I was far enough out that the wind blew the sound in waves of amplitude and clarity, which was really very freaky!

If we're going down that road Hanson had several U.K. hit singles. Which kind of ruins the entire premise of the original post?

I love this song and I'm fairly sure this was their only (minor) hit.

I looked it up and surprisingly, it didnít make it. Dreams of you made it to 36 which I wouldnít say was a hit. Great guitar player.

Still not sure to this day if he was taking the piss.

Hopefully avoiding any repetitions, I'd say:

Boy Meets Girl - Waiting For A Star To Fall
Wang Chung - Dance Hall Days
Sly Fox - Let's Go All The Way
Matthew Wilder - Break My Stride
Fastball - The Way

And is Spiller - Groovejet allowed?!

Had to look it up as it was so big but you are correct it got to no 27 in UK chart, they had three others also that charted but didnít make top 40 in UK.

Video made No1 in 15 countries. First hit wonders would probably be a better thread for this one

The greatest pop song ever. And that's a fact. Unless you know different...
Sorry to drag up this old thread but me and my boy (who's soon to be a dad) were talking the other night and this song popped up in the conversation.
Turns out he loves it too and for some reason it reminds him of our trips to Florida.
My boy.
