With commercial success from such artists as Wham!, Culture Club, Bananarama and Duran Duran, it's really no surprise that a pile of idiots with bad fashion sense and no talent began to have a crack at the charts in the 1980's.
The most common breed of one-hit wonder; malcontented with attacking one sense at a time, the ensuing onslaught of colour clashes and bad melodies is the result.
One Rap - Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Encouraging dull waitresses the world over to be a little more outspoken. No no, thank you, Kajagoogoo.
Pioneered by the rise of LGBT groups, artists in this category somehow managed to record songs full of loose innuendo and hints at homosexual activities, bringing the LGBT movement to the outstanding
stereotype it took so long to get rid of recognition it deserves.
One Rap - Soft Cell "Tainted Love"
Note; you could achieve a one-hit wonder in the 80's by covering other one-hit wonders with a gay twist.
