Quote of the Day
I'm in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the One-Hit Wonder Wall. I'm still very troubled by the fact that I'm in the hall and my dad isn't.
This whole 'X Factor' thing with people assuming I'm going to be a one-hit wonder - that won't happen with me.
There's always been a lot of pressure and tension on the line. If 'Pi' didn't work out, I have no idea what my career would be. I don't think I would have gotten another shot at it. If 'Requiem for a Dream' didn't work out, they would have called me a 'one-hit wonder with a sophomore slump'.
I grew up listening to Nirvana and then went through some bad '90s pop stuff - a lot of Australian one-hit wonders.
We've got great fans that rock and roll won't have, because you can have a one-hit record and country music used to, not so much anymore and you have a fan forever.
I'm not into one-hit wonders.
My understanding of this life is that you tour and play for years and years, have some longevity and a steady career. That may sound boring, but I always thought that was less depressing than being a one-hit wonder.
If you have to be a one-hit wonder, then 'San Francisco' is the one to have.
I am not trying to model my career to be a one-hit wonder.
If I'd been easily discouraged, I could have been a one-hit wonder.
Laurell K. Hamilton
I'm not a one-hit wonder as some suggest. I've had a couple of hits, but still, all of my hits were in the '70s. There was pretty much nothing in the '80s, '90s, or in the first full decade into the next millennium.
A lot of people thought I was going to be a one-hit wonder, so I had that chip on my shoulder.
I don't want to be a one-hit wonder.
I want to be around for a long time. I don't want to be a one-hit wonder.
There are a lot of people out there who are just waiting that we fail. They brought up the theory that we're one-hit wonders and they want us to fall flat on our noses, just to prove them right.
I haven't had the most lucrative career. If I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a one-hit wonder.
The Small Faces are thought to be a one-hit wonder in America because we only had 'Itchycoo Park.' Then the Faces just had 'Stay with Me.' So both bands could be considered one-hit wonders in America, even though we had several huge hits in England.
Sometimes I make an analogy that each scientific paper is like putting out another record. And some people have careers that are nothing but a one-hit wonder. And then there are people who are only appreciated by aficionados but largely forgotten by the wider community.
A lot of people, they want you to be a one-hit wonder.
