Liked this thread, thought I would contribute

"Promises we plan to break
Are made in whispered voices"

and I am going to back up Sublime on the matter of Music vs. Not Music. One hit wonder refers to one song being a hit and nothing else being worth a damn. While I hate the song Santeria, it was also a hit, and the rest of that album was great, not to mention the album 40 oz. to freedom as well.
"... and I'll dip my balls in marinara
sauce so those fat bastards can get a taste of home while they're at it! "

Speaking of one hit wonders, although I hate to admit it, techinically Jimi was a one hit wonder.

Not to put words in her mouth, I'm guessing that she's pointing out that he is only credited on one Billboard Top 40 hit.

That's it. Somehow I knew YOU were going to make it more exact. But which song was it? I can't remember, I'm sure you know.

All Along the Watchtower by The Jimi Hendrix Experience peaked at #20 in 1968. IIRC, Hendrix had 7 (give or take) Hot 100 hits. Not sure if any of the backing stuff hit the Hot 100 (Isley, etc.)

Yeah, that's what I thought, cause I remember thinking, "How ironic, he didn't even write his one hit." It's all kind of a moot point though, he's a legend, and I don't think he's a one hit wonder in anyone's mind.

Although only Alanisironic, I do like that point (that he didn't write his one [Top 40] hit). In a similar vein, James Taylor's only #1 was written by Carole King.

Interestingly enough, Aerosmith has only had one #1 hit: "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." They didn't write that, either. Steve Tyler recorded it as a favor for Liv for the Armageddon soundtrack. I read somewhere that Steve is kind of bitter about that.
Jake will be here until I feel more creative again.

Yeah, but Aerosmith sucks, so it's not the same.

Not sure they're the truest lyrics of all time (because I can't understand them), but I kinda like that Fall to Pieces song by Velvet Revolver.

Fall to Pieces lyrics wrote: ...mumble mumble mumble... PIECES ...mumble mumble mumble... PIECES ...mumble mumble mumble... PIECES PIECEZZZZZZZZZZZZ
La la la la la.
