One hit wonders that you rarely hear again!

Kate Miller Heidke's set design/props on Eurovision reminded me of this video

 

Veruca Salt - Shutterbug (however don't think this was ever a hit unjustly, timing perhaps as it was released just weeks before the death of priness Di and had some unfortunate references + the title. I remember being dumbfounded by the video back in 97, which today I see as more than a tad over produced and pretentious/self conscious work, however still groundbreaking and arresting)

 

 

They did have a hit with Seether (undergroundish, punkish hit, but hit nonetheless). Part of the zeitgeist vith Elastica, Breeders, etc.. in early/mid 90s.

Ha ha! Funny that! I was thinking about them today after reading Terry Pratchet's Hogfather and a mention of the Verruca Gnome! And then you went and listed all the one hit wonders of the mid 90's in one go. Well, you did miss the one about the girl screaming to her mom that "everything's fiiiiiiiineeeeeeeee" and how much she misses and loves her.

 

Can't recall the name of the band or track. Better so I guess....

 

Cheers,

Yes, how could I have missed it: Tracy Bonham - Mother Mother.

Definitely another one of the same 90's ilk.

That's the one! Listening to that song you really felt sorry for her (and for yourself!). That was a massive whinge! Sorry, I could not make it through all of them! I guess Cannonball would have to be my choice of them all.

 

Cheers,

Yes, Cannonball is the strongest song, as well as the video - out of the lot.
