Top 5 One Hit Wonders Of 1989

1989 was a big year for me. I made some stupid mistakes, but it was a fun year. It was the last year of the 80's. I can remember it hitting me hard on new years eve that I would be saying goodbye to my favorite decade. My best memories still remain in the 80's. Everything seemed exciting, fresh, and new. It was by far the most fun part of my life. The music was incredible, and the movies were as well. No decade can hold a candle to the greatness of the 80's.

1) Kix - Don't Close Your Eyes (I was really into this band at the time. I had just discovered Kix the year before with the album Midnight Dynamite thanks to a friend at the time. It was really kinda weird hearing this on the radio. Kix was one of those bands that got labeled a hair band, but I didn't think they deserved that tag. They were better than 99% of the bands being called hair bands. The only other band that I can think of that I like better is Great White. At the time I was a huge Thrash Metal fan, but for some reason Kix just did it for me. It's a damn good power ballad. They should have been way more popular than they were.

2) Modern English - I Melt With You (This song was originally heard here in America in the summer of 83 thanks to the movie Valley Girl. It was released again in 1989. It was a slightly different version this time around. It seems criminal that this song never hit the top 40 either time. Either way, it's a damn good song that brings back memories of middle school whenever I hear it.

3)Bonham - Wait For You (I love the drums on this song. Jason Bonham kicks ass. THis song just has a great vibe, and yes it does have that Zeppelinesque sound to it for obvious reasons.

4) L.A. Guns - The Ballad Of Jayne (Yep it's another ballad, and damn is it a good one. I never really cared about this band at all. This happens to be one that they hit out of the park though.

5) Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians - What I Am (This is one of those songs that I'm pretty damn sure would just annoy the hell out of my wife. She just can't stand repetitive songs like this. Me, I like it!

That's it for my notable one hit wonders of the 80's. After looking at some of the one hit wonders of the 70's I'm really thinking about visiting those songs next.

I'm not aware
Of too many things
But I know it looks like
I pee when I sing

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
