One Hit Wonders
(Voter Thread)
 

Welcome To The Canteen Music Dedication!!
In our continued effort to bring music themes that you want, we continue this week with our Canteen voted thread of One Hit Wonders!

This list was compiled from various sources. Some of you may disagree with an artist showing up in our One Hit Wonders list, but that's okay. We're not here to state that we are the authority on such matters. We're here to enjoy some music from popular artist (although, not popular for long) of their respective music eras.

There are many artists/songs that are considered One Hit Wonders. However, we don't have all day and night to list them. We've gotta sleep now and again! Hehehe!

We enjoy feedback. If you have requests, please ping laurenmarlowe on the thread or via FReepmail.

As always, we greatly appreciate the opportunity to entertain our Troops, Veterans, and their family members.

Enjoy!

D.O.A.
~ Bloodrock ~


Bloodrock was an early '70s hard rock band out of Fort Worth, Texas, led by singer/drummer Jim Rutledge for the first LP, Bloodrock. They charted with six albums between 1970 and 1972 and scored a single Top 40 hit with the morbidly depressing "D.O.A." from their second, gold-selling LP, Bloodrock 2.

Thanks, MoJo!

:-) It's so nice to see all of you. I eaves drop on you regularly! I really appreciate your music and your friendly conversations. You are all wonderful people. I don't think you guys know how pleasant it is to be able to "just sit in the room with you" as you chat.

:-) You're good people.
