Dictionary definition of one hit wonder.
Never heard anything else from him.
Heard him interviewed several years back by Howard Stern. Always remember Norman stating he has been receiving over $100,000 per year in royalties since Spirit was released.

I agree about the Might Wah though... love that tune..
I was just about to post Cat’s in the Cradle as my fave.... but ... 2 hit wonder.

So, instead was going to choose “I Ran” by Flock of Seagulls which was a number one in Australia ... but apparently didn’t even make top 40 in Uk? So does it count?

What a song! I remember hearing it and thinking it was like nothing else I'd ever heard before.

Still brings goose bumps to me whenever I hear it... but another alas...

High Fly was a hit before it, and Slow down after it...
