    AFAIK this was the only hit that Barry McGuire had.

    On a wider note, whatever happened to anti-war songs I can't remember the last time I heard one.

    At least in America, it's also a anti war song.



    and at 59 years, she still rocks it.

    You beat me to posting that song, SpearBrave! One of my favourites.

    At least in the United States, Nik Kershaw was a one-hit-wonder, but in the UK I think he was more popular. It's strange, but every time I go to the market, another one of Kershaw's songs, "The Riddle", seems to be playing.

    I have many of Nena's albums. My favorite by far is Willst Du mit mir gehn

    I wouldn't consider her a "one hit wonder" by any standard.

    You may not but she and the band are considered that way.

    Anyhow, here is one and it was the first video played on MTV.
