    Madness also had a pretty big hit in the U.S. with "It Must Be Love" (it's in TV commercials all the time), "One Step Beyond", and "House of Fun", so, not so much one hit wonders.

    Thomas Dolby also had more than one hit (Europa and the Pirate Twins, Hyperactive, One of Our Submarines, Abilty to Swing), granted none as ingrained into pop culture as "She Blinded Me With Science", but still considered hits.

    Kahlenrules, I think that the "Saturday Night" song you're thinking of is by the Bay City Rollers. As far as the U.S. goes, one hit wonders (yet they managed to get a 1970's Saturday morning TV show out of it).

    Both Gary Numan and Soft Cell seem to have their one hit wonders pop back up every 10 years or so. Cars was also covered by Fear Factory with Gary actually singing on it. Tainted Love has popped up on club charts several times with remixes to fit the sound du jour.

    that 70's song "Get Off" is by Foxy

    Now, some of my favorite 1 hit wonders are -

    Black Velvet - Alannah Myles
    96 Tears - ? and the Mysterians
    2 of Hearts - Stacy Q
    The Gentleman Who Fell - Milla

    I loved that song.. and loved that album.

    One other band that I loved from around the same time was Icehouse and their song "Electric Blue." Yet another fun album that I loved, but they never hit it big here in the States.

    Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve - not just a favourite one hit wonder, but one of my favourite songs ever and my absolute favourite video.
    I'll Stop the World & Melt With You (title most likely wrong) - Modern Romance
    Sea of Love - Phil Phillips
    Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile) - Steve Harley (my & Mr. Rattus's song)
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Anyone remember the song "The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun" by Julie Brown? I loved that song!
