One Hit Wonders

The one hit wonder that stands out in my mind is the British folk trio Prelude's version of Neil Young's 'After The Gold Rush' (c. 1974). No instruments - vocals only.

So many of these from the early - mid 90's I had totally forgotten about. There were a lot of them back then as the whole alternative scene started to play out.

Actually I have the album where Bruce Wooley and the Camera Club made that song even more famouse than the Buggles!

Eric
And Bruce Wooley's version was the original, co-written by Woolley along with Horn and Downes, while the Buggles' was the cover!

Another case where the original is vastly better than any cover. :aok
