Good morning, l.t.

All the song titles were familiar except #14.
But only knew #s 2 & 6 by artist with title.
Most of the artists' names don't even ring a bell.

Thanks again.

I was the same way. I recognized all but one of the song titles, and I recognized many of the artists (some I had never heard of). I only got 3 of them, The Archies, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Bobby McFerrin. Sheesh! I hated a few of the songs on the list, so I never cared who sang them.

Just a FYI, Billy Ray Cirus's Achy Brakey Heart is not a one hit wonder. He's had several successful songs and currently has a top 10.

Yeah, I think there are few in the list that have had a little more success than a one hit wonder.

And a one hit wonder is not someone with two series television shows, a prime time hosting gig, a contestant on the number one dance contest show, two big screen movies, and the father of the biggest teenie bopper star out right now. That's definitely not the definition of "one hit wonder."

The term "one-hit-wonder applies to HIT SINGLES only, not tv, game show, reality show, paternal credits, nor anything else;

That was fun! 2/ 15 isn't so bad. I could hear the songs in my head, just didn't know anything else.
