As I mentioned on my afternoon show on Heart 100.7 the other day, Daniel Powter’s 2005 hit ‘Bad Day’ has been named the biggest one-hit wonder of the decade! The track came first in the list compiled by Billboard.

So how did they work this out? Simples. The acts and songs were ranked by how high their hit single climbed on the Hot 100 compared to how far down the tally their subsequent highest-charting effort peaked.

So, the top ten one-hit wonder singles are:

1. Daniel Powter: ‘Bad Day’
2. Terror Squad: ‘Lean Back’
3. Crazy Town: ‘Butterfly’
4. MIMS: ‘This Is Why I’m Hot’
5. D4L: ‘Laffy Taffy’
6. James Blunt: ‘You’re Beautiful’
7. Gnarls Barkley: ‘Crazy’
8. Blu Cantrell: ‘Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)’
9. Bo Bice: ‘Inside Your Heaven’
10. Dream: ‘He Loves You Not’.

I’ll confess to 7/10 (which is hardly suprising as I am a DJ after all) but I won’t say WHICH ones. No, no, no… ;o)
