One-hit wonders

If it were up to me, apparently there would have been a lot more "one-hit wonders." There are about 50 artists for whom I've only downloaded one song. Lots of them you wouldn't know, but some of them you would. A partial list, in alpha order:

Air Supply - I'm All Out of Love
Andrew Peterson - Faith to be Strong
Annie Lennox - Why
Asia - Heat of the Moment
Bad English - When I See You Smile
Beyonce - Single Ladies
Big & Rich - Lost in this Moment
Bill Ray Cyrus - Ready, Set, Don't Go
Chris Tomlin - How Great is Our God
Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You into the Dark
The Dream Academy - Life in a Northern Town
Elton John - Circle of Life
Erasure - A Little Respect
Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry
Fleetwood Mac - Bleed to Love Her
Howard Jones - No One is to Blame
Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
Jonas Brothers - When You Look Me in the Eyes
Joshua Kadison - Jessie
Justin Timberlake - What Goes Around
Kate Voegele - It's Only Life
Maroon 5 - Won't Go Home without You
Michael W. Smith - Somewhere Somehow
Naked Eyes - Always Something There to Remind Me
Newsboys - In the Hands of God
Nickelback - Gotta be Somebody
Night Ranger - Sister Christian
Norah Jones - Don't Know Why
Pat Benetar - We Belong
Peter Gabriel - In Your Eyes
Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl
Sara Evans - A Real Fine Place to Start
SHeDaisy - I'm Taking the Wheel
Survivor - The Search is Over
Wynonna Judd - Only Love

What's funny to me is that for many of these artists, I owned a lot of their CDs back in the day, but I guess when I transferred the CDs to iTunes several years ago, I didn't find much of their music compelling enough to move over.

I mean, some of them (Beyonce, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac) are legitimately one-hit wonders. But I'm surprised I don't have more Andrew Peterson or Justin Timberlake. Better go git to downloadin'.

Walt, I don't know where that came from, either. I had "transferred" at one point, but I changed it for some reason. Perhaps because it was after 1 a.m.

SET, I knew you would say that.
