    one unfair one hit wonder was the verve for "bitter sweet symphony".

    Urban Hymns, No Come Down, A Storm in Heaven are ****ing amazing CD's.

    They made much better music than they were given credit for... Amazing Bass lines.

    I remember NBA on NBC used to play Haddaway's song during player introductions. :confused:

    Like I wanna hear "what is love" while Jordan approches the court. :confused:

    promos... player introductions.... thank god it was just the tracks and not the vocals in the back.

    I'd have nightmares seeing Ewing's face with "baby don't hurt me" in the background. :(

    I think these were one hit wonders, but I'm not a big music guy so I could be wrong:

    Primitive Radio Gods - "Standing Outside A Broken Phonebooth With Money In My Pocket" (it's either "pocket" or "hand" I don't remember)

    Deep Blue Something - Breakfast At Tiffany's

    Hoobastank - The Reason (At least I don't know of another song that made it)

    Crash Test Dummies - Mmm Mmm Mmm

    I'll list this because in America they barely got a hit out, but in Europe they're huge........

    Westlife - Flying Without Wings

    The only time I've heard that song has been in Layer Cake. I really liked it though.

    Hoobastank had "Running Away" and "Crawling in the Dark" before "The Reason". They also released "Out of Control" and maybe some more that I was unaware of, just none of those were really "Top 40" oriented songs. They played them all the time on rock stations around here though.
