Sometimes you need some one-hit wonders to take you back to simpler times…or maybe that’s just me!  It’s time for another Tunes Tuesday and my latest playlist is as random as it gets!

The Tunes Tuesday linkup is hosted by Steff from Run Steff Run,  Kimberly from Kooky Runner, and me!  We’d love you to link up with us and share your favorites.  The theme for the second Tuesday is to be as random as possible, and I think I’ve delivered!  Maybe you’ll find some new songs to add to your workout playlist, or just get a good laugh!

And in case you missed it – here are my previous random music playlists:

What are your favorite one hit wonders? I'm sharing a few of my faves for this week's #tunestuesday! Click To Tweet

Tunes Tuesday: Random One Hit Wonders

My random taste in music is why I really enjoy Tunes Tuesdays.  I can share what I love, introduce people to artists they may have never known otherwise, and basically jam out every single day!

Some people like to call their music tastes “eclectic” but I’m going to be honest…the music I listen to is completely random!  I blame the radio, MTV, BET, having a diverse group of friends, taking several music courses in college, and Limewire (RIP) for the broad variety of music genres that I’ve absorbed over the years!

One hit wonders is a “genre” of music that I could get lost in for days, so I’m hoping that over the next few months, I’ll be able to really grow this playlist with some really random, crazy stuff that you’ll enjoy!  There are so many different directions that I look forward to exploring when it comes to one hit wonders, but for this first round of random hits, I’m starting with some standard hits with hopefully a few surprises!  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Featured Songs: One Hit Wonders

For this week's Tunes Tuesday, I'm sharing my first round of favorite one hit wonders! My music tastes are VERY eclectic so check it out for some inspiration on your workout playlist! Find more Tunes Tuesday playlists at!

I Love Your Smile – Shanice:  Whatever happened to Shanice?  This was a great song!

This Is How We Do It – Montell Jordan:  Okay we here this one on TV all the time, but it’s just that good!  Montell Jordan will never go broke!

Your Woman – White Town:  Another jam from the late 90’s.  I need to watch the music video!

What Is Love – Haddaway:  I will stop whatever I’m doing for this song…seriously!

How Bizarre – OMC:  This has to be the most random song on my very random list, haha!  But I loved this music video and I loved the song!

Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison:  I’m sitting here bobbing my head to this song while I write this post!

Party All the Time – Eddie Murphy:  I was on an 80’s music kick for a while in college…and this was definitely one of my favorite songs.  Eddie Murphy singing is comedic in and of itself!  And shoutout to Rick James!

Bitter Sweet Symphony – The Verve:  A little bit of a more mellow tune, but I’m still a big fan of this song!  Makes me want to watch Cruel Intentions, haha!

I Wanna Be Bad – Willa Ford:  She was supposed to be the next Britney, or so I thought…lol!  I still like this song!

Tubthumping – Chumbawamba:  This song should have been on my marathon motivation playlist!  It’s like I’m in the 6th grade again, lol!

Blue (Da Ba Dee) – Eiffel 65:  Okay, I will admit that I own their album.  But I bought it like 10 years after they were popular LOL.  I listen to this song at least once a week no lie!

I Wish – Skee-Lo:  I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller…at least he was honest, LOL!

Sick of Being Lonely – Field Mob:  Watching this music video takes me waaaay back!

Never Leave You  (Uh Ooh, Uh Ooh) – Lumidee:  The song is terribly out of tune, but all you need is a good beat to be a hit, right?!
