10 One Hit Wonders From 1998 That'll Make You Go "Oh Man, I Forgot About Them"

- Page 1

The late 90s were a decidedly weird time for music. While you had the massive advent of both rap and rap-rock, boy bands and teen pop princesses were also topping the charts, along with some really strange flash in the pan artists we never heard from again.

In the case of these 10 songs, we're pretty sure we haven't heard of these people again in the 20 years since 1998.

Chumbawamba - "Tub-Thumping"

This band was actually around for a LONG time before "Tub-Thumping" was absolutely everywhere, and had a pretty weird and fascinating history as some kinda weird punk rock collective. While they never hit the charts again, we still love this song to this day.

Jimmy Ray - "Are You Jimmy Ray?"

I think we all had to ask ourselves one question after hearing the title of this song: "Who the hell is Jimmy Ray?" This song and accompanying video had all the edge and danger of a 50s diner.

Jennifer Paige - "Crush"

Paige had a massive hit of a love song and seemed primed to be a teen pop sensation, but pretty soon the titans that were Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera would blow her out of the water. Too bad, 'cause it's a great song.

Semisonic - "Closing Time"

It's still played in bars the world over, despite the fact that it's actually about a birth and not about a bar closing down.

These jogging your memory yet? Wait 'til you see the rest...

The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit. The catchy lyrics had everyone saying "she bop, he bop, and we bop. I bop, you bop, and they bop." If you look up the definition for "bop," it means

10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
