This guy was the king of one hit wonders

How about Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit in the Sky”.
I’ve always been fascinated that so much distortion could sound so good. I don’t know, was he overdriving his amp? Whatever, it sounds superb.

Man, nothing was more groovy and psychedelic than Strawberry Alarm Clock’s “Incense & Peppermints”.

They skyrocketed to number one with this first song, but they must have been very frustrated to never get close again.

Don’t remember that last one being a “hit.”

I think it was on the top 40 weekly broadcast for quite a while in 1988,I remember getting very tired of it at the time :wink:

I don’t recall ever hearing it.

Of course, in 1988, I was taking up a new position here in Oklahoma City and didn’t listen to music as much as I used to and even then I concentrated on mostly 50’s & 60’s music. With only rare exceptions, in my opinion good music DIED in 1969.
