The title says it all.

Like them or not, some bands had only one hit single. (Many had none!)
Like the cool 4 Non Blondes, the band Semisonic with several singles (still just one hit), or the iconic A-Ha.
And then there's "those guys" that sang Macarena, or "those dudes" that barked...

Na minha opinião Tatu encaixa sem dúvida nesta lista!
A-Ha, apesar de tudo, tiveram realmente aquele único grande hit internacional reconhecido por todos (desapareceram, e há relativamente pouco tempo reapareceram com um novo vídeo, mas, e apesar de terem tido outros singles, tiveram só aquele enorme êxito mundial difundido nos anos 80)
Semisonic é que também já acho relativo... mas de qualquer forma escrevi que tiveram outros singles conhecidos.
Retirei agora foi Eagle Eye-Cherry (embora "classificado" como tal... "Are You Still Having Fun?" e "Falling In Love Again" foram basicamente tão grandes como "Save Tonight"!)

Everclear should not be on this list. They had a string of hit singles in the 90s ("Santa Monica", "Father of Mine", "You Make Me Feel Like a Whore" to name a few). I've never heard of a song by them called "Wonderful".

Start typing "Everclear" on your search engine - the word "Wonderful" immediately pops up there as a suggestion.
How come you've never heard of it? Well, it's here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonderful_%28Everclear_song%29
They had a string of singles in the 90s, not *international* hits.
