Hello Kat..wow...this is awesome...I love the songs you chose and the artists...and I have sang many in contest and never went anywhere with them, mainly because they are "obscure" to most..nice to know this forum is tailor made for just these One Hit Wonders..If I know one can I add it to the mix other than what you have posted? I am off to work shortly but I will bb in the a.m. and I will get busy with your list...I can't wait to sing these again for the right audience. Goodnight for now and God bless us each and everyone.

Edited reply by qtkat_2000GOLD

I just want to say how much I appreciate you all joining me in this forum. I've always preferred the "underdog" and many of these songs have been the "underdogs" on SingSnap..... The mere fact that we are promoting some awesome songs, that might otherwise, be forgotten, by most, is accomplishment enough. The variety is exciting and some are discovering songs they have never heard or re-discovering songs they'd forgotten. I've had a couple of comments from those that didn't know many of these songs were in the SS library. So, other than some confusion, because I want to do too many things at once, lol, I think, overall, this is turning out very nicely.
Thank you all.....

Ok, we need to stick to the posted list of songs, from here on out. These are great examples of One-Hit Wonders, but I want to have songs recorded from the list before we do additional ones. If there's a song you want to record,that is not on my list,PM me with the suggested song or songs, and I'll probably add it to the next song list update. After it's posted on the One-Hit Wonders list, then you can post your recording in here. I'll add the two above to the list, when the page flips, and we'll add your recordings to the play list then.
Thank you so much.
