One-Hit Wonder Day

The Lone Ranger

So we are drinking...

The Lone Ranger

Today's National One-Hit Wonder Day was established in 1990 by the American music journalist Steven Rosen.

Okay, so we're only talking 15 minutes of fame but there have been some great one-hit wonders over the years – think Always Something There to Remind Me by the Naked Eyes, Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky or Cheryl Lynn's amazing disco anthem Got to be Real.

There's something about those songs that catches the zeitgeist of a moment and brings waves of nostalgia for an era when we hear them again, so why not mix a Lone Ranger, pull out the one-hit wonders you've got tucked away in your collection and celebrate One-Hit Wonder Day in style?
