One hit wonders

One hit wonders

A one-hit wonder is any group or solo singer that achieves mainstream popularity, often for only one piece of work, and becomes known among the general public solely for that momentary success.

The term is most commonly used in regard to music performerswith only one hit single that overshadows their other work.

Sometimes, artists dubbed “one-hit wonders” in a particular country have had great success in other countries.

Music artists with subsequent popular albums and hit listings are typically not considered a one-hit wonder.

One-hit wonders usually see their popularity decreasing after their hit listing and most often don’t return to hit listings with other songs or albums.

In this podcast, Chris turns the tables on Sue and asks her a question – listen out for it.

David Bowie The Last Five Years

Today would have been the 70th birthday of David Bowie.

Most people do not need a lengthy introduction to the artist, actor and musician, famous for 5 decades of inspirational music that has influenced so many people in so many ways.

His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, his music and stagecraft significantly influencing popular music, right up to his last album, “Black Star” and the stageplay “Lazarus.”

Bowie was famous for his visual characters, notably Ziggy Stardust, and his ever changing persona throughout his career.

Even though, I have been a huge fan of Bowie since I was a kid, I don’t want this to be tinged with sadness, so let’s celebrate his life on what would have been hios 70th year.

Book Signing in Toulouse

Book signing is popular because an author’s signature increases the value of books for collectors.

The author may add a short message to the reader, called a dedication, to each book, which may be personalized with the recipient’s name upon request.

A simple author’s signature without a dedication is typically more valuable to collectors (exceptions include inscriptions to persons of note, e.g., from Hemingway to Fitzgerald, or to persons of significance in the author’s life).

Sometimes an author will sign additional copies for future sale.

An additional advantage to authors for doing this is that once a book has been signed, it cannot be returned to the publisher for a refund.

Many authors today spend a great deal of time signing their books, and sign many thousands of copies.

For example, James Ellroy is known for signing every copy of the 65,000 strong first run of My Dark Places

Listen to Sue as she interviews people in a bookstore in Toulouse, where the author is signing copies of his book.

If you have written, or are writing a book, here are 35 ways to make your next book signing an event.

Musicians Who Died Young The 27 Club

There’s something spooky about the number 27.

Over the years, a large number of musicians have died at the young age of 27.

This is how the idea of the so-called 27 Club was born, a concept as glamorous as it is tragic.

These celebrities were taken too soon, often as a result of drug use and troubled lives, almost as if they were killed by the pressures of fame itself.

Now, they will remain forever young, forever 27.
