|New to the list---question|
I love 1-hit wonders...many of my favorite songs fall into this category. I stumbled across this site and I bookmarked it immediately as a favorite.
I'm looking around for an answer to my question, but I can't find it. It seems like an obvious one, but I don't know. What qualifies an artist to be out here?
Like I said, it sounds obvious, but I notice some listings out there that don't fit the "obvious" answer. For instance, I see Lynn Anderson's "Never promised you a rose garden," and well, she isn't a one-hit wonder.
Doing a quick search I found these two items, "Billboard currently ranks Lynn Anderson among the top ten most successful female country artists for all-time record sales" and, "Lynn Anderson has racked up eight No. 1 records, 18 Top 10s, over 50 Top 40 hits, and 17 Gold albums." Both of these really disputing her status as a one-hit wonder.
