60s, 70s and 80s one-hit-wonders

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The thread on 70's and 80's anthems had me trawling through YouTube and in the process I came across some long forgotten one-hit-wonders that, I feel, had some merit. So for your pleasure (or pain) here is my contribution.

    60's 'Sukiyaki', Kyu Sakamoto

    70's 'The Lone Ranger', Quantum Jump
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hchOYs_d_Bw

    80's ' 'Turning Japanese', The Vapors
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEmJ-VWPDM4

    I'm not saying they were good, just pleasantly memorable.

    Any more?
