This song was a hit for the British band, Status Quo, back in 1967. Actually, it was their only hit, but they did a pretty good job of making psychedelic rock sound more bubblegum. However, despite their one-hit wonder status, the band continues to record and tour to this day, so you've got to give them points for determination.

This song was a hit for the British band, Status Quo, back in 1967. Actually, it was their only hit, but they did a pretty good job of making psychedelic rock sound more bubblegum. However, despite their one-hit wonder status, the band continues to record and tour to this day, so you've got to give them points for determination. Despite a few lineup changes and other challenges, they have actually managed to release their one hundredth single, "Bula Bula Quo", this past June.

Got any favorite one-hit wonders?
