Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #112 - 4/16/03
One-Hit Wonders: The '70s - 1975-1979
It only makes sense to follow last week with some one-hit wonders from the second half of the 1970s. This quiz was a joy to put together, as some of my favorite songs of all time are listed here. 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, Peter Brown and Betty Wright ) or duet pairings with one superstar and one person who never hit the charts again (Suzi Quatro and Chris Norman). I have also not included solo one-hits by performers who have been part of successful groups (Ace Frehley, Ian Matthews, John Sebastian). I also tried not to include intentional novelty hits, with a few exceptions.
1. "Chevy Van" (1975)
Bonus: "Dance Across The Floor" (1978). Who played keyboards on this song?
Super Bonus: "Wham Bam" (1976). Who played keyboards on this song?
