Ok, it actually caused me pain to see Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Bob Seger on a list on one hit wonders songs....
Here is a fun site that might be helpful!

Not really a one hit wonder, but "Itchycoo Park", by the Small Faces, takes me back to the 60s (and 6th grade). Great song!!

Putting on the Ritz actually was a hit in the 1930s from the movie "Flying Down to Rio" I believe, with Fred Astaire and I think Ginger Rogers. Not sure about Ginger Rogers.
