 One hit wonders? Didn't EMF have a few hits? There was one called "I believe" if my memory serves me correctly. Also, how about "Wordy Rappinghood"(think that's how it's spelt) by the Tom Tom Club, that was a mega-hit...Oh, and didn't Edwyn Collins have a few his with Orange Juice?

 The EMF and Tom Tom Club songs were very secondary type hits--at least not nearly as big as "Unbelievable" and "Genius of Love". And Orange Juice had absolutely no hits in the US.

 speaking of unforgivable omissions, where is the "top 40 greatest reality tv moments" countdown?! i wish they'd made that one a full 100.

 I'll go you one better, Andrew -- Orange Juice never even had a record released in the United States, and they weren't exactly hit machines in the UK either ("Rip It Up" was the only big one there). So I think Edwyn can still be called a two-hit wonder myself... : )
