Timothy-The Buoys

In the Year 2525-Zagar and Evans


Chick-a-Boom-Daddy Dewdrop

Brandy-The Looking glass

Green Eyed Lady-Sugarloaf But i think they had another release"Could have been a lady"

Looking Glass wasn't a one hit wonder. Their second hit wasn't as big, but it did crack the top 40 -- "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne"

"Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" was released as Sugarloaf/Jerry Corbetta & peaked at #9

Although he hit the US Top 40 only once ("Seasons"), Terry actually had many hits in Canada - with and without the Poppy Family.

Yeah, but that's Canada - I thought the thread was about one hit wonders in REAL places hahahahahahahaha

(Sorry, bad American habit to poke at Canadians baby I guess now your money is worth MORE than the US$, you deserve respect ... )

PS - The Poppy Family were great! (Now, I listening to them..)

In Cleveland 'Pipe Dream' by the Blues Magoos was a hit.

'Timothy' was written and produced by Rupert Holmes and did the same with 'Jennifer Tompkins' by the Street People only he sang that one. He also had a little hit with 'The Pina Colada song'

'Beach Baby' and 'Love Grows' were both sang by the same guy ...Tony Burrows.

It seems weird Marmalade coming up because they had a few hits here in the UK. They’re a great band to see live and really nice guys as well. ‘Reflections’ is one of my fave records.

I would have to nominate ‘Shannon’ by Henry Gross.

It’s a desperately sad song, but the video has such an ‘ahhh’ factor, especially if you’re a dog lover.
