LAND OF THE ONE HIT WONDERS: 90'S EDITION
What ever happened to Right Said Fred?
I began wondering that after hearing their1992 hit song, "I'm Too Sexy" on my ipod today, then I realized that the reason I don't know what happened to them is that they only had one hit song.
It was probably pretty clear that this band was not going to have a long shelf life but there were others that looked very promising but, surprisingly, vanished as quickly as they appeared.
This post is dedicated to a few of those wonderful artists who blessed the world during the 1990's with only one great, memorable song. that began and ended their careers:
"Don't Wanna Fall In Love (Album Version)" - Jane Child (1990)
"Wicked Game" - Chris Isaak (1991)
"I Touch Myself: - Divinyls (1992)
"What's Up?" - 4 Non-Blondes (1992)
"Finally" - CeCe Peniston (1992)
"Baby Got Back" - Sir Mix A Lot (1992)
"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" - The Proclaimers (1992)
"Tell Me" - Groove Theory (1995)
"I Know" - Dionne Farris (1995)
"One Of Us" - Joan Osborne (1996)
"Sex And Candy" - Marcy Playground (1998)
"Still Not A Playa" - Big Punisher (1998)
"Chante's Got A Man" - Chante Moore (1999)
And to come full circle, here is Right Said Fred, doing everything but being sexy for the video of their song:
