9780141017112: We Could Have Been the Wombles: The Weird and Wonderful World of One-hit Wonders

Packed with information, interviews with the one hit heroes and snippets of lyrics from those songs everyone loves to hate, "We Could Have Been the Wombles" is the perfect book about this very special element of pop culture. Mr. Blobby: Is it just me, or is Mr. Blobby the love child of Bungle and Zippy? Eric Carmen's All by Myself: Perhaps the reason Eric is all by himself is because he's just so bloody down all the time. If you were his mate, would you pick up the phone? Billy Ray Cyrus: I'm no expert on human biology, but I'm not aware of exploding hearts being a common cause of death, even among mullet-wearing cowboys. Nena: The true message of 99 Red Balloons' is this - if you live near a war zone, for God's sake keep hold of your balloons.
