One Hit Wonders That Everyone Loves to Dance To
What is a “One-Hit Wonder” anyway? Well, technically a “One-Hit Wonder” is a musical artist or group that had only had one successful chart-topping hit and then never achieved that level of success again. Some of these artists may have an impressive music catalog but, for one reason or another, they still struggled to ever again capture the success of that one song that made them famous.
To us, the only thing about “One-Hit Wonders” that’s important, is that they get you smiling, grooving and getting down on the dance floor! Because, after all) that’s the true measure of a dance song!
There might be some songs and artists on this list that surprise you, you’ll be sure they’ve had more hits, and you’ll rack your brain thinking about the other great songs by these artists… but you’ll surely come up short.
Now, onto the music! We’re pretty sure that you’ll be tapping your toes in no time!

But honestly, the bottom line is, it’s rare for musicians to ever write one chart topping song, let alone a great song that lodges itself deep into our collective experience! We think that everyone on this list wrote great songs that captivated the world. I think you have to respect that, even if the song ended up being their only chart topper!
