    Has anyone mentioned this one? Martha and the Muffins, Echo Beach. I can't explain why I love this song, pure 1980 new-wave pop, mosquito-tone guitar, cheesy synth, but I could listen to this all day.

    Lipps, Inc. and Pseudo Echo are indeed OHW for the same song! And each had one more in the top 100. That's probably unique.
    Fastway had another couple in the top 100, in addition to their OHW.
    Point Blank 1 album in the 200, nothing otherwise.
    Fever Tree is right on with their OHW.
    Y&T, as much as I love them, are a No Hit Wonder. Nothing on the Hot 100, but 3 albums in the 200.
    The Only Ones song appears to ahve charted in New Zealand and the UK, but not in any top 40. Looks like it gets covered a lot, though, so I doubt the songwriters are crying.
    M not only OHW, but a number 1 OHW.
    The Open Mind doesn't seem to have charted in the US.
    Autograph hit the Mainstream Rock Songs chart, but not the Hot 100.
    El Chicano 2 in the top 40 and 1 other in the top 100
    Jorge Santana shows no hits of any kind on the Billboard charts, which is odd, because the biography mentions that song in the top 20.

    Blue Bill, you may also like that song's downbeat lyrics. All that upbeat tone and arrangement over a fairly bleak outlook. I usually see that from British New Wave, but I see they're Canadian. They didn't hit the charts in the US, though I recall some significant video airplay.

    Claudine Clark OHW and nothing else.
    Tracey Ullman OHW and one more in the top 100. It's been said that Jackie DeShannon liked her version of Breakaway (the other song) the best. Another one who did some great stuff.
    Aldo Nova OHW and one more in the top 100.

    The original version of Little Bit of Soul is by the Little Darlings. I like it better than the Music Explosion version that made it big.
