One-Hit Wonders: The '60s

Welcome to our series of One-Hit Wonders quizzes! Let's start out with some one-hit wonders from the 60s. I give you the song, you provide the artist.

For our purposes, a one-hit wonder is defined as an artist that had one, and only one, Top 40 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. I did not include one-off superstar duet pairings (Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder) or duet pairings with one superstar and one person who never hit the charts again (Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin, Michael Jackson and Siedah Garrett). I have also not included solo one-hits by performers who have been part of successful groups (Frida, Ace Frehley, John Sebastian, KC, Ric Ocasek, Jane Wiedlin). I also tried not to include intentional novelty hits, with a few exceptions.

1. "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" (1961)
2. "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" (1963) .
3. "Denise" (1963)
