flavored hip hop creation peaked at #9.
itunes

Joan Osborne
One Of Us
This Grammy award winner went to #4 in 1995 and has been covered many times, including by Prince.
