    I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow irked me to no end, as did Edie Brickell's What I Am. I couldn't stand Don't Worry Be Happy either, heh. Ugh, I could go on.

    one hit wonders

    I totally agree with the Bobby McFerrin nominations.

    Most of the one hit wonders I hated were the 90's. My least favorite was "Life is a Highway" song, I forgot the guy's name.

    Tom Cochrane did "Life is a Highway". I thought it was a catchy little tune, made me want to learn to play the harmonica (never did though).
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates who said....'I drank what?'.

    The worst???????? In my humble (and sometimes wrong opinion) the WORST WORST WORST was Video Killed The Radio Star by The Bugles. That song drove me to drinking and I still haven't drank enough to kill that song permantley. Just that high pitched dual monotone singing makes me wanna go jump in front of a fast moving VW Beetle. And get this!!!!! I was a DJ at the time and HAD to play that piece of garbage!!!! Does anyone feel sorry for me??? (at least buy me another beer???) ....

    Maybe not really a one hit wonder, but it was a hit and I still wonder why! ;-)

    Walk Of Life by the Dire Straits

    Boy did I hate that silly tune!

    LOL! Leave it to you to point out innuendo, girl!

    As for annoying one hit wonders, I agree with the masses. "Don't Worry Be Happy" is a worthless song! They should destroy the master tapes for that song.
    Now I know the perfect kiss, is the kiss of death.

    Don't Worry Be Happy drove me insane!!! And if it wasn't bad enough that we had to hear it over and over, like a broken record...everybody started wearing the blasted Don't Worry Be Happy tshirts

    TTriggs, I like OPP, I even have it on my computer so I can listen to it every now and then

    yeah, Whip It, gotta agree with you there.

    and that song, "Kukoo Kitty, talks about the boy from NY city."

    it always bothered me when he's talking like a girl. sounds creepy.
    (sorry, some people prob like that one. lol)
