10 One-Hit Wonders That Defined The Early 2000s

10. Howie Day - "Collide"

Oh yeah. Oh you were definitely going to slow dance the hell out of this one when it came on. And if you played your cards right, there was a good chance your bathing suit areas would be "colliding" later that night.

Those soft "doo doo doos" really struck a chord with the listening public for some reason, partly because it was just so damn earnest and partly because we mistakenly thought this was another James Blunt song. Either way, people were ready to announce Howie Day the next big crooner for about three months, right until Daniel Powter came out with "Bad Day" and everyone thought James Blunt had just released another hit song.

Still, bet you can't not sing those "doo doo doos" whenever this song comes on.
