Ah, yes. Stretching the definition of the word 'hit', we have Deep Blue Something's follow-up single, 'Josey', which got to #27 in December 1996. I hear they have a new album out now, so maybe they'll be able to add to that. Sabrina also had a minor chart entry in late 1988, with 'All of Me', which peaked at #25.

Nick Berry's definitely not a one-hit wonder though. His cover of 'Heartbeat', as heard in his TV show of the same name, got to #2 in 1992.

Glen Medeiros surprises us with a second chart single too, 'She Ain't Worth It', which got to #12 in 1990 (his actual second single, 'Long and Lasting Love' failed to get into the top 40, but no doubt figures on a 'greatest hit' compilation somewhere).

Which leaves us with Anita Dobson. I don't think we can call a #43 chart position a hit, even if it is called 'Talking of Love'. So we have a bona fide one-hit wonder!! smiley - bubbly
