It’s One-Hit Wonder Wednesday! Each week, I’ll pick a one-hit wonder to stir nostalgia and make us all ask “what were people thinking?”

This week, it’s “Brand New Key” by Melanie.

Believe it or not, this song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts in December 1971 and January 1972! Number one! What does that say about musical taste in the early ’70s?

Check back next week for another One Hit Wonder Wednesday!
