What do I mean by "lost song?" Well, it could be a one-hit-wonder's only claim to fame. It could be a group that had one big hit, and a couple that got lost in the shuffle. Or it could be one of the lesser hits of a bigger group. But for some reason, all of these songs got lost somehow. They rarely show up on "Best of" collections. You almost never hear them on "Mix" or "Jack"-type radio stations. Everyone seems to have forgotten about them. But not me.
1. "No Myth" by Michael Penn - This is one of my favorites, sung by Sean Penn's brother, and Madonna's former brother-in-law. Too bad she couldn't have helped him have a bigger career.
2. "Baby Love" by Regina - Speaking of Madonna, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is one of her early hits.
3. "The Sun Always Shines on TV" by a-ha - You thought a-ha was a one-hit wonder, didn't you? Nope, "Take on Me" wasn't their only hit.
4. "Come as You Are" by Peter Wolf - Best known for being the lead singer of the J. Geils Band, Wolf had a couple of solo hits too.
5. "Living in a Dream" by Pseudo Echo - They're best known for their cover of "Funkytown," but this one got play before that one did.
6. "Pop Goes the World" by Men Without Hats - Sure, you can sing "Safety Dance" in your sleep, but can you remember this one? It even has a little riff from their big hit buried at the end.
7. "Hyperactive" by Thomas Dolby - Everyone knows "She Blinded Me with Science. But this one rarely gets played.
8. "Two Tribes" - Their biggest hit "Relax" is omnipresent in 80s compilation albums and radio stations, and is still a pop-culture touchstone. But "Two Tribes" gets no love.
