Music Trivia... 1000 One Hit Wonders from the 1970's and 1980's; A Decade at a Time

Available in one bumper book, or in individual decades.

Everyone who likes music, likes music trivia; the two go together like melted cheese on a porcupine! But there's one facet of the music business which has more than its fair share of our interest; the One Hit Wonder.
Love them or hate them, One Hit Wonders stick in our brains; you just can’t get the tune out of your head!

That said, most of the One Hit Wonder books out there stick to the top 100 or so, you know, "The Usual Suspects". Heck, we all know about Nena's 99 Red Balloons. We've been through Carl Douglas and his 'Kung Fu Fighting' stage. We've probably all injured ourselves working out to Men Without Hats Safety Dance!
We felt it was time for a re-boot to the subject. We researched for months and when we came up for air, we were amazed at our findings. 
We've dug up nearly 500 One Hit Wonders from the 1970's.
And followed that with nearly 500 One Hit Wonders from the 1980's. (And we're working on the 50's and 60's too!)

We know you have your favorite decade of music (because the rest is just boring rubbish, right?) and if your decade is the 70's, then you don't want a book filled with 50's doo-wop or Nirvana's grunge. If your decade is 1980's Flock of Seagulls, you don't want to wade through glam rock, punk and skiffle!
You want your decade. 
So we've made it easy for you to do just that.You pick your decade, and ignore the rest!
We've already done the 70's and 80's and we're hard at work on the 50's and 60's!

Available in single decades or in bumper bundles, we've catered to you... the music lover. We've packed the book full of ALL the one hit wonders we could find... the popular ones, the rare, off the wall ones. We've got facts, chart positions, and crazy trivia of the songs we all have come to love and hate. Every one holds its own unique story, some sad, some inspiring, and some include as much drama as a Hollywood adventure movie. 

The complete trivia for the One Hit Wonders from the 70's & 80's (nearly 500 of them from each decade!) will make you listen to your favorite songs in a whole new light.
For instance... 
 Did you know that Dave Edmunds’ hit “Cruel to be Kind”, stalled at number 12 of every major chart? All SIX of them!
Did you know that rock legends Led Zeppelin are a One Hit Wonder in the UK? 

 Did you know that Minnie Ripperton and Van McCoy (both one Hit Wonders in 1975) both died in the same month… in July 1979? 

Why accept lesser volumes that just offer you the top 100 songs of all time? With information taken from Official Music Charts all over the world, we give a global overview of the one hit wonders of these special decades. 
Get the 80's Kindle here for just $1.99
With details from the US Billboard Hot 100 and Canada, the UK Charts, hits from Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and many European charts, we think this is the most detailed list ever researched. Indexed and cross-referenced for ease of use, whether you are a music buff or just want the answers for your local pub trivia night, these books are for you!

The bumper 70's and 80's book, with close to 1000 songs, nearly 300 pages of information, chart positions, sales figures, trivia facts and much more will provide you with hours of fun and nostalgia. 
Available in Amazon kindle or on Paperback...
Sit with the book as your reference and crank up YouTube!
A must for any music lover of that magical age, the 70's and 80's!
