From Tommy Tutone to A-ha, many bands and singers slapped with the "one-hit wonder" label are actually anything but. Here are just 40 of them.
Power pop band Tommy Tutone made one particular phone number all the rage in 1982 with their No. 4 hit song "867-5309/Jenny." While the band is often recalled as a one-hit wonder, it already had scored another top-40 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 with "Angel Say No" in 1980. Check out some other "one-hit wonders" that actually reached the top 40 more than once during their careers.
