    Well, someone sure did. Might as well have been him. I withdraw my nomination. And sit corrected.

    Good one! The original, by Gus Cannon, blows those cats right out of the water. Cannon's Jug Stompers:

    Spirit In The Sky is always the first one I think of when someone starts a thread like this. As I read on I realized I know a lot more, but it is always Norman Greenbaum that hits me first. I'm going to stick with that, I guess.

    This tune made it onto the soundtrack of a Hal Hartley film (Amateur) so I consider it a hit...

    Commercially unsuccessful group but some absolutely amazing guitar work on the album “Two Lane Highway”. Yeah, it’s me again, waxing rhapsodic over Two Lane Highway. Overlooked, under appreciated. Pedal steel and Tele dream.
    The group that made Aimee is not the one that did Two Lane Highway. When I heard it I couldn’t believe it was PPL.

    Our HS band loved this song. So easy to play. Farfisa organ. They even let me play the lead guitar part.

    Speaking of great, wonderful, world-class, best-in-the-business artists whose one-and-only hits were their worst songs:

    Looks like he's rock'in a Dano bass. Oh, am very familiar with this one. I'm old too!
