20 Biggest One Hit Wonders

19. “Maniac”

From the 1983 film, Flash dance, Maniac is a song by Michael Sembello. Most of its popularity is probably thanks to the film but the song topped the charts and stayed there for 16 weeks! The song went ahead to be nominated for an Academy award and a Golden Globe but sadly didn’t win. Music ran in the family as both of his brothers were also in the industry. But sadly, none of his future projects came even close to the fame of Maniac. Its video on YouTube has garnered about 74 Million views as of Dec 2020.
