    Wooley Booley (sp?)


    I guess technically the band that did Wooley Booley isn't a one-hit wonder, but rather a two-hit wonder. They also did "Little Red Riding Hood."

    Cool band, but I always forget their name.

    Was Not Was...... "Walk the Dinosaur"

    Really to bad. This song did represent the band very well at all.
    Was Not Was could very well be the last of the truly great funk rock bands.
    "IMHO" :D
