    Heard Blur on the radio the other day, and had a few other ones come to mind.

    Blur- Song 2
    Spacehog- In the meantime
    Counting blue cars- Dishwala

    Many years ago my ringtone was ''Sex and Candy'' by Marcy Playground.

    I'm :eek:ldman: so I don't know the first three, but I do know Sex and Candy (I actually have that MP CD).

      I enjoyed the ringtone until one day I got a call from Mom. After that I went with something else.

      A-ha - Take on Me. I've always liked that song and the video is solid as well.

        Astley wasn't a one hit wonder. He was a 2 hit wonder.

          In my Rhapsody, I have a bunch of 90's rock songs:

          Brother Cane -- "And Fools Shine On"
          Default -- "Wasting My Time"
          Eve 6 -- "Inside Out"
          Harvey Danger -- "Flagpole Sitta"
          Powerman 5000 -- "When Worlds Collide"
          Screaming Trees -- "Sweet Oblivion"
          Semisonic -- "Closing Time"
          (Spacehog)
          Toadies -- "Possum Kingdom"
          Virgos Merlot -- "Gain"

          I actually broke my hand while in a mosh pit at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival back around 96 while they were playing this song. Don't ask me how a pit got started at that show and that venue but, at the time, I was not one to turn down a chance at throwing my body around with reckless disregard. After the song was over, I walked back to my friends and fiancée, out of breath. My fiancée went to hold my hand and she noticed that my hand was swelled like a balloon. I didn't feel much until the next day. Hairline fracture in my metcarpal. Luckily, it was my right hand.

            Kind of depends on your frame of reference (translated: :eek:ldman:
            Seems like the '70s had some of the "best" ones.

            Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods - Best 70's outfits IMO with collars that should have had their own elevation sign:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qlK9TJvuSk

            Paper Lace - sounding excellent live :

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryVh9BuwOs4


            And the androgenous 2 hit wonder Sweet (I am going to scour the Goodwills and Salvation Armies for the Bass players' outfit):

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmbEuRzlhIs


            Enjoy - you young whippersnappers
            Now get off my lawn!

              At first I thought... Ray Rice doesn't have a band does he? And then ... Oh...got it.

                +1. It's also a nice quote.

                Way too quick with that Astley defense.

                  Wow. Hard to imagine a ruckus breaking out to a song from Dishwala. Sorry to hear about your hand, but the main thing I got from this post is that you're a lefty:thumbup:

                    Closing time is a classic. Saw Default live once , and they weren't too bad.

                        Blur is the antithesis of being a one-hit wonder.
