I can't believe how many of those I remember! I loved "Let's Go All the Way" and "Don't Disturb This Groove".

I looked up Toni Basil who did "Mickey" in 1982 after she came up in a discussion with a friend.

She's 67 this year (23 days younger than my dad) and was 39 when the song came out - couldn't believe it

When I posted a thread about one hit wonders, there was a lot of blowback because artists have a different number of hits depending on the country. For example, David Hasselhoff has zero hits in the USA, but he's got a few overseas.

My friends and I had a minor obsession with that song in high school.

Some parts of Europe still enjoys ukelelian music so it don't take much to get a hit.

Polka music is also big time stuff in central Wisconsin.

Not sure if it qualifies as a one hit wonder, but I recently rediscovered this old track and was instantly catapulted back to the days of green desktops and white bees.
