Never heard of either of those before.

Lets go for some proper class:

Odd definition of one hit wonder here. Adamski and Visage had a number of hits.
I'll go for this..

Again Kraftwerk had other hits. It was their only number one.

I genuinely didn't know Adamski had troubled the charts any other time. Could've researched, admittedly.

I hesitate to put a pioneer like Bam in a "one hit wonder" thread but, I don't remember Soulsonic Force having other hit records.

Not really, his biggest Billboard hit was no.36. In the Uk he had a few minor hits in addition to Supernature. I guess it's debatable how strict we want to be with the definition of one hit wonder. However I wasn't just being pedantic with Visage and Adamski, they actually had a number of sizable hits in the UK other than the songs mentioned.

Bought the Freur on 12" at the time, by the way. Love it.

Fade to Grey practically defines the genre for me but Night Train was also a hit.
