Can You Name These One-Hit Wonder Followup Songs?

He may have believed that he could write the world's first spherical song, but what Babylon Zoo's frontman Jas Mann couldn't do is write another hit single to follow 1996's Spaceman - the song which was brilliant for about 30 seconds at the start until it slowed down.

It still got to number one though. Sadly, its followup didn't, and off they went into oblivion with the rest of the one-hit wonder brigade.

However, all those second attempts usually got airplay, exposure and press before flopping - so can you remember the songs that came in the wake of the hits?

Test whether you're an ultimate pop fan by taking our fiendishly difficult quiz. And if you can sing a line from any one of these, then you have our undying respect.
