Today's National One Hit Wonder Day. Whole albums or entire ouvres can be quite impressive, but more often than not, individual songs have the largest impact on us. Which one hit wonders have played a major role in your life?

In an attempt to think about one hit wonders that have affected my life I looked back on a list of one hit wonders thoughtfully provided by wikipedia to see how many I could still remember the tune or lyrics or anything to. It turns out that in the last ten years of one hit wonders I can only remember Steve Brookstein's cover of Against All Odds (he was the original X Factor winner), the cover of Bohemian Rhapsody by G4 (the original X Factor runners-up), Do You Really Like It by DJ Pied Piper and the Master of Ceremonies and Stars Are Blind by Paris Hilton. So how have these songs changed my life? Well one of them I own and occasionally listen to, one of them I hate with the fire of a thousand suns, one of them I liked but didn't buy and one of them my nan liked and bought. If anyone can figure out which was which they earn themselves a million points and a shiny penny.
