10 One-Hit Wonders Who Deserved A Second Hit

4. Fool's Garden

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCDIt50hRDs Of all the artists on this list, Fool's Garden has dealt with their one-hit wonder status the greatest aplomb, taking the label in stride while releasing no fewer than 20 singles and 9 albums -- one as recently as 2015 -- since they had a surprise hit with "Lemon Tree." They don't care that most people will only know them from the quirky, Baroque pop hit from 1995. And according to lead singer Peter Freudenthaler, it could have turned out much worse for them:
€œWhat we have experienced with this song was awesome. Better to be a one-hit wonder than a Never Hit Wonder."
That's a pretty rosy outlook to have on the whole ordeal, especially considering that far too many would barely remember "Lemon Tree" if they heard it today. That's now quickly it flashed in the pan. It's unforgivable that this incredibly talented German pop band hasn't experienced, at the very least, a Ringo Starr level of success in the intervening years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-SpbqDqkaY
