your chart must have its fair share of acts that only score one big hit, share your own.

and some rules I'm self imposing:
- any act that is 'technically' a one-hit wonder because all their other hits pre-dated the inception of my chart, do not count.
- an act may have one other 'small' hit (1-3 weeks in chart and peak outside top 20) and still count.
- songs from 2018 or those that are still in the chart do not count.
- charity collectives do not count.
- if two artists have joint lead credit both must be one-hit wonders

this is by no means a full list, just the longest-running / biggest / most notable ones mostly
