A Celebration Of One Hit Wonders From Chesney Hawkes To The Chicken Dance.
Some people are born great. Some people achieve greatness. And some people go in with a bullet at number three, enjoy a token appearance on Top of the Pops' and then never trouble 'the forty' again. 'The One & Only' is a celebration of such one hit wonders: the brilliant and the bizarre, the sublime and the ridiculous, the good, the bad and the Chesney Hawkes.
It is an affectionate trawl through the forgotten corners of our pop music past, a book to make you laugh, groan, and dust down your seven inch singles. It is also a book about the stories behind the stars, their heady journey from obscurity to fame to obscurity again. Packed with information, interviews with the one hit heroes and snippets of lyrics from those songs everyone loves to hate, 'The One & Only' is the perfect book about this very special element of pop culture.
