Product Description

Some musicians work their whole lives for a hit song, but it never happens.

Some musicians have that hit magic only once.

These are their songs and stories.
Did you know these "One Hit" facts?

"Afternoon Delight" was inspired by the menu at a Washington, D.C. diner.

The 1977 hit "Do You Wanna Make Love" was banned in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The 1976 hit instrumental "Nadia's Theme" was first heard as underscoring in the 1972 movie Bless the Beasts and Children; it gained its title when it was used during play-backs of Nadia Comenici's gymnastic routines during the 1976 Olympics.

Sonny Geraci, lead singer of Climax (of "Precious and Few" fame) left the music business to sell siding and replacement windows in Cleveland.

The gruesome 1971 hit "Timothy" was written with the hopes of being banned, and therefore becoming a hit through the resulting notoriety.
