Notes about One-Hit Wonders:

St. Winifred's School Choir's "There's No One Quite Like Grandma" is exempted from this list as, two years previously, they appeared (though uncredited) on Brian & Michael's 1978 chart-topper, "Matchstalk Men And Matchstalk Cats And Dogs."

Tubeway Army's "Are Friends Electric" is exempted from this list as it is a pseudonym of Gary Numan.

The Young Ones "Living Doll" is exempted. As well as Cliff Richard and Hank Marvin, the single also features 'Neil,' who had a solo hit with "Hole In My Shoe" in 1984.

The Archies track "Sugar Sugar" is widely acknowledged in music folklore as the most successful track by a One-Hit Wonder in terms of its chart performance; it spent eight weeks at number one (and 23 weeks in the Top 40). A note of controversy about its status as a one-hit wonder should be sounded as one of the artistes providing the vocals for this fictitious animated group was Ron Dante. He was also lead vocalist with The Cufflinks who had two Top 40 hits ("Tracy", 1969 and "When Julie Comes Around", 1970). Applying some of the logic from the previous exemptions, perhaps the Archies should be disqualified from the list on One-Hit Wonders. This being the case, The Kalin Twins' "When" (5 weeks at no. 1 in 1958) becomes the most successful track by a One-Hit Wonder judged on chart performance.

There have been 2, million selling one hit wonders
"Eye Level" by The Simon Park Orchestra in 1970 sold 1.0million
"Teletubbies Say Eh-Oh" by The Teletubbies in 1997 sold 1.1million
