    I recognized only 3 of the songs. I liked the slow dance songs. Not into Edie Brickell, though.

    I cant' vote for Jeff Healey as a one hit wonder because he had several hits here in Canada (he does a great live show too)

    Sherriff was a great song but like Daffy said it was origionally released in 1983 so I dont' want to vote for that so...

    My vote is for Eddie Brickell.

    I only remembered three of the songs. Angel Eyes would have to be my favorite song from that group.

    of course me being a huge safire fan, i do remember this beautiful ballad. It was a huge pop hit for her, she also co-wrote the song.

    the spanish version is just as beautiful. she won a ASCAP award for writing the song and for the song being one of the most played song on radio in 1989.

    But i wouldn't call her a one hit wonder, true this was her highest charting hit, but she's also had 5 other crossover/pop songs that made the billboard top 100 charts. her music was played on both top 40 and dance stations across the usa and she conquer europe, japan and latin america.

    all her releases were big dance hits in both the clubs & dance radio - even today she is extremely popular in the club scene.

    Belle Stars - "Iko Iko"
    Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians - "What I Am"
    Don Estus - "Heaven Help Me"
    Kon Kan - "I Beg Your Pardon"

    I've sung "Iko Iko" - damn good song!

    "What I Am" was covered by "Ickle" Spice, Emma Bunton a couple of years ago.

    I thought I was the only Kon Kan fan left in the world. I think of a girl I really liked in high school whenever I listen to them. I have all three albums, though I think losing Kevin on vocals after "Move To Move" had a negative impact. Great pop stuff at any rate.

Later I bought Eddie Brickells solo work, but it didn't have the same magic to it unfortunately.
    Oh man, I remember all of those songs but the reason for this post is "What I Am." It is a GOOD song, a POPULAR song, NOTHING wrong with it at all, until the band you are in has to play it two times per night, four nights per week for eight weeks. Then you find that the song is in fact EVIL Or maybe that is just me. I *STILL* can't get that guitar lick out of my head!

    I remember the better-known half of these. Jeff Healey had a couple more hits here in Canada, including a cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". He runs a bar in Toronto now (Healey's) where he performs.

    That "Iko Iko" has the loop of a woman's voice going "whoo", then a man's voice going "deh", right? Or at least "deh" is what it sounded like to me, maybe he's shouting "dance" or "yeah" or "debt". Even if I got that wrong and it's not on this song, you might still know the loop I'm talking about. Anyway, that loop appeared in other songs from that era as well, did it appear here first? Is it a sample from something?

    I only remember 4 of them I guess I either wasn't listening to much radio back then or all the partying in 1989 fried some of my brain cells

    Me too! I only recall 4 of them Kon Kan, Eddie Brickell, Sa-Fire, and Sheriff. I could probably recall the rest with some hard thinking, but 1989 pretty much sucked anyway (when compared to other 80s years...).
