Episode 5 One-hit Wonders

60% of the time, it works every time! Or in the case of our acts today, just the once. But hey, what a great one idea that was…! Orrrrr was it? 

One hit wonders pepper the bountiful, rich history of music like the fleeting song of garden bird, or perhaps the loud shenanigans and bloodcurdling scream of a drive-by. Either way, this episode looks at those acts which stumbled upon true greatness for one time in their lives before going off to lick the wounds of decline, comfort eat or maybe tour working men’s clubs with those tacky boards with built-in flashing lights.

This week we excuse police brutality, find out who was Batman’s house band …and for some reason ignore both Chesney and Rick Astley!
