Rockwell did "Somebody's Watching Me". Ah, the days when you could buy a boom box with one speaker!

Here's mine: "Word Up" by Cameo. Also "West End Girls" by the Pet Shop Boys.

Looks like Muckster beat me to it! Had no idea he was Barry Gordy's son. Cool.

"Hocus-Pocus" by Focus & "Black-Betty" by Ram-Jam nowadays it seems like there is a lot more one-hit wonders then what there used to be like "own worst ememy" by Lit & "Sex & Candy" by Marci Playground and no I don't. know what any of these bands are doing today.

Focus have just done a reunion tour. They had other great hits as well, such as Syliva. Their drummer, Pierre, was fantastic.

Oh ho ho I just thought of two good ones.

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT! Baha men.

And I don't know who originally did that song that goes kinda like "I'm, to sexy for my shirt."
