A band or singer that everyone forgets about after their hit song runs its natural course into obscurity, because they can never get back onto the charts again. Most one-hit-wonders are that way because either they can't write their own songs, or their own songs are crap.
Crossover songs and artists are sometimes mistaken for One-Hit-Wonders, because listeners outside their genre don't know who they are. Anyone unfortunate enough to make this mistake is likely to be taken to task by numerous members of the artist's following, because it takes quite a good artist to pull off a crossover hit.
Your own songs just aren't going to cut it. Go find a hit song that no one else has covered in at least 20 years, so the teen audience will think it's new, and maybe you can be a One-hit-wonder.

The Electric Prunes
The longest-lived sub-genre of music. New Wave's roots can be traced back to 1969, when David Bowie first released the song "Space Oddity". In 1973, when Bowie re-released "Space Oddity", the precursor to New Wave, punk rock was born. Throughout the mid-1970's, Punk bands such as The Ramones, Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Sex Pistols and The Clash were discovered. During the disco backlash of 1979 and 1980, Punk rose to the forefront, while other bands like Blondie, Talking Heads, R.E.M., U2 and Devo began what would become the initial New Wave movement, which was capped off in 1981 when Billy Joel mentioned New Wave in the song "It's Still Rock & Roll to Me". During the early 1980's, there was a lot of band evolution taking place, as Bauhaus broke up, reformed as Tones on Tail, then reformed as Love and Rockets, while Mick Jones of The Clash formed Big Audio Dynamite, The Sex Gang Children split in half and became Culture Club, Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode, formed Yaz and then Erasure, and The English Beat split into bands such as Style Council, Modern English and Fine Young Cannibals. It was during this time, ...more...

One of the greatest Chinese Restaurants in the world, New Ho King has been delivering exquisite Chinese food for Torontonians since the beginning of time.

Title of the 2006 hit of Robbie Williams.
And now Robbie with his new hit Rootbox!
The best state in the country, but only because Princeton is in New Jersey. Princeton is the most incredible town ever, where people are rich, chic, snobby, and fabulous! What else could you ever ask for? Everyone from Princeton knows they are better then everyone else, but we live the life of privilege and everyone else is just jealous. Everyone goes to private school (we have some of the best private schools in the country) and is taught at a young age to strive for the best and taught the elitist mindset. Preppy is the essential dress code, with any other tacky/trendy options looked down upon. Not to mention, if you don't own J.Crew, wear ribbons in your hair/sevens/rainbows/something from Tiffany’s at all times/own more than one Vera Bradley bag and wallet and a Longchamp/Hervé Chapelier bag, you might as well be in Siberia. No one in Princeton is nice or friendly, and we like it that way.
Turning off Nassau onto Witherspoon Street (in Princeton, New Jersey), you will hit an old preppy favorite, J. McLaughlin. Be sure to stop here if you plan to buy into the full "Ivy League Look" — they carry all the classics, from men's pastel and embroidered corduroys to ribbon belts and monogrammed women's handbags.
Just past Coach is the Cotton Company, which is the only Lilly Pulitzer retailer in Princeton and thus a great place to pick up a sundress before lawn parties or to find a few preppy items in any season
