You all are killing me! Bourgeois Tagg... totally forgotten that band/song, which was excellent.
Luba had at least one minor American hit - "Let It Go" - I was surprised when I found out she was big in Canada.
I have no idea what Joe Jackson is doing on this list. He had lots of hits - "Is She Really Going Out With Him", "Stepping Out", "Breaking Us In Two" (great song, even though it only nicked the charts), "You Can't Get What You Want", "Right And Wrong". Note - I'm not sure of their chart positions, I just know they were frequently played on mainstream radio).
Eric Carmen and Jermaine Jackson (unfortunately) not one hit wonders.

Burning The Ground posted a great rip of the Boy's Don't Cry - I Wanna Be A Cowboy 12". Interesting information included: track was signed by Paul Oakenfold!

#1 in UK and most of Europe, top 20 in the US. She had a second minor hit in the UK but that's all. Massive in Italy though.

xpost. Wikipedia says After 7 had eleven hit singles in the US.
Need to change the title of this thread to "Band who you don't know had more than one hit/ had lots of hits but not in your country/had many hit albums but just one hit single you remember/ otherwise successful artists who released a one-off single under a pseudonym."
