    "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora

    "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora because I can still audioize it in my head.
    Mel & Kim did not get my vote because I believe "Get Fresh For The Weekend" was their actual first hit, not "Respectable".
    Those 2 along with "F.L.M." are my favorites all played in a row!
    Here is last year's upgrade.

    "Tarzan Boy" and "Der Kommisar" are tied, with "The Promise" just one vote behind!!! As always, these poll results are fascinating!

    I voted for The Promise by "When in Rome". That song always warps me back to the late '80s. Infact I was just thinking about this song.

    That was such a tough choice!! I went for "The Promise" and seeing the number of votes, it is far more known than i thought! I actually also love "Life in a Northern Town" and "Catch me, I'm falling". I actually like most songs on that list!

    And again, here in Austria 2 of these were definatley no one hit wonders. I lost count about how many hits Nena had and Mel&Kim were Top Ten with "Showing Out", "Respectable" and "FLM" as far as i remeber. My Dad always thought they are so cute.

    I went with "Life in a Northern Town". Many good memories go along with it and hey, I'm from a Northern town!

    99 Luftbaloons by Nena, as long as it is the German version.

    Re: Favorite One Hit Wonder Song

    The Kid's American by Matthew Wilder followed Break My Stride into the Billboard charts at US#33. None the less, Break My Stride was a good song.

    Did you know Matthew Wilder wrote the song Reflection, which was crappy Christina Aguilera's first hit? Do you still like him now?

    Tarzan Boy by Baltimora I've always loved that great Italo Classic.

    Post Re: Favorite One Hit Wonder Song

    I really had difficulty with this one. There were two on that list I would have picked, but since I could only pick one, I did any many miny moe and it landed on "Break My Stride" by Matthew Wilder. My other choice was "Tarzan Boy" by Baltimora.

    Re: Favorite One Hit Wonder Song

    I went with Mel & Kim's "Respectable" from This list. Catchy dance tune. I think M&K's "Showing Out" got more airplay in Phoenix at the time of release, but both are great tunes. I pretty much dig anything put out by Stock, Aitken & Waterman.

    Re: Favorite One Hit Wonder Song

    I would dispute certainly that "respectable" is a 1 hit wonder for Mel and Kim. Here in England Mel and Kim are seen as very distinguished icons and somewhat an icon of the 80s. "showing out" was a massive hit of theirs, but also nobody has mentioned "Rockin around the christmas tree", their christmas hit. Have you guys in America heard that? The lyrics are amazin and so funny in places, not only showing Mel and Kim's musical talent but also their awesome sense of humour.

    After much deliberation I voted for "99 Luftballons", but again in europe it was not really a one hit wonder. Go to a German speaking country in particular and you will find a massive following for Nena who had many other hits. I just chose "99 Luftballons" because I love the song. It's one of my favourites. I sure hate the English version though because I think the whole sentiment Nena was trying to bring to the song has been lost in translation. The English version is rubbish dont you think?

    Anyway, what you guys say to the idea that all the rest of the songs in this poll were one hit wonders (arguably Kommisar wasn't). I reckon the majority of them are but maybe that is just my ignorance. What do you guys reckon?

    I had to go with When in Rome as that was our wedding song. If we ever get divorced then it will move to the bottom of the list.

    Re: Favorite One Hit Wonder Song

    This was way too hard to choose... I finally settled on my choice of:
    "99 LuftBalloons" by Nena
