Monday's Music Moves Me: One Hit Wonders from My High School Years

I have been on a blogging hiatus but I am back today. Back just in time for Monday's Music Moves Me.  Today's theme is one hit wonders from your high school years. Below you will find a few from mine.

My high Schools years would have been 1986 to 1989.

1986 Back then "The Futures So Bright I gotta Wear Shades"

1987 Robert Cray "Smoking Gun"

To be fair, Robert Cray is a blues artist so just having a mainstream hit is a feat.

1988 Bobby McFerrin "Don't Worry be Happy"

1989 Kix "Don't Close Your Eyes"

It is a blog hop and you can check out the rest here. Thanks for visiting and I will be back soon!

The mid to late 80s I was either working or tending to wee ones. This is a period when mewsic sorta escaped me somehow. The only song in your mix I remember is "Don't Worry Be Happy" and that's only because it's been shared several times on the dance floor. I enjoyed all of the new-to-me tunes, especially "Smoking Gun". Fabulous guitar playing! Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew, my friend. Have a tunetastical day!

Nice songs. I graduated in 87, so I remember all of these.

I'm surprised Robert Cray didn't catch on, but as you say he's a blues artist and I don't think the MTV crowd was ready to listen to that. Hell of a guitar player: I had a couple of his early albums (the two before "Strong Persuader") and he was straightforward South Side of Chicago on those. Good choices here!

I recall the songs, but I was listening to different kinds of music at that time. Your high school days were a good while after mine.
