What is Buzzjack's favorite One-Hit Wonder? Let's find out.

Phase 1: Nominations
- Everyone can nominate 5 one hit wonders per day - each song only needs one nomination.
- Every song that is nominated will be featured on the shortlist for phase 2.
- What constitutes a one hit wonder? Any artist that has only ever had ONE hit in the Official UK Top 40.
- Aliases for more famous artists do not count (eg. Tim Berg - Seek Bromance, as Tim Berg was Avicii's alias).
- Solo artists from successful bands do count however.
- The one hit wonder tag is based on MAIN artist only. The featured artists can have had multiple hits.
- If credit is shared by a successful artist and a one hit wonder (eg. Khalid & Normani), then the song is ineligible for this game.
- Songs released in 2018 are not eligible for this chart as it's too early to tell whether those artists are in fact one hit wonders.
- A song can be featured if the artist only has had ONE other Top 40 hit and that hit spent no more than one week in the Top 40 = i.e. it wasn't a hit, it was a blink-and-you'll-miss-it flop. (NEW)

Phase 2: Cutting down
- The songs will be split into groups intended to cut down the list to only a 100 songs. The groups will be randomized.
- The number of groups and number of songs in each group will depend on how many songs are nominated in the first phase.

Phase 3: The Top 100
- The Top 100 will be decided by a rate. Each poster must rate the songs from 0 to 100 and will be allowed a combined total of 5 +11s and -1s (so you can give 4x +11 and 1x -1 for example).

Phase 4: The Results
- Results will be posted.

Each Phase takes about a week, except the final phase which will be 10 songs per day (or so).

So without further adieu, start nominating your favourite one hit wonders!

Each poster can nominate 5 songs per day. Each song only needs one nomination.
First Phase will be open until 02. June, 2018 at 23:59 GMT.

Yep, checks out. Please make sure your artists have only charted once in the Top 40.

Polyhex might help

In terms of nominating 5 songs per day, when do days reset? Midnight (UK time)? 24 hours since your last vote?

Not that I'm going to stake out the thread to try to get in as many votes as possible, just curious kink.gif

Also, to be sure, do features count towards an artist's maximum 1 top 40 hit? eg, could I nominate Wynter Gordon's 'Dirty Talk' (she also featured on Flo Rida's top 40 hit 'Sugar')?

-

Cage The Elephant - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked
Hot Natured - Benediction
Indiana - Solo Dancing
Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (not at all because the title is clearly about me)
Nalin & Kane - Beachball

Would supergroups such as McBusted count?

Ah, no problem. I'm actually quite happy about that!
