ONE HIT WONDERS

Think I was too wrapped up in Grateful Dead, Bowie, and Allman Bros to notice these songs. Only recognized one of them. Still had fun with the puzzle. Might do better with a 60s version. Well, that's my excuse (snobbery).

A fine excuse it is too. I still need the occasional brillo to clean some of the others out of my brain.

I kicked butt, relatively speaking. I usually tank the WP, but I did well on this one because I knew all of the songs from high school!

Great puzzle, great memories! The best of young adulthood, being in love and being loved. We danced a lot, couldn't afford anything else. My children, born '67, '70 and '72 still love this music and now their children, my grandchildren, have it on their IPODS. Thanks Chick.

Certainly I enjoyed this puzzle by Chick. "This is my kinda stuff".
I even wrote a quiz about one hit wonders.

Afternoon Delight is a big favorite- I wrote a post in a previous thread about how I came to hear this song before its "pre-radio station broadcast" debut.
Beach Baby is also a closet favorite of mine.

If I had gotten to start a disc jockey career, these songs would have been on my playlist.
Kudos to Chick.

Thanks for a fun WP, Chick! For me it was also educational since I hadn't heard of some of the songs. I do remember "Kung Fu Fighting," though. That song used to crack me up.

That's usually somebody else's job. I just attack the attacker. Guess there's nothing to see here. I'll go home.

Um... okay. Where was the heavy metal, the polka tunes, the really awful blues or country? Are you saving those for the next one?



(I actually liked this WP, but those crappy tunes are running through my head)

OK since you asked.
Was it kung foo or kung fu?
I checked it out on the net and couldn't tell -- but if someone wants a complaint I'll throw this in.
I thought it should have been fu.

Geesus...as much as I'd love to hate you Barry, you're right.

It's Kung Fu Fighting...Yahya!

I'm resigning my WP authorship.

Good one, Chickie I had one of my favourite songs, Play That Funky Music, which we, of course, changed the words to. So now I'm playing that f*****g music, white girl Yet another puzzle that my addled brain couldn't get the connecting words in & even when I knew what it was without a letter I clicked in a couple anyway. I'm getting dumber by the minute

Chick,
I'm not sure what Barry is talking about. I had the Kung Fu Fighting puzzle, and as most people in the forum know, I copy-paste all my clues and phrases as a learning tool so I can write better WPs, and also just for the heck of it. Anyway, either "foo" was corrected by the time I got to the puzzle, or it was never wrong in the first place.

Your mom has a cool name, even if it's spelled differently from mine.
