"Boogie, Oogie, Oogie" by Taste of Honey. The very definition of a one hit wonder.
Infectious fuzz and absolutely throw-away lyrics. I kept going back to these guys in college. Also, I don't think they were that good so they made making music feel more accessible than some of the better bands. Ha.
Neds Atomic Dustbin: Grey Cell Green.
And to the direct point of the OP, probably The Verve fits the bill. They were supposed to be awesome, but they got sued by the Stones and never really found their feet after that. I was never a fan of their music, but I think they qualify as a band that just never lived up to expectations.
The Replacements too, but they were awesome despite not being embraced by Top 40.
'80s video gold: Kim Mitchell - Go for a soda
I'm not aware of anything else they did, so, to me, a one hit wonder.
Just seen this thread for first time... I heard TooTune Jenny for first time also today... great song. It was like a America does The Smiths kinda vibe
Dont know if this has been posted before. I loved it when it came out as backing for a Levis ad in UK.
Wicked guitar player, singer and songwriter.
He had lots of hits in his native Canada, though Soda is probably the biggest.
I saw him in a rock bar in Pr. George, BC.
I met him and Peter Fredette at a pawn shop I managed.
Cool with cool icing!
Kim is the only rock player I ever saw who had the fluidity (legato feel) of Alan Holdsworth.
He has a great musical sense of humor, too!
That is awesome! He can really play, but never really took off here. And I have to say that video is one of the funniest. He must have been an interesting person to meet.
I thought "Got No Shame" was their "hit"?
Anyway, I think he's playing lead for Alice Cooper now.
Don't think that one charted, "Fools" was #1 on Billboard rock chart for six weeks according to their wiki. I loved this song when it came on the radio, but never really heard from them again. Pre-digital era, tracking an artist down was an artform.
Smoking in the boys room Brownsville Station.
I saw those guys opening for Queen!
He was nice, as was the great Peter Fredette.
Kim is tall!
I'm 6'1" and he towered over me.
He's a big star in Canada, and rightfully so!
