    Jane Child - I Don't Want To Fall In Love 1990.

    There were quite a few Americans around this time who seemed to have just one big hit over here, & sometimes at home too.

    My Dad bought a copy 2nd hand late in the 1990s when it would have been very cheap.

    Chesney Hawkes you mean. He appeared at the Pavilion Theatre in Worthing in last year's panto - the place where one of my autograph books was last sent to.

    The Goodies weren't one-hit wonders, though...

    (Also, Melanie fans might take umbrage!)

    Benny Hill had a few minor hits in the early 1960s.

    Until I got a Guinness Book of Hit Singles in the early 1990s, I originally thought that Ernie was Hill's only hit - it was only when they referred to it as his "final" hit that I found out he had a couple of them in the 1960s - Transistor Radio was one of them.

    Seems strange to have stars such as Tommy Cooper and even Eamonn Andrews mentioned in the book.
