(This list includes only the primary credited artist, not any featured artists who failed to chart again.) Amii Stewart • “Knock on Wood” • April 1979Let’s hope this put a few bucks in composer Steve Cropper’s pocket. All it takes is one hit to solidify a band’s place in music history forever. Kyu Sakamoto • “Sukiyaki” • June 1963The Japanese title was Ue o muite arukō, or “I look up when I walk.” A Taste of Honey took it to No. 3 in 1981.
This is just a preview! Mr. Acker Bilk • “Stranger on the Shore” • May 1962 A clarinet instrumental that is certainly one of the least-remembered Number Ones of all time.

Ini Kamoze • “Here Comes the Hotstepper” • December 1994This somehow found its way into a Robert Altman movie, Pret-a-Porter.
Mark Dinning • “Teen Angel” • February 1960The song that started off the teen-death craze of the early 1960s. 1: To Be With You: embed Embed. Jan Hammer • “Miami Vice Theme” • November 1985As near as I can tell, that was the last instrumental No. 1 hit in the Hot 100 era.

Ernie K-Doe • “Mother-in-Law” • May 1961K-Doe was a stalwart of New Orleans music in the 1950s. Dexy’s Midnight Runners • “Come On Eileen” • April 1983Combustible mastermind Kevin Rowland fired the band’s drummer in the middle of the video shoot; he’s only visible in the first half of the clip. 1 hit for any British band, although many more would follow. It’s funny how tightly bunched they can be—there were only two between 1994 and 2006, then three in 2006 alone. 1 in 2012. Larry Verne • “Mr.
The Tornados • “Telstar” • December 1962 Our third and final one-hit wonder instrumental of 1962.

1 hit for any British band, although many more would follow. Crazy Town • “Butterfly” • March 2001This was the third single off Crazy Town’s album The Gift of Game; it’s a wonder the label let them get that far, since the first two did nothing at all.

The Hollywood Argyles • “Alley-Oop” • July 1960The chief Argyle, Gary Paxton, was also the leader of Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s Crypt-Kicker Six. 1 in the U.K., making Z&E the only act to be pure one-hit wonders both here and in Great Britain. But she could still fit into her old cheerleader’s outfit from Las Vegas High. Toni Basil • “Mickey” • December 1982Basil, who started out as a choreographer on Shindig, was pushing 40 when this song came out.
Mr. Big - One Hit Wonder Album. Stewart has been a pretty big star in Italy, where she has lived since 1982. Alan O’Day • “Undercover Angel” • July 1977Warner Bros. created a special label, Pacific, for records by their staff composers who also performed. This was the first one. There was actually an album that came out in 2001 called Green Tambourine: The Best of the Lemon Pipers. Anita Ward • “Ring My Bell” • June 1979She was a schoolteacher before this song hit; it’s always nice to have something to fall back on.

Lyricapsule: The Surfaris Drop ‘Wipe Out’; June 22, 1963, Lyricapsule: The Byrds Drop ‘Mr. Baby” • March 1962Delbert McClinton blows harp on this, and it was when Channel was touring with the Beatles that McClinton famously taught John Lennon to play the harmonica. It’s been all downhill from there. Hugh Masekela • “Grazing in the Grass” • July 1968Masekela lost the best pop instrumental Grammy to Mason Williams’ “Classical Gas,” which would be on this list if not for the fact that it peaked at No.
But Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods had the hit with that song here in the U.S. of A. Billy Swan • “I Can Help” • November 1974Despite being a one-hit wonder, Swan has a huge reputation in the music world, and has been a longtime sideman for Kris Kristofferson and a member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band.

M • “Pop Muzik” • November 1979It peaked at No.

Sheriff • “When I’m With You” • February 1989It was recorded in 1982, and the band broke up in 1985, but for some reason a DJ started playing it in 1988.
