Stumbled into this little compilation of “Best One-Hit Songs of the 2000s“, and I’m happy to say I’d only ever heard two of them: Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet (can’t help thinking that Prince would have murdered this one), and Wherever You Will Go by The Calling.
Now when I say I “heard” them, it’s not that I ever listened to either of them all the way through — no, it’s just that a few momentary notes happened to stick in my brain when the songs played in some store or other, or blasting out of some weenie’s souped-up Honda Civic at the traffic light.
Small wonder that all the above are one-hit wonders. Completely unmemorable at best; totally shit otherwise.
And now we return you to our regular programming.
