9 Best One Hit Wonders of the 80's That You Will Never Forget ...


I personally wasn’t born until 1989 so I missed some of the best one hit wonders of the 80’s.

Since I wasn’t around when many of these songs came out, my parents made it their mission to make sure I was cultured in good 80’s music.

They would blast these songs and many more in the car driving down the road, or in the house while we were cleaning!

So hopefully my list of the best one hit wonders of the 80’s are right on target!

1. Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come on Eileen

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

With the electric beat and big hair of the 80’s, who would have thought that this Celtic style song would make a lasting impression!

Especially with a bunch of guys singing in overalls!

I mean Come on Eileen, you can find a better-dressed guy!

Despite the overalls, Dexy's Midnight Runners ran their way to #1 on Hot 100 Chart, making it one of the best one hit wonders of the 80’s.

2. A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (so Far Away)

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

After watching this music video, I feel as if the room is spinning.

A Flock of Seagulls may have flopped in their home country the United Kingdom, but here in the States, I Ran (So Far Away) became a hit!

I Ran made it to #9 on the Hot 100 chart and can still be heard playing on 80’s radio stations across the country.

3. A-Ha - Take on Me

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

A-Ha's Take One Me is another one of the best one hit wonders of the 80’s that made it to #1 on the Hot 100 chart!

Whoever would have thought you could fall in love with a comic strip man?

A-Ha's upbeat music and the creative music video paid off for them to be remembered throughout the years!
