What are we doing?
Musical tastes change. It is said that what you listen to early in life is what you’ll prefer for the rest of your life. But then you’ll find yourself bopping your head along to a song that just hit the charts last week.
This project started with a deceptively hard question: “If you listened to everything on a One Hit Wonder album except for the hit, would you find anything else that might resonate today?”
Our mission: listen to the albums of every One Hit Wonder who hit the Top Ten of the US or Canada, excluding the one hit, and rate the rest of the album.
There’s definitely music we’ve never heard before, and we bet you haven’t either. Maybe we’ll find some gold, or something that is in the roots of another famous song. Maybe we’ll find headaches and sadness.
Check for updates every Friday! And then again on Saturday if we forget.
